Don't Pull Wool Over Your Eyes With Knitting Classes
Knitting is making a comeback and for those who have been tempted to nestle down with some needles but don't know where to start, there's a class for you.

Pick Up Sticks is a beginners knitting class that takes place at Cherry Reds Cafe Bar in John Bright Centre, in the heart of Birmingham city centre.

The session is run by Stitches And Hos - a motley crew of knitting enthusiasts, who also love to crochet and stitch.

Sara Fowles, from Stitches And Hos, said all materials are provided along with a hot drink and a slice of cake.

Sara added: "This class is designed for those who are new to knitting or those who would like to reacquaint themselves with the basics. You will learn how to cast on (using the knit stitch method), knit stitch, purl stitch and casting off."

Pick Up Sticks costs 30 and the next classes are at Cherry Reds on March 1 and May 3.

You may have come across Stitches and Hos at festivals, galleries and other events as they have been around for nearly 10 years, encouraging needlework wherever they can.

Some of their projects include providing a Christmas jumper for the Bullring Bull statue and wrapping the columns outside Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to mark London 2012 Olympic Games.
