A two-part workshop working with four needles and 4-ply yarn 'in the round' to make a pair of warm woollen gloves. The first evening session introduces working on four needles, and the second is aimed at demystifying knitting the fingers! Suitable for knitters who are confident with casting on and off, the basic knit and purl stitches, and who are looking for a more challenging project that won't take months to finish!
One -to-One Tuition
If you are unable to come to a workshop on a particular date, Heather does offer one-to-one tuition which she can tailor to whatever you are interested in learning.
Knit and Knatter Group
The B2K K&K is an opportunity for knitters of all ages and levels of experience to get together informally over a cup of tea/coffee for a Knit and a Knatter. These are purely social gatherings so no tuition is provided. For those wanting to learn to knit, or a little refresher on certain techniques, please have a look at our workshops page. Or why not book some friendly one-to-one tuition with Heather for as little as £7.50 per 15 mins at the Born to Knit studio at Fisherton Mill.
Heather runs two ‘Knit & Knatter’ groups, both in Salisbury. For information about dates, times and arrangements, please see the Born to Knit website.
