What you'll learn in this knitting class:

Let's relieve a lil stress, have fun and make a scarf! Learn a new skill and enjoy fellow creatives in this virtual knitting circle. All levels are welcome. No prior experience is necessary.

This online class will be provided via Zoom videoconferencing service. To participate, you will need a smartphone or computer with a microphone (or headphones) and a video camera.

This will be a live, interactive class where I will be able to assist you if you need help. We will all be able to see each other on video (picture "Brady Bunch" squares). 

Materials Needed to Fully Participate:

  • Three balls of medium weight yarn (colors that you enjoy together) or scraps tied together may be used to create more of an artsy patchwork look (You can buy them on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2KnVIAb)
  • Scissors
  • Number 17 sized knitting needles (https://www.amazon.com/Lion-Brand-Yarn-400-5-1701-Knitting/dp/B00067AGJW/ref=mp_s_a_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=Knitting+Needles+size+17&qid=1607487908&s=arts-crafts&sr=1-9)

About the Instructor:

I have been teaching art as well as crafts at a private art school for 6+ years and have been a professional artist since 2001. I have also earned my master teaching credentials from the state of CA. My style is intuitive and free flowing which leaves room for individual student creativity and flexibility. My classes are a fun way to learn new skills and develop the independent intuition needed to keep the creative process alive for years to come.


Virtual Class FAQ


What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.


Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!


Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Question from Lisa D.
Are you actually charging $40 for a single hour-and-a-half class that includes no materials and has potentially 20+ people in it so very little individual attention? Better off on YouTube.

Virtual Knitting 101
Reviewed by Lynette S. on 3/9/2021
Ginger Lou was very patient with us newbies! We learned a knitting scarf technique using size 17 needles and 3 strands of yarn. The two hours went by quickly & I have a new fun hobby to enjoy.

Ginger was very sweet and patient however she really didn’t teach much. She taught how to cast on in a very strange way. She also used 3 pieces of yarn at one time instead of one piece which made it a bit more difficult. Additionally, when Ginger was showing her knitting she was using fluffy/stringy yarn instead of basic, single color yarn and it was very difficult to see the individual stitches. Would have liked to learn purl stitch as well.
