HandCrafted in the Hills Class Description and Bio!

We received this Class Description from Daria Rawkoski, our Beginning Knitting Teacher:

Beginning knitting: In this 2 hour class you will learn three key elements to basic knitting - casting on, knit and purl. Instruction will primarily be in continental style knitting but we will also discuss/engage in English style knitting as well. Class time is limited so we'll focus on these basics.  

 Supplies: yarn will be supplied, please bring a pair of straight knitting needles, 4mm/US6 preferred but anything up to 5mm/US8 will work fine.

Daria's Bio:  Daria grew up in a fiber-heavy environment. Surrounded by talented fiber-artists, her youth was marked by ready availability to dreamy yarn and a variety of skilled teachers and mentors. Her mom taught Daria how to crochet when she was 5. Her grandmother watched with approval and feeling her ready, sat down and taught her to knit (at the beach!) at the tender age of 7. After a brief hiatus during grammar school, Daria came back to strings and has been making things ever since. Now her passion has extended to creating unique hand dyed yarns and designs in addition to her continuing addiction to knitting.
