Continental Knitting: Knit a Scarf
Knitting is not only a great survival skill. The repetitive motion of knitting makes it a natural stress reducer; gentle hand movements prevent and relieve arthritis. Use a Continental approach, which is faster than American because you work with only one hand. Learn it all–from deciphering most common pattern abbreviations to finishing the last stitch of your scarf. Great for gift giving too! NOTE: Scarf yarn will be discussed during the first class and is to be purchased before the second meeting. Right-handed knitting will be taught, although instruction will be modified for left-handers.
