I offer a variety of knitting classes for adults and children; descriptions of each are below.
ADULT KNITTING CLASSES
Weekly sessions to get help with your current project. This small, informal clinic allows you to work at your own pace, get helpful advice, learn new skills, and share with other knitters. A great way to finish that project you put in your closet! During each clinic, I’ll showcase a knitting technique. For example, one week we might cover types of knitted ruffles; another week I’ll demonstrate a new cast-on method.
Days of the week that clinics are offered vary each week but typically include one morning and one evening. Cost for the 2-hour clinic is $15.
2-at-a-time Toe-Up Socks - 4 classes beginning Thursday evening, September 14; $60
Learn to knit socks two at a time, toe-up. Knitting socks this way allows you to try them on as you go, ensuring a great fit! We will meet weekly for the first 2 classes, then bi-weekly for the last 2. This will provide more time to knit between class times.

LINCOLN SUDBURY ADULT EDUCATION

Fall is the perfect time to learn to knit! Join me to learn this timeless craft. During the course of four weeks, you will learn the basics of knitting (knit stitch, purl stitch, casting on and off) while making your choice of a lovely hat or cowl. If time permits, you could knit both – ideal unique gifts for yourself of others! Students should bring size 10 16” circular knitting needles and one ball of bulky weight yarn, or may purchase supplies from the instructor at the first class.

In this 3-part class, you will learn how to make a lovely pair of mittens either for an adult or child. These mittens make great holiday gifts! In this class, you’ll learn how to knit using the magic loop technique or double-pointed needles. In addition, you’ll learn how to knit the thumbs and thumb gussets.
Private classes and parent-child classes are available. Contact email@example.com or call 978-758-3756 for more information.
For Brownies, Jr. Girl Scouts, and Girl Scouts. This workshop will enable your troop to get their knitting badge or part of the Craft or Yarn/Fabric Arts badges. All materials (yarn, knitting needles, pattern) are included. Note that a minimum of 6 girls is required. Two options are available:
Option 1: we’ll meet for a single 2-hour session. During that time, Diane will teach the kids the basics of knitting – cast on, cast off, knit stitch. $20 per child.
Option 2: We’ll meet twice for 1.5 hours each. During the first meeting, we’ll focus on the basics of knitting and casting on, while making a small beanbag.
