Shawls with Lori
This 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 all of my base done before time ran out.
This 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.
For the market bag, 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!
Saturday May 7
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.
Last Saturday many chose their patterns and their yarns but you can still sign up and join us. This is sort of a Knit A Long- so we will have lots of fun along the way.
Monday May 7-- 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
