Sweater KAL (Knit A Long)

Every Wednesday afternoon in February and March from 3 – 5 pm you are invited to join in the fun of knitting a sweater! The first class will be casting on the sweater and after that you can drop in any Wednesday over the 2 months for help when you need it or just come and knit with the group for company.

We will be knitting your choice of 2 patterns Flax by TinCan Knits or Soldotna by Caitlin Hunter. Long sleeves can be added to the Soldotna easily and a bit of body length in this workshop.

Mosaic Wet Felted Scarf Workshop

Saturday February 8th from 10 am to 4 pm

Lesley Snyder, owner of Rosehaven Yarn Shop, will be teaching the mosaic felting course. Lesley is a fibre artist that has been felting for a decade and selling her shawls and garments in her shop and also at Arts On Main gallery where she was a member for a number of years.

Lesley will show you how to create texture, play with colour and work with negative space to create something unique and different in a shawl. We will work on applying different fabrics along with the wool to create layers, texture and add movement to your piece. We will be using resists as well to add more texture. Plus a few tricks to adding 3 dimensional pieces.

There will be an hour lunch break when you can visit a local cafe or bring a lunch if you prefer.
Call the shop Monday to Saturday, 10-5 to register and pay for your spot. 613-476-9092.

Beginner’s Knitting Class

Friday Evenings from 5 pm to 7 pm

Beginners Knitting Class

These Friday evenings are set up so you can come when it works for you. Pick a couple of Fridays, let us know, and voila your knitting class has begun!

We are here to help! You could want to refresh your knitting skills if it’s been a few years or to expand your knitting repertoire and try a pattern that is a bit more of a challenge. I can help you with whatever kind of thing you would like to take on during these 2 hours. Or if it’s your first time knitting we can start with a simple dish cloth to get you going.

These first 2 hours will get your hands going in the right direction of a knitting project.

Price is $15 an hour for assistance or priced according to the project you want to take on. Call the shop to book your spot. 613-476-9092

Men’s Knitting Class

IS BACK!! Every Sunday from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Men's fingerless gloves

Afraid you’re not man enough to learn to knit? If you can hold two sticks and count to 10 then I can teach you to make stuff that will cause people to look at you and say, “Wow, look at you!”

Early on we’ll keep it simple by tackling casting on, simple knit and purl stitches, & binding off as you make a couple of easy peasy washcloths just like your Grandpa used to use because your Grandma knit them for his lazy ass!

We’ll progress through knitting projects like hats, scarves, fingerless gloves (because ain’t nobody dumb enough to knit fingers) and eventually work up to full on sweaters! Trust me if I can do it then you can too!
