To all my newbie knitters . . .

A few of you have reached out asking for advice on where to purchase yarn for our upcoming class. If you’re new to knitting, I recommend visiting a store to touch and feel the yarns. It will give you an idea of what you like for future purchases (online or in-store). Click “More” below for a quick & dirty list of my online and local faves:


Knitting for Newbies @ Caribou Baby

DSC00461Want to keep your little one warm and cozy? Come join us and learn to knit a snuggly blanket for your baby. In this course, you will learn the knit and purl stitches, how to cast on and bind off and how to block your blanket for a finished look. Your favorite pre-crawler is welcome and encouraged to join us during the lessons. It’s a playdate for them and a how-to for you!

Required materials:

  • Three to four skiens of a soft, wool blend yarn of your choosing (preferably around 100 grams in weight, 45 yards in length. I like Blue Sky Alpacas which you can purchase here). For a color block blanket, pick three to four different coordinating colors of yarn.
  • Straight or circular knitting needles in the size appropriate for your yarn and guage. For example, if using a 100 gram yarn use size 15 US needles. Recommend circular knitting needles with a 32″ or 36″ in length.
