Learn to knit - 4 week course

This series of four, two-hour classes is designed for those who are completely new to knitting as well as those returning to the craft and who want to re-familiarise themselves with the basics.

During our time together, we'll cover the techniques needed to complete your own beautiful blanket or cushion cover.

We’ll learn how to cast on and off, knit and purl, change colour and stitch pattern, and seamlessly join together our panels (using mattress stitch).

The cost includes all materials (yarn, needles and project bag), your pattern, notes and tuition - so you just need to bring yourself!

on 17 June 2017.

Blue moon at kathys Knits


Come and sample the amazing yarns and other items from Lindsay Roberts, aka The Border Tart at The Indie Burgh Craft Crawl on 17 June at Kathy’s Knits.

Lindsay uses natural indigo to dye a wide range of natural fibre yarns used by knitters, crocheters and weavers. Some she overdyes with acid dyes to produce a range of  complementary shades.

She also indigo dyes wool locks, vintage blanket pieces, pre-felt, silk hankies and wool batts for textile makers. Sari silk offcuts and buttons galore are also BorderTart staples.
