Baby Sweater with Lori
This week Lori started a new baby sweater- this is a multidirectional garment- with a one piece construction. There's a lot of learning here! This will be fun.
You will need worsted weight yarn- (200g) and size 7 or 8 needles. The sweater as shown will fit 3-6 months.
Lori is starting a second baby sweater- this time using Classic Worsted Tapestry.
This yarn has distinct stipes, like the Classic Worsted LP, with a bit of fair Isle look in between. 2 balls is all that you will need.
Saturday 10:00 - 12:00 with JoAnne
Everyone just adores the Linen Stitch Scarf knit in Koigu. We have come up with a fast way for you to learn to work the Linen Stitch with ease- by making a bookmark! In my 2 classes this week- you can knit up this project while gaining the expertise to do the scarf. Bring about 10g of a sock yarn- or use one of our 10g balls for only $1.00 ( while they last).
Dottie's Linen Stitch Scarf is so pretty, it has enticed so many people to try it! Now try a bookmark first to learn the method.
April 19- Thursday 1:00 - 3:00 pm
NEW Beginner crochet class with Amy
Next week Amy will be working on a felted coaster crocheted out of 3 colors of Galway. It is beautiful even before felting!
Bring some Galway if you have some, but we do have kits available- containing 3 colors for a low price. Bring size K hook.
This is one of the fastest growing classes we have. Amy is terrific and she is showing how much fun crochet can be!
ALSO- please note... Amy encourages all to work on a crochet project of their own choice. The featured project of week is just a suggestion- and its usually a fun one too.
Wednesdays with Linda Miller
10:00 - 12:00 and 1:00 - 3:00
|Scarf on Mary|
This week Linda started to teach a new sideways scarf/cowl knit in Feather & Fan.
She knit this cowl in our new Ayatori by Noro. The soft hand and springlike colors make for a great warm weather cowl. For a more Fall look, you can work this cowl in the new Silk Garden Lite. Bring a 24" circular size 5 or 6.
|Scarf on Model|
The scarf here is knit in several colors. Our Ayatori version is knit in one colorway.
Monday April 16-- 10:00 - 12:00 pm
Class with Jackie
Jackie will continue working on an Entrelac scarf next week- using either our new Ayatori or Silk Garden Lite. Bring size 6 needles.
Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30 pm Continuing April 19
We have started a men's class! Joe- a local knitter, Pints & Purls attendee, and raveler has agreed to lead the class. So calling all men- whether you are a knitter or a crochetter- please give this new group a try. Please call to sign up. Bring any current project, and we will see where we go from there.
NOTE from Joe:
Joe would really like to do a group project. His idea is to try felted house slippers (big felted socks). These can easy for those who are beginners, or embellished with cables or Fair Isle to challenge those who are more advanced knitters.
Friday Mornings & Afternoons with Debra
Continuing April 13!
Debra is teaching everyone the Magic Loop technique while working on 2 socks at a time. Any sock yarn will do!!
You will need a 40" long needle in a size that works with your chosen yarn.
In mid April, Debra will be starting toe up socks using Magic Loop!!
April socks are here!
Pat's April Socks are knit using our new Koigu along with a solid sock yarn. Eileen's April socks are knit out of Koigu as well: take a look!
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 latest square- not blocked yet, so Eileen and I are holding it out flat; but you can tell how lovely it is. Below see some of her other squares. This is a great long term project- join in anytime.
New classes just keep on coming!
