      Oh- this reminded me- a few months ago I was at Michael's in Orland and their knitting teacher was demoing.  She was knitting this amazing, very fine lace tablecloth.  She's originally from Poland and she learned to knit there.  Anyway, she said the classes are open ended- you book it, show up, and she'll teach you whatever you want to know.
      But, you should come to our group first- between us we can probably teach you anything you need to know.  And we're free.

      Hi Kimberlee!

      Sounds like your a busy little bee! If you ever get a
      free Wed night, stop by Caribou with your
      "work-in-progress". The more the merrier! I just
      joined the group my self and I too am a self taught
      knitter. I've done your basic scarfs and
      blankets...now hoping to expand my talents. Besides
      your general hobby stores, there is Knitting ETC in
      Orland that has classes and a pretty good selection of
      yarn - the people there are very friendly.

      Hope to see a fellow knitter sometime.
