Knitting with Megan Cummins

Date: Thursday mornings through February
Time: 8:15 – 10:30am
Location: Parent Child Room, 1301 W Loyola
What do you get when you rub two sticks together? Fire, right? Well, we are igniting the fire of learning by rubbing those sticks together—and adding wool. Yes, it’s time to learn to knit. This is a great skill and a lot of fun too! We will learn how to knit from fellow CWS parent and Urban Prairie handwork teacher, Megan Cummins. We will learn to cast on, knit, purl and even bind off. Don’t get cold feet…Why? We will learn how to make socks too! Please register with Parent Education Lead,  Lisa Rekstad.
