End of a season (almost), beginning of a new (soon)

My First Sweater AKA Knitting 103

My First Sweater AKA Knitting 103

While the winter marches on, we are working up a new schedule for spring with project classes and workshops for knitting, crochet and needlework. Knitters will especially like the lacey adult cardigan and short sleeved tee, both to wear this spring/summer. To make for children, a pullover, toys, a blanket, and more. We have a list of technique workshops to work into the schedule, too. And, of course, we will be running beginner courses pretty much non-stop. The new schedule of classes will be ready in time to hand out at the Yarn Crawl (see previous post) March 19-22.

But in the meantime, we have a few more classes to see us through the end of winter. (When I remember how to include pictures, I’ll post them, too.)

The My First Sweater class, evening series, starts Wednesday, March 4. This is for people who have graduated from Knit 102, or have these skills, and want to move on from scarves and hats. Top down sweaters are the easiest, and we are going to make a simple straight-forward little pullover using a DK weight yarn. The small size means students can learn the techniques AND get their homework done. 4 classes, Wednesdays, 3/4, 11, 25 and 4/1 (skips 3/18), 6:30-8:30pm. $85.

Intro to Colorwork: Cup Cozy starts Saturday, March 7. Amy’s clever little project, knitted flat, will give intermediate knitters an introduction to slip-stitch, fair isle and intarsia. Our kit includes DK weight wool in the 3 colors Amy used for the sample, plus her original pattern. Saturdays, 3/7 and 14, 1-3 pm, $50.

For more info, or to sign up, please stop by the shop or give us call. (Still working on the new system…)

Hope to see you soon!
