hi, i'm wondering if anyone has ever attended any good knitting classes around here.  i know the big craft stores (joann's, michaels) offer things like that but i don't know what they're like.  i used to knit when i was little (like 8 years old), my grandmother taught me.  yesterday i decided to pick up some new needles and give it a go again.  i can crochet pretty well, and since i'd done this before i expected to pick it up pretty quickly.  well let me tell you, i spent many many hours yesterday casting on, knitting a few rows, then ripping it out because something somewhere was going wrong.  i've searched the internet high and low and just can't find a solution to my problem. my poor grandmother's eyesight is going (she's 95 years old!) so she doesn't craft all that much anymore, but i'm hoping i can find someone to help me in person and show me where i'm going wrong.  thanks if you've read this far.... i guess, like i said, i'm just wondering if anyone knows of any good (preferably free, or cheap) knitting classes in the area.  thanks!!

when i was looking for a place that had knitting classes besides the usual big box stores i found a place called a yarn for all seasons (I think).  I remember it was 60 dollars, and it was a small shop. I never got the guts up to do it since I have never knitted before, but it seemed like a nice enough place.  I just moved here as well.  I found a link http://www.ayarnforallseasons.net/album1_003.htm

hope that helps
