Image via WikipediaAnother list from my JDF Recreation knitting classes – I hate to set my beginner knitters free without some support. The first week of class I give them links to videos, how-to websites in case they need some extra help until the next class. But, when we are nearing the end of classes, of course I encourage them to join a weekly Stitch N Bitch or the like!
So, I give you the ‘current as of January 2011’ list of knitting groups in Victoria, BC – note these groups keep moving around, not all are listed in one single place…so I will have to keep updating this list! As I always advise the beginners, ‘call to confirm/don’t make a special trip’ just in case the group folded/moved.
