Summer classes.

We have a handful of new classes scheduled for the coming months, all centered around projects you may have seen around the shop lately:

  • Have you seen the newest issue of Vogue Knitting magazine? Katherine is teaching a class on the cover project, a cabled capelet. If you're interested in learning to cable and to knit in the round, this may be the class for you. 
  • Have you seen the ruffled scarf hanging from the lamp by the desk? Christy's Ruffle Scarf class was a hit, so we're offering it again. It was neat to see all the different combinations of yarn that her students chose, with fibers ranging from cotton to wool to silk to angora, and weights ranging from lace to dk to bulky. Some self-striping, some solid, some variegated, some tweedy. The ruffle scarf is endlessly variable. If you've learned to knit and you're ready to move on from your first garter stitch scarf, this may be the class for you.

  • Have you seen the two baby cardigans hanging in the shop window? Christy's version might be even cuter. If you're eager to figure out the basics of sweater knitting before you take on an adult-sized sweater, let Christy walk you through this baby cardigan in a two-part class beginning in late August.
  • Have you seen a pink and purple hat hanging out by the Katia Fabula? Learn to make one yourself, with Christy as your teacher. If you'd like to learn to knit in the round and construct a basic hat with a ribbed brim, this may be the class for you.
If any of these classes appeal to you, read more about them and register on our website. Look out for a new class from Marion in the coming week, as well! She's putting the finishing touches on an original mitten pattern which is sure to make for a fun and informative class.
