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. The cost of this "class" is $25.
Socks are really fun to knit.
These stockings are 50+ years old
Start your Christmas Early
You might think that Christmas starts early enough already. That being said - how about starting in August? Christmas stockings are a favorite for children of all ages. What better than a personalized stocking for the special people on your list. Stockings can be made with traditional knitting by adding stripes of color and various patterns. They can also be made using intarsia which is the process of knitting with more than one color. Susan has been working on beginner classes of intarsia which will be helpful for this Christmas stocking. Homework will be required before classes start on August 2. We will start the class with knitting-in that special someone's name from 12 - 2. On August 9 we will starting the charted pattern of your choice from 12 to 3. On August 23 (12 - 2) we will start the heel of your stocking and finish up on September 6 (12 - 2) with the toe.
Please call the shop for further details. This is a great class but we need to warn you that many of your friends and family will want one of these stockings.
We have had so much interest in crochet that it seems a good idea to do more than just teach the stitches. We need a project and this scarf should fit the bill. In the past we have just taught the stitches. Now we will put them to use. This class will meet for two sessions of two hours each. This should give everyone a chance to get comfortable with this very popular needle art.
Susan's Easy Scarf
This class just keeps improving as we try new and simpler methods of working with two circular needles. We still believe that the best fitting sock is made with a “flap” heel and a gusset.
This darling little baby doll is not difficult to make and she can have a whole wardrobe knitted with your bits of left- over yarn. We have a pattern in the shop that can be modified as you desire. There is a sample in the shop.
Broom Stick Stitch Scarf:
Just try to say the title of this class really fast. It is easier to learn how to make this scarf. This is a wonderful open pattern for a quick light scarf. Class will meet for 2 hours. This class will meet only once. We know you cannot finish it that quickly and there will be ongoing support for you until your project is completed.
Do it yourself scarf pattern:
You can make your own scarf using patterns that you like. We have a silk scarf in the shop that was designed to highlight the beautiful yarn used. First we will make a small patch to see what needle size will work with your yarn and what patterns you like best. We will decide how to make the scarf during class and get you started.
This bag is made from recycled cotton tape imported from Holland. It is quick, easy and a perfect “green” gift for the holidays. We have samples in the shop. Please let us know as soon as possible which color you prefer so that we have plenty in stock. The colors come in green, blue, beige and yellow.
