TKB Arm Knitting Classes

I learned to Arm Knit from Vickie Howell at Vogue Knitting Live NYC 2014. 
It’s quick.  It’s fun.   
All you need is one skein of yarn…that’s all.  And, you’ll walk out of this one hour class with a fashionable cowl. 

Bring a skein of super chunky yarn like Wool Ease Thick n Quick or Hometown. The cowl in the photo is made from Patons Cobbles.  Or maybe you have one of those skeins of the self ruffling yarn like Sashay or Starbella in your stash. It works up really well, too.  (I have a limited selection of appropriate yarn for sale in the studio.

The class is $10 per person, if you bring your own yarn.  $15 for the class and a skein of Wool Ease Thick n Quick.

Reserve your space by phone 973-303-3118 or email 
Kids 10 and up are welcome in the company of a parent/guardian. 

Check the calendar at the bottom of the home page for session dates and times.  If there are no sessions scheduled, ask to have one added.

The Knitting Bureau on Pinterest

The new Pinterest page for The Knitting Bureau is  I also converted my personal page and those pins can still be found on

New to Pinterest?  Not sure what it is for?  As I find patterns and projects that may be of interest to you, I "pin" them onto Pinterest boards I've created on my page.  This keeps a visual catalog for you to peruse.  If you like something, click on the pin.  At the top of the pin there's a button marked on that and it will bring you to the source.  

Ask, if you need a demo.
