Kate McGuire, Instructor

Kate McGuire is the yearbook adviser and Ezine teacher at LASA. She loves anything crafty and has been sewing clothes and knitting pieces since she was 7. She enjoys knitting hats/scarves/blankets for friends but has also sold a few items on Etsy in the past. She hopes to find enough time this winter break to knit her first sweater.

DESCRIPTION

Beginner course on knitting. Students will learn how to cast on, the knit stitch and how to cast off. By the end, students will be able to create a simple potholder or scarf. For those more intermediate, we can review how to create a slouchy hat and poofball and learn the pearl stitch.
