    Do you feel tentative when thinking about knitting a sweater?  Then this sweater class may be for you!  You'll be guided through the whole process of making a sweater from casting on to binding off.  Plus you'll learn to use simple tools to keep track of your progress so you know where you are and how to keep moving forward.  The Mailin is a top-down sweater knit in the round in worsted-weight yarn.  Instructor Sue Pearson is an accomplished knitter and has made dozens of sweaters.  She is excited to help you master the skill of knitting a sweater! Taking this class and making a sweater is a commitment, so we encourage you to read through the complete description, including homework.  Contact us if you have any questions at 207-869-5280 or

    Please be prepared for homework prior to the 1st class and between each class.  Homework before the first class is a gauge swatch knit in the round (see video). Instructions will be sent out before the start of class.
