We've heard countless horror stories from lefties trying to learn to knit. Fear no more! You CAN knit left handed!
Find a beautiful skein or two of yarn for a scarf, bring your needles and Jen will show you the way! This class will get you started on all the stitches you need to know, with plenty of time to practice and come up with questions in between. Ages 12 and up welcome. Supply list provided.

This is the event you have all been waiting for! In just a few short weeks — Saturday, April 30, to be exact — knitting royalty from around the country will be converging at Hopkins High School for a day of learning, fun, and stash enhancement. This is the MKG's 25th annual Yarnover, and for many members it kicks off the spring. The most difficult choice is which of the three- to six-hour classes to take. If workshops aren’t your thing, be sure to check out our ever-popular market, where wonderful goodies await your perusal.
