Class List - Summer 2016 (August update)

Fair Isle Christmas Stocking 
I have made and gave this stocking several times and each time I have been thrilled with the result. It's rather large so last year I modified the pattern a bit and found the perfect size.  We will make the modified version (unless you're feeling like you need to fill a giant stocking).  As long as you can knit and purl comfortably, I'll teach you the rest.  You'll learn how to work in the round using dpns or magic loop, basic sock construction, optional chart reading, stranded knitting for the fair isle designs, duplicate stitch for the name, and much more.  
 
Check out the basic design here and I will get a complete stocking for display at the shop.   
DATES/TIMES:  Saturdays, 9:00 - 10:00, Sept. 10, Oct. 1, Oct. 22, and Nov. 12
PRICE: $40 
 
Cabled Cap/Cowl 
This super cozy, super cute project works up super fast!  It will make a great gift for yourself or someone on your list that will love the versatility, warmth, and design of this accessory that can tie up tightly into a cozy hat or loosen up into drapey, warm cowl.  Bring your ability to knit and purl and I'll teach you how to work in the round using magic loop or basic circulars, make basic cables and traveling cables, optional chart reading, make an i-cord, and much more.  This is a shop pattern so stop by to see the sample.
 
DATES/TIMES:  Saturdays, 10:00 - 11:00, Sept. 10, 17, and 24.
PRICE: $30
 
FRIDAY MORNING SWEATER CLUB (new)
Beginning June 27, we'll continue our Friday morning sweater club with a brand new sweater.  This time we're going to make a fabulous summer hoodie with cables and lace!  I knew as soon as I opened the Early Spring Vogue that it had to be mine.  Check out the Cable and Lace Duster, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/16-cable--lace-duster   It'll be fast and fun and you'll get lots of practice with cables and yarn overs (hopefully, not too much picking up dropped Y/O's). Come when you can to learn something new and make this must have summer hoodlie. You my jump into this class at any time. 
Dates/Times: Fridays, 9:00 - 10:00, beginning June 27.
PRICE: $10 per week
 

CHIX WITH STIX
This series of classes started at Yarn Central and has been continued here at Out of the Loop.  You'll work on your own project and learn at your own pace with inspiration from your classmates, who come with different levels of experience.  Some of the classes have a mix of knitters and crocheters.  We have had so much fun with these classes that some have been together for as long as eight years. Come with a project that requires a little help and you'll find much more than instruction in these groups.  You choose a day and time that works for you, purchase classes in groups of 4 for $30 and keep coming for as long as you can.
