This course is perfectly suitable for beginning knitters.

Kate Oates is a knitting pattern designer and author of several books: grown, knits for boys and knitting clothes kids love. Under her own name, she creates a line of modern and stylish knits for adults. Her other line, tot toppers, features whimsically wearable garments and accessories for babies and children. Kate also strives to add specifically to the growing body of knits for boys as she has four of her own! You can find her patterns at your local yarn store or online. She also does freelance work for a variety of publications and yarn companies. In her non-knitting life, Kate holds a PhD in political science from the University of Florida. She lives with her family in South Carolina.

We know that some folks will want to travel from out of town for both of these workshops. We are more than happy to assist if you need recommendations for lodging or would like to be paired up with another student in a hotel or Airbnb, or if you need help with finding restaurants that work for various dietary needs! Feel free to email us with questions. We love our little town and we know it forwards and backwards!
