Shawls with Lori
Next week Lori's Tuesday afternoon class will try their hands at a shawl. The Summerflies shown here is a proven classic- I can't rave about this pattern enough. So customizable- workable at several gauges, in many different yarns.
This is just a suggestion- but a really good one. Many other shawl ideas are available.
May 3- Thursday 1:00 - 3:00 pm
NEW Beginner crochet class with Amy
This past week Amy taught us to crochet up this market bag. Most chose either Covington as Amy and I both did, or Fantasy Naturale. 2 hanks did it. I loved the class, and got almost of my base done before time ran out.
Next week Amy will be continuing the market bag OR if you are finished- you can start her new project- an embellished towel for Spring. You can later add a crochet washcloth to the basket- which acts as a pocket.
You will need 2 hanks of Covington or Fantasy Naturale and a crochet hook -size H.
Please note... Amy encourages all to work on a crochet project of their own choice. The featured project of week is just a suggestion- but it is usually a fun one!

Class with JoAnne 10:00 - 12:00
We have decided that this spring is a good time to try our hands at a vest. I have found several possible patterns as shown here:
The Long vest is worsted weight and knit side to side- it goes up to about 55".
The Vaill Island Vest is also knit side to side with a worsted weight yarn but only goes up to about 45". It has simple shaping.
E024- Openwork Top
This is a one piece FAST knit using a worsted to chunky weight yarn. It goes up to about 55", BUT I can upsize it very easily. You can also make it longer or lengthen the sleeves easily. This pattern is extremely customizable.
Monday April 30-- 10:00 - 12:00 pm
Class with JoAnne (taking over for Jackie)
JoAnne will continue working on Jackie's Entrelac scarf next week- using either our new Ayatori or Silk Garden Lite. Bring size 6 needles.
We can continue the Entrelac scarf for a couple of weeks for those working on it.
I would also like to suggest we start a class project of a shawl. This is one of the only classes that has not done a shawl yet. We have ideas at all levels to expertise. Join me next Monday morning and lets see what we can do!
Thursdays 6:30 - 8:30 pm
