HOWARD LAKE, MN Slip next stitch purlwise, slip next stitch knitwise. Slip next two stitches onto cable needle and leave at back of work.
What does that even mean?
Luckily, for those who aren’t yet familiar with knitting jargon, but still have an interest in picking up some needles, the Great River Regional Library in Howard Lake is offering knitting classes this September.
“Knit Wits” is a class taught by experienced knitter Sherrin Houtman of Howard Lake.
In this setting, participants are given the opportunity to learn how to knit for the first time or can attend just for help on certain techniques.
Those who register can discover new knitting trends, and have the chance to work on projects in the company of fellow knitters.
This year, classes will take place every Friday starting Sept. 9, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The class is recommended for seniors, adults, and teens.
The event is free. Pre-registration is available, but not required.
To pre-register, one can call (320)650-2510.
