Something about having a high school senior will MAKE you think about college. A lot of colleges offer what they call a "Maymester", a condensed study time that will give you an entire course over just a month's time. I think that sounds pretty nifty so I decided that if they can do it, so can I.
If you'd like to ramp up your knitting skills and techniques in one short month, now's your chance! Starting April 25 with my combined Beginning Knit/Purl class, you can learn a whole mess of techniques during the KnitOasis Maymester.
April 25 (Sat, 9-11am)--Beginning Knit/Purl
May 2 (Sat, 2-4pm)--Startin' Off Right: Cast ons
May 4 (Mon, 6-8pm)--Knit Around & Up & Down: Knit a beret in the round with simple increases and decreases
May 12 (Tues, 6-8pm)--Finishin' Strong: Bind offs and (some) seaming
May 16 (Sat, 2-4pm)--Intro to Fixing Mistakes
May 23 (Sat, 9-11am)--Lace Sampler: Intro to Lace Knitting
