The little ant at its hole is full of courage.

Like the ant, never say never. We have high hopes that you will make this a summer of "I think I can, I think I will" . 
Come give it a try. Whether it's your first sock or sweater, big needles, small needles, double points, Magic Loop, bottum-up, top-down, intarsia, colorwork, lace weight or bulky weight, Lopi or Alpaca, we will guide you through what you thought you couldn't.
