CLASSES Learn to knit classes are taught to very small groups or on an individual basis all year long. Instruction is offered when the shop is less busy and you have time to practice what is being taught. When you have graduated you will know how to cast on, knit and purl and bind off. The cost of this "class" is $25. Please call the shop (407) 767-5648.

These stockings are sure to be prized in the years to come. You will have time to finish for the holidays while learning to knit with 2 colors, turn a heel and use the Kitchener bind-off. There will be some homework for this class so please call the shop to discuss supplies you will need.

We will be making a cocheted toy and learn several techniques along the way. Magic loop, chain and single cochet, increases and decreases will be explained. We will provide stuffing, eyes and stitch marker. This is a great class for those who want to understand the mysteries of crochet. $30.00
There will be two classes either Saturday October 13th or Saturday, November 10th from 2:00 to 4:00.
Wendy will help all class participants with supplies at the beginning of the class but if you have H or I crochet hooks, please bring them with you.
Basic Crochet Ghost?
Patchwork Shawl ($25) Saturday, November 10th 10 – 12
This is just plain fun made with leftover yarn. You will need yarn of approximately the same size and an appropriate needle. We have a sample in the shop. The squares are made separately but are joined from picked up stitches. Bring your yarn and appropriate sized knitting needles. The sample in the shop was made with size 4 needles and sock weight yarn. You can get started in just a few minutes so we will look forward to finishing one square on the first day of class and joining the second.
Summer Tweed Top Down V-Neck
Saturday, October 20th and Saturday November 3rd, 10 - 12
This pattern looks deceptively simple but is really difficult to interpret. The pattern is free on Ravelry. The class will attempt to assist everyone with the sizing of the pattern and the best way to read the pattern. The sample in the store was worked with Trailhead Yarns Fundy Tides - doubled but you can use whatever yarn you like. I needed three balls of the yarn to finish the sample in the store but have most of one ball left over. I recommend you purchase three skeins but wind only two until you determine your yardage needs. Needle size will vary according to your knitting. You will need a gauge of about 16 sts and 23 rows for 4 inches. Trailhead Yarns is new to our store and is a combination of linen and cotton and dyed using only vegetable dyes. It is a yarn for everyone.
One class should be plenty for everyone but we will offer two different sessions so that if you come for the first class and get lost, we will be there a second time.
