Successful Class on Casting On

Many thanks to Shirley and Terry for a fabulous class on cast-ons. The four hours went quickly as we learned and experimented with different ways to cast on for knitting. As is typical of guild meetings, members helped each other master the cast-ons,

Special thanks to Shirley and Terry for a great class, and to Sonya at Yorkshire Yarns. And, thanks to Joan D. for organizing the class, and to JJ and Nita for the cake and muffins.

  • A medium-sized crochet hook.
