Class List - October 2015

GREAT AMERICAN ARAN AFGHAN

This beautiful afghan is knit in squares using different stitch patterns, all designed by the readers of Knitter's magazine.  The pattern includes 24 squares of which we'll make 20 for an afghan.  We'll work one square each month and discuss all the techniques involved in completing that square.  You'll perfect your knitting skills and create this heirloom afghan.  Since you'll want your squares to be knit from the same dye lot you'll want purchase your yarn before the class starts, if possible. This project has been going for a year now for many people. I, personally, have enjoyed making it and feel excited to start each new square.  Every one has provided me a learning experience for myself and to pass on. There is space available in these classes if you want to jump in.  Stop in to talk to me to see if this is right for you.
You will receive a 15% discount on your yarn when you order the required amount.

BEGINNER SOCK CLASS

I'm so excited to have my beloved Jaya back at the shop to teach.  She's a busy girl now but has set aside three dates to give you the skills you'll need to start making socks.  Some people find sock knitting the most calming and rewarding part of their knitting experience.  Using a basic sock pattern, you will learn classic knitting techniques and tips to both avoid common pitfalls and how create a perfect fit. You can learn to knit on double point needles, 2 circulars or magic loop. For magic loop, please get at least a 40" circular. Swatch in stockinette and bring the right size needles for the gauge in the pattern.

Materials: pattern, yarn (should be wound and used in swatch before class), needles (as appropriate based on choice of technique above), typical accessories

Dates/Times: Saturdays, October 3, October 24, and November 21, 9:00 - 12:00
