      I’d like to take the Under the Midnight Cowl class please? Could you put me down for that one and I’ll call in tomorrow with my credit card. Sharon King

      Also, my daughter is 10 and knows how to knit but not purl or anything else, I think she would benefit from the Learn to Knit class still. Is it okay if she can knit or it is very basic?

      Thanks,
      Sharon

    Hello girls;

  5. Barbara Mancina

    Hi Lisa and Melissa,
    Just wanting ti chime in with Anne Leclair, I would be interested in an intermediate crochet course if you guys ever planned one. Crochet 101 was a lot of fun.
    Also wondering if in future you might consider intermediate level lace or colour work courses? Or possibly, knit-a-long type courses with intermediate level projects, such as with the sock course. I really appreciated the courses I did take with Mona.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    • espacetricot – Author

      Hi Barbara – thanks for your comments! Not sure about an intermediate level crochet course at this time as instructors are difficult to come by and Virginia has her hands full with the Crochet 101 courses at the moment. We have been thinking about introducing some knit-along type courses though – I’ll keep you posted as soon as we firm up plans!

  6. naila

    Would it be possible to find when you will be offering the next Tricot 101 class will be given?

    Thanks!

      Hi Annie – there won’t be any classes scheduled until September now although we always have instructors available for private sessions. Just give us a ring and we’ll give you some contact numbers!
