Attention All Knitters! Have you ever wanted to knit a classic Fisherman’s sweater, but were intimidated by the amount of cable involved? The answer is to design and knit your own Gansey sweater!
Kathleen England, of Glenfiddich Wool, will teach you how to design and create your own Gansey sweater in this class. If you can knit and purl, you can make a Gansey! Kathleen England is a sheep farmer, business owner, and world-class knitter. She has demonstrated her knitting (and spinning) skills at numerous schools, universities, and community events. She has taught knitting classes for all different levels of knitters and has competed at the PA Farm Show and numerous knitting competitions. Kathleen’s knitting designs have been featured several times in the Love of Knitting magazine, including two bridal gowns!
The first class is scheduled for Wednesday, October 26th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the Potter County Education Council’s Coudersport office. The class will also meet once in November and once in December. To ensure a quality finished product, your yarn must be purchased from the instructor at the first class. Two different, reasonably priced yarns will be available for purchase.
You will need to bring with you two sets of circular knitting needles, Size 8 and Size 10. The cost of this three-part class is $30 (plus the cost of yarn). Time is short and space is limited, so register today at www.pottercountyedcouncil.org or call (814) 274-4877.
