Brioche Cowl: October 9th & 16th (6:30-8:00) - Class Cancelled

Brioche knitting is popular this season with many designers incorporating this technique into their patterns.  Come join us for two Wednesday evening classes for an introduction into brioche basics.  We will be knitting with a super chunky yarn to create a cozy, squishy, quick-knit cowl.

Cost $65.00 (Class includes yarn and pattern, does not include needles.)

 

 

Toe-Up Socks: October 19th & November 2nd (1:30-3:30) - 1 space remaining

This class will run for two Saturday afternoons.  Techniques taught during the two classes will be knitting on circular needles with a magic loop, the Turkish cast-on, kfb toe increase, creating the gusset, heel turn, and stretchy bind-off.  Be warned knitting socks is addictive.  

Cost $35.00 (Includes Pattern)

 

 

Two-Handed Stranding: October 20th (1:00-4:00) Class Full (Waiting List Started)

                                          November 17th (1:00-4:00) Class Full

Are you tired of your yarns getting all tangled up when doing stranded colorwork?  Do you fight to maintain proper tension while stranding?  Two-handed stranded colorwork eliminates these issues and adds a whole other dimension of enjoyment to a stranding project.  Once you become comfortable with this method you will never go back to one-handed stranding again.  During this Sunday afternoon class, we will be knitting the Aurora Borealis Cowl by Stacey Lewis. 

Cost 70.00  (Class includes yarn and pattern, does not include needles.)

Thrummed Slippers: November 24th (1:00-4:00) Class Full (Waiting List Started)

A thrum is a wisp of roving that is knit into your project every now and then to create a soft and cozy, super warm inner core.  Thrumming can be added to mittens, hats, socks, slippers, anything really; once you know how, the sky’s the limit.  In this Sunday afternoon class you will learn the art of thrumming; from making your thrums to knitting your thrums into your slippers.  We will be knitting the “Cadeautje” by Ysolda Teague.

"Really, all you need to become a good knitter are wool, needles, hands, and slightly below-average intelligence.  Of course, superior intelligence, such as yours and mine, is an advantage."
