Something To Look Forward To!

I registered for a couple of knitting classes at the local adult school. Let's see if this gives me the kick I need to start and actually finish something. And finish it well. I am really looking forward to both of them.

Knitting 102
This class is designed for those of you who had Knitting 101 and want to go further or for those who feel that their skills are more advanced than an introductory course. We will learn more advanced techniques such as knitting in the round, making garments from the neck down, socks many ways such as toe up and on circular needles. We will be able to make a sampler using intricate cables and a variety of special stitches. Special attention will be paid to reading patterns and finishing projects so that they look like an artisan made them instead of homemade. You will need to bring your current or desired projects,knitting worsted weight yarn and size 8 needles to class.

If you have knitted garments that you have put away because you do not know how to put them together, bind them off, add edgings, this class is intended to let you get those garments out to finish and use. We will cover all those problems and include seaming, picking up stitches for neckbands and sleeves, blocking, buttonholes and any other technique needed for you to have a finished garment. Reading charts, duplicate stitching, I cord borders will also be included as appropriate. Since this class will not teach knitting,you need to know how and have some garments you need help on, however,please bring size 8 needles, straight or circular and smooth knitting worsted to class as well.

Now, doesn't that sound like fun?
