Gardner Village Blog Warm Up Your Creativity with Crochet and Knitting Classes
Wednesday Feb 27 2019

Old Man Winter, you sure are putting the “old” in your name. Enough with your frigid days and wind-filled ways. It’s about this time of year that we become VERY ready for spring. Of course, being in Utah, it’s nearly impossible to know if winter’s end is around the corner or will find us in June. Fortunately, Willow Hill Yarn Co. has the trick for beating the winter blues and staying warm in the process—crochet and knitting classes.

Come learn something new. Nothing fills that cup o’ cheer quite like creative time with friends. Plus, depending on the class you take, you’ll walk away with something warm, cozy, and stylish to wear.

Here are just a few of the current classes available at Willow Hill: 


Beginner Knitted Socks

“Once you wear hand-knitted socks, you’ll never want to wear store-bought again.” Just the other day, I had a friend tell me this, and I must admit, I’m intrigued. If you, too, want to know what such foot luxury feels like, now’s your chance. You’ll learn to turn your heal, knit the gusset, and finish the toe!
