Class #2

Open Studio For Experienced Knitters

Arnhild Hillesland

May 5 - May 11


instructor imageDo you often find yourself wishing you had more time to work on your UFOs (Unfinished Objects) or to start on that special project you've been thinking about for a long time? If yes, and if you are an experienced knitter who is able to work independently, then this is the class for you.

During the week you can choose to tackle your UFOs, getting help from Arnhild and other knitters to solve the problems that are keeping you from finishing those projects. Or you can get started on something new.

Prerequisites for this class are being able to cast on and bind off, knit and purl and increase and decrease.

Arnhild Hillesland is a native of Norway and has been knitting as long as she can remember. As a young adult she taught folk dancing, and both taught and performed in many countries. After earning a Ph.D. in Norwegian language at the University of Tromsø in Norway, the northernmost university in the world, she taught, and eventually became Vice Principal at a middle school near Lillehammer, Norway. She moved to Ames, Iowa in 1986. Since Norwegian language teaching positions were not available in Ames, she turned her hobby—knitting—into her full-time job. Arnhild has owned a yarn shop and wholesale yarn business and has taught knitting all over the United States. Arnhild retired from the yarn business, and now spends more time “just” knitting, along with designing and translating knitting patterns.

Arnhild will contact students prior to class.
