You wanted more Classes, we've got them!

We have many exciting classes starting this week.


Reversible Cabled Hat
Who doesn’t like a warm hand-knit hat? They are quick, fun, and have just enough details to keep you interested. This hat is reversible, so if you just happened to get something on the outside you can turn it around and have it nice and clean again. This hat is double thick, which is wonderful for those you love who live where it's cold, or for those who love the style, or cables on one side, another pattern on the other. It's a two for one hat. Learn all the basics of cabling in this quick project.

Need help on a project we've got 3 All Skills Classes this Week. Not only are you able to sign up for the entire month, but you can do a drop in class when you need more help on a project, then we can give you while the shop is open. The cost is only $20.00 for a two hour class. Make sure to call ahead to reserve your spot. Space is definitely limited.

All Skills Knitting Clinic
You know some of the basics and you want to learn more. Bring a project you need help with or start a project you don’t think you could handle on your own.

We postponed the Aran Afghan Square and this week it will be on Saturday, May 16th from 4-6.
Aran Afghan Square of the Month

Come join our new Block of the Month Club. What's that? Well, we are going to knit a Great American Aran Afghan (heirloom) with squares and in each square you will be learning a new type of cable stitch. Not only is this a very beautiful afghan, but it is something you will surely want to pass down to your family for generation after generation. It's getting too hot to knit an afghan! Not this one, as you will only be knitting a small square at a time. Very similar to making a quilt and yet every bit as nice. Make it out of any worsted weight. Many are using Berroco comfort, Cascade Superwash and I’m doing mine out of Mission Falls. We’ve worked out a deal that we can buy it by the cone, which will save in ends to be woven in. Come on in, pick your yarn, pick your color and get started on this heirloom project. We will be special ordering most of the yarn. It will take about a week to get the yarn in.

No matter what you are knitting or crocheting, we've got the perfect class for what you need. We hope to see you soon!

Love all your classes!

I am hoping you will do a class soon on that adorable striped angora beret that you showed me! S'il vous plait!

Definitely, I started it yesterday on the drive to Yosemite. It seems like it will be a fun class to learn the two color handwork also. I'll schedule something in June. Do you have a day preference?
