Thursday March 8- 10:00 - 12:00 class with JoAnne
Last week we began our trek toward knitting up a REAL doily. We will be taking it in steps- first of all is a small doily type coaster. Knitting on small needles??- we can do it!!
Bring size 3 or 4 needles, both a 16" circular and double points. Also some stitch markers will be helpful. Yarn available at the shop.
And if thats too much for you- work the small cloth doily knit in Fantasy Naturale, as seen below.
Bring double points and a 16" circular needle size 3, 4 or 7, depending on which project you wish to do. This is going to be fun, and quite a learning experience. For this one you need a half ball of Fantasy Naturale, and size 7 needles- both a 16" circular and double points.
Stitch markers will be helpful. Yarn available at the shop as well.
If neither doily is to your liking- try knitting an entire Apartment building! For this one bring size 7 needles and a generous half ball of Fantasy Naturale ( that means over 50g). Yarn available in class as well.
Tuesday evening class with Lavanya-
6:30 - 8:30 pm
Join Lavanya to knit up a chula hat. Worked in the round, this hat will knit up in a flash on 16" circular needles size US 10. This hat will look really good in Taria Tweed. Just one hank will be needed.
Saturday March 3- babies need to be warm
Try your hand at a baby sweater or blanket
10:00 - 12:00 class with JoAnne
I want one more week of this class- I really encourage everyone to try one of these sweaters. These are 2 terrific patterns.
Knit up this really fun baby sweater. This is the one I knit, and I truely did enjoy the pattern. The pattern is sized all the way up to a finished 61" ( thats even too big for me) so we can truely say there is a size on this pattern for EVERYBODY!
|Baby and Bears Cardigan|
Now this is an absolute classic! On Saturday, I think I will start one of these myself. Since almost any weight yarn will do, I have a lot of choices. If you have any opinions- please help me to decide what yarn to do. This makes up into a newborn to 3 month size in a DK weight, or a 6- 12 month size in a worsted.
Even chunky can be used to produce a 24 size. Choices, choices...
|8 hour baby afghans|
Baby Blanket - There are over 20 patterns available for "8 hour baby afghans". Each blanket needs just 4 balls of Encore and a 24" circular size 13. They knit up fast!
MARILYN's Kids classes meet every 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month- 1:00 - 3:00 pm.
Next Kids classes- March 10and March 24.
Pat's Friday Afternoon Class
1:00 - 3:00 pm in January
Spud & Chloe
Ok Its time to make Chloe now!
Meet Chlo�. Her bright, shiny personality comes to life as you stitch her adorable blue jumper and red Mary Jane shoes, and create her gorgeous red ponytail. Chlo� is the type to make lemonade out of lemons every chance she gets. Her positive outlook is bound to rub off on her sheep Spud at some point.
REMEMBER: These projects are only suggestions- you can work on whatever you wish while in class
Friday Mornings & Afternoons with Debra
Beginning March 2!
Debra wants to teach everyone the Magic Loop technique while working on 2 socks at a time. This is a perfect project for Sockotta Limited, and we still have a little bit left- only $6.99 a ball.
You will need a 40" long needle in a size that works with your chosen yarn.
Pat's Saturday Classes- not only Socks!
Pat's Saturday morning AND afternoon classes want to work on a sampler baby afghan. This will start in January. You can choose the size and the squares to knit. Pat is planning on using either Snuggly Dk or Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK.
The March socks are coming!!
Pat's March socks are now complete. These look GREAT!! She calls them her shy shamrocks socks. The sock shines in a soft green color, with green beads and shamrocks adorning the cuffs. Pat is using K1C2's Pediwick sock yarn--a non wool yarn containing Bamboo and nylon- with plenty of stretch.
Eileen started working on her March socks this past weekend - she chose our newest sock yarn- Smooshy by Dream in Color. Eileen chose a lovely Blue Green handpaint shade for her own pair.
PAT AND EILEEN'S WEEKLY SOCK CLASSES ARE HELD ON SATURDAYS 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Wednesday afternoons with Eileen
Eileen's Wednesday afternoon class (4:00 - 6:00) has chosen to work on a sampler afghan themselves! Here is Eileen's first square- all finished. And here are some additional squares- some finished, some in progress.
