  • Saturday, May 3rd at 2pm- TWO socks on ONE circular needle PART 1. I'm looking forward to this class because I absolutely love knitting socks on magic loop. And as most of you know, I have serious issues with completing the second sock. Imagine that. I can finish both socks at the same time using magic loop! Whoohoo! This is for intermediate knitters and space is limited to 8 students. Part 2 for this class is on Saturday, May 24th at 2. Cost $50 **Receive 10% off class materials at the time of class sign-up.

  • Sunday, May 4th at 1pm- 3pm- Slip-Stitch Knitting Class Level: Advanced Beginner 1, 2-hour session Are you intimidated by Intarsia and Fair Isle or don't want the challenge of carrying more than one yarn at a time - then this is the class for you. Slip Stitch knitting is the simplest form of working in color yet it gives the allusion of complexity. This technique also uses less yarn and is easier to knit than fair isle and is just as sturdy yet easier than the linen stitch. We learn to slip stitch both in the round and in the flat as well as practice several slip stitch graphs. It's an addicting technique and a great way to use up stash yarn as well. The perfect summer take along project! Supplies: Slip Stich purse pattern (LEDA-15) needles according to pattern yarn according to pattern. Cost: $25.

That's all for now. I'm off to plan festivities for our One Year! :-)
God bless you!

This is one of the most intriguing projects and yarns I've ever seen as the yarn does the color changes so you don't have to. NICE. This sweater is made from ONE colorway from Kauni.

I plan to place an order for more Kauni soon. To get precisely the color way you'd prefer let me know sooner than later and I'll hook you up.
