is not, despite how it sounds in the flyer, being taught by me, (Ellen Lewis). Nor did I learn to knit at one of their classes. I learned to knit 25 years ago in a beautiful little knitting shop in Charlottesville, VA while I was at college.
Regarding the class at the community college, I really don’t know anything about it, but I can tell you that our classes at Crazy for Ewe are fabulous! Our instructors are actual, award-winning knitting experts each with more than 20 years knitting experience. In our beginning knitting classes you will receive individual, personalized attention in the technical aspects of knitting. You will emerge from your beginning knitting classes at Crazy for Ewe not simply with the ability to make the stitches, but with an understanding of the fabric and how the stitches relate to one another. Our classes are taught in a warm, inspirational, shop setting, so you will be exposed to literally hundreds of different yarns with dozens of different fiber compositions at a wide variety price points. We have extremely affordable, durable, easy-care yarns as well as lavish luxury yarns for precious projects. We encourage you to to choose, not the most expensive, but the most appropriate and best quality yarn for your project. Your finished project represents a substantial amount of your time and effort – when it’s all said and done, you want something that reflects the best you have to give. When you purchase your yarns at Crazy for Ewe, you have access to our helpful and knowledgeable staff to ensure that you select the right yarn and needles for your project and to guide you through the knitting process. At Crazy for Ewe, we really care about you and your project.
