Sign up for Winter Classes - preview some items here!

We had our winter class schedule ready in the middle of December, and we have some cool things to show you, if you still haven't taken the plunge and signed up.

Suzie finished her first mitten for the Fair Isle Mittens Knitting Class, and here it is in four great colors of Frog Tree Alpaca. This mitten is great - everyone here in the shop loves it! It is so cute and fits so well. I just love the Frog Tree Alpaca - so soft, warm and wonderful to knit with. Reasonably priced, and an amazing color section. What's not to love? Anyway, this class - as of today - has just a couple more spaces available.

And Barb finished her hat for the Learn to Love Entrelac Hat class. Again, what's not to love with this hat? She chose the Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran yarn, which is just heavenly to knit with, and when I put this hat on my head this morning, I immediately put this on my "to knit" list. It's awesome!! Now this class has only ONE SPOT left as of today, and I'm sure that will be filled quickly.

Also - for those of you who are already signed up for this class but who have not yet purchased your yarns... we will have several wonderful New yarns in stOck befoRe this class starts that are perfect fOr this hat, in terms of offering a really cool color transition.... (if you're smart - I left you some clues.)

Barb also finished her scarf for the Tunisian Crochet Scarf class on Feb 17th. It's simply stunning! The pattern is easy, yet beautiful. Tunisian crochet is my favorite kind of crochet - it's more like knitting, actually. Barb chose the Manos Silk Blend Multi in color 3113: Wildflowers. It is so pretty. A gorgeous pattern for a gorgeous yarn. This will be a fun class for sure, and once you learn the technique, you'll be finished in no time.

And for any of you who know someone who wants to learn to knit, we do still have a spot or two open in our January 24th Learn to Knit class from 9am-12noon.
