Berkshire Athenaeum volunteer Ann Tierney will offer a ten-week series of free knitting classes, on Thursdays, 6 – 7:30 pm, running from September 15 – November 17.
Participants will learn to cast on, cast off and knit, finishing either a scarf or a set of coasters (or potentially both!).
Needles for novice knitters will be provided by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum; practice yarn will be provided by Ann Tierney. Work on projects at home is strongly recommended!
Space is limited and registration is required. Register at firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting the Reference Department during regular library hours (413) 499-9480 x202.
[A second set of lessons is planned for the Winter/Spring and will teach participants to knit and purl. Industrious knitters will create a baby
blanket or a lap robe by the end of the second course.]
