This week in classes...

Lace Logic:  Yarnover?  SSK?  What? 
Saturday, 2/20 from 11am-1:30pm 
$35 per student, ages 16+.  Adventurous knitter.  
Learn to read and knit from a chart with this elegant, but simple lace scarf (“Gust”, by Knitspot).  We’ll learn the logic of lace, how to make a wise yarn choice, and all about the miracle of blocking lace.  *Additional items not included in the course price: “Gust” pattern by Knitspot (available at our store), 300 yards of laceweight yarn, and US 4 needles (preferably sharp tipped), tapestry needle. needles, tapestry needle. 

Knitting 102:  Knitting in Circles: Circulars and DPNs 
Saturday, 2/20 from 2-4pm 
$40 per student, ages 12+. Beginners ready to move beyond scarves.  
Ok, I can make a scarf.  What’s next? Which end of the circular needle is my ‘left’ needle? What am I supposed to do with 5 double-pointed needles? And what’s that Magic Loop I’ve heard about?  In this class, students will make a small hat as they learn how to knit in the round. We’ll start using a circular needle for the bottom, and move to a set of DPNs for the crown. The Magic Loop technique will be demonstrated but is not necessary to learn in order to knit the hat.  *Additional items not included in the class price: Bulky weight wool or wool-blend yarn is recommended, preferably in a light color. Aim for 3 to 5 stitches per inch. A circular needle, 16” long, in a size appropriate to your yarn. A set of DPN needles (4 or 5 in the set) in size appropriate to your yarn. 

Sorry, Sewing 101 on Sunday, 2/21 is full!
