About the Workshop

Looking to use your isolation time to get creative? Learning to knit will provide you with a skill that will give exponential rewards - from making gifts for friends; making yourself knitted items; charity knits to benefit others - and including a sense of mindfulness as you learn and enjoy peaceful knitting time.

Part 2: 

Follow up as to how the knit stitch is going from Part 1. Treena will help address any issues or mistakes that may need to be tackled or fixed. If all is going well, this is an opportunity to enjoy a knit social together and discuss project options for next steps.

The final step for your project will be to finish the dishcloth - cast off.

Experience level: Beginner

Materials you will need (we cannot provide these):

  • 1 ball of crafting cotton (Sudz is recommended)
  • 1 set of 5mm needles (wooden can be easier for beginners)

Your local arts & crafts, knitting & crochet stores should have these available. If you're in Toronto, we encourage you to order from our partner and the host's store, Spin Me a Yarn, for curbside pick-up or neighbourhood delivery.

About our Host:

Spin Me a Yarn is a local knitting shop in Etobicoke. "Crafting has been my comfort; my social base; my connection to home," writes founder Treena Evans. Come experience a bit of that social connection and comfort at this intimate online workshop series, led by the very capable Treena! 

Accessibility Level: Easy. This workshop can be accessed online through our Boomerang at Home online feature. This is a video conference experience that can be accessed via Mobile, iPad, and Computer devices.
