About the instructor: Instructor Denise Rowe
Denise Rowe has been knitting since grade three, when her teacher Mrs. Gray taught her to knit at lunchtime. She also doesn't ever remember a time when her grammies and her weren’t sitting by the fire knitting. She says she was always fascinated that she could make clothes herself! Denise has become more adventurous over the years, knitting baby sweaters, patterned scarves, etc. Plus, "It's hard to sit and watch tv now without having a project or three in my basket,” she says. "Hoping this workshop will inspire the knitter in you too!"
