Knitique's New Class schedule is at the shop and classes are filling up fast. Some are already filled. I wanted to highlight a couple of awesome classes, where you will learn lots of skills which will improve your all around knitting skills.
The Einstein Jacket has been a very popular class. This jacket is designed by Sally Melville . One of the things I love about this jacket is the style of the jacket looks good on EVERY BODY TYPE. The only skills you need are cast on and knit. One of the cool techniques you will learn is a provisional cast on. This Class in on Saturday afternoon's January 27, February 10 & 24, March 10 1-3pm. This jacket can be made in a Child's size thru Adult XXXL.
Triangular Building Blocks Shawl
This is a great class to learn building blocks of color. Any self striping yarn will work well in this. Merino Stripes , Noro and Nashua Wooly Stripes. The small size took 8 Noro Silk Gardens. Beth said when she does it again, she will do the large size which should use 11 Silk Gardens or about 1300 yds. Beth will be teaching this class Saturday, February 3 and February 17, 2007 10:30am - 12:30am.
Mitered Felted Bag
Mitered Square Felted Bag is another great Felted Bag Class, you can use nearly solid yarns like Malabrigo, Manos del Uruguay or to really show off the pattern you can use self striping yarns like Noro's Silk Garden, Crystal Palace's Taos. Beth will be teaching this 2 part class on Saturday, February 24 and March 3, 2007 10:30am-12:30pm.
