In between exhibiting at Stitches (what a fun weekend!) and unpacking new spring yarns (have you seen the new organic cotton from Rowan, PureLife?), we’ve been busy planning new classes. Here are two new classes and some updates on new sessions of our most popular offerings.
Cabled Vest with Julie
Back in January, we had a number of customers who took Melissa Leapman’s cable workshops. You might be wondering “Now that I know how to cable, what can I do with them?” We have a new class that will put those skills to great use. Instructor Julie Montanari will be teaching a Cabled Vest class beginning Monday, March 31st, 5 -7 pm. It runs for 5 sessions ($120 plus materials), and it will cover a lot of cabling options as well as garment construction and finishing. It’s a great opportunity to learn to knit this versatile project and learn some new skills.
Here are the dates: Mondays, March 31st, April 7th, 14th, 28th, and May 12th, 5 -7 pm
Fair Isle Fingerless Mitts with Linda
Linda’s Fair Isle Bag class has been one of ourmost popular. We’re now offering a new Fair Isle class that is perfect for those who are new to this technique as well as more experienced knitters. It uses two colors of sock yarn – one is a solid and one is a variegated. This 3-session class ispacked with techniques that you will be able to use on many future projects. Not only that, you can create unique mitts and bust some of your sock stash at the same time!
This class is offered on three consecutive Sundays for $75. March 22nd, 29th, April 5th, 10 am – 12 pm
