Jacqui taught her first class on English Parlor Knitting, which is a knitting style with the right needle supported by the right thumb and positioned like a pencil. Andy sat in on the class and I popped over for a few minutes – long enough to realize that I was interested enough that I was neglecting some other work I should have been doing. Oops. The process-knitter part of me took over. Jacqui is going to be teaching more sessions on this method, so I’ll have to arrange my time so I’m free during one of them.
Jacqui is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and able to present this method in a step-by-step way that advances you through everything (such as hand positions and yarn tension). Even though I typically knit holding the yarn in my left hand (somewhat Continental style), learning to use my right hand in this method was not too difficult – but certainly needs some time to master. Practice makes perfect. I also firmly believe that learning something new and/or challenging will keep me young forever.
We would love to see you come in for a class or just drop in to work on your current project. Jacqui will be teaching this class again Wednesday May 15, 12:30 – 2:30 p.m. Click here to register online.
