It's a bring-your-project-and-knit, like Stitch ' beach with a teacher available. I'm so excited. It's hard to knit for any length of time with my toddler needing attention, and this marks the FIRST regular evening I've claimed for myself since she was born 28 months ago. She and her daddy are having a date night, and I'm making really complicated scarves.

Sounds like it will be good for all three of you! Have fun!

You have a great time. It fun to be with other knitters and chat and knit and chat and knit. Be careful you don't chat so much you blow your knitting. I have done that and then rip a bit.

Hi Rachel, I can completely relate. I have a 36 month old son, a 15 month old daughter, and an 11 year old daughter and they all need attention. I am able to knit here and there during the day, but it is sooooo nice to be able to get out and knit with other adults, uninterrupted. Enjoy and hopefully date night will go so well her daddy will want to do it again! My fingers are crossed for you!

I had a great time! I felt like I was playing hooky, but my babe did okay, too. She starts morning nursery school a few days a week this week, too. Yikes!

I take knitting classes to get away from the house, and be around other ladies. Learning to knit better is just a side effect. To bad it costs $80 a month lol...

Rachel, what was being taught in the class??? Anything to share with us... There may be others who are contemplating taking a knitting class but unsure whether they will fit in.

I have been tempted to join a knitting class for the last year or so. I finally signed up after dropping by the wool shop that I visit on occasion and saw 6-7 ladies, sipping tea and coffee, relaxed with their knitting projects underway. My class starts September 28/04 - I have also convinced my sister-in-law to attend as well. As a first-time attendee, I am sure I will be a bit anxious, however I know I will be welcomed and enjoy being in the company of fellow knitters!

There's no specific aim for the class, although the same teacher also offers workshops for particular projects. This is just a thing where you bring your project and work on it, with a bunch of other knitters and a teacher in the room to help you if you get stuck. It was GREAT. I am just working on a bunch of complicated scarves. I've discovered since I started knitting lace that working in complex patterns is really helping me learn to read my knitting, so I'm just trying lots of different patterns and techniques. Other people in the class were making sweaters, ponchos, and afghans, and two people were starting their very first projects. I'm SO glad I signed up!
