You will need to purchase 2 balls of yarn and there will be homework.
For those who cannot attend the Thursday classes- we would love for you to join us in spirit. The pattern is free to all those willing to donate their baby sweater to our cause- Nurse Family Partnership. Just ask.
For this week- August 23, we will be learning to sew in the sleeves and sew up the side seams. Please bring a metal seaming needle.

Crochet Angels & Snowflakes with Anne
Anne has agreed to continue teaching a crochet class-once a month- on the 2nd Tuesday of every month- through the end of the year. Although she will focus on Thread crochet- worked with a size 6 Steel crochet hook, we can venture into other crochet areas.

Its time to try some thread crochet with Anne. The ultimate project is the angel, but we will start with the snowflake. Patterns will be provided as well as the ring for the angel's head and the ribbon for around the angel's neck. You will need 1 ball of Cebelia crochet cotton and a size 5 or 6 steel crochet hook. Beginner and intermediate crochetters encouraged to attend.
Thursdays in September
JoAnne's Washcloth class becomes a shawl class
We have so much fun making shawls occasionally in this Thursday morning class- so we are going to start another.
The Sleeveheart shawl will teach us a couple of new stitches- definitely a new cast on.
This shawlette would look wonderful in either Silky Wool or Manos Silk Blend.
For a change of pace- maybe try our new Acadia- oh what a lovely tweedy look that will yield!

Jans entire class has chosen to make our Warm Hands Warm Gifts Project #1- the Kogarashi Shrug. This is knit on size 13 needles with 2 hanks of Kogarashi- a wool/ silk blend which is on sale at 30% off!
