Bex Infinite Eternity Cowl

Class:  June 11
Time:  11am -2pm
Cost:   $30



You've seen all the "eternity" scarves out there? Here's a light weight, year round scarf with a new slant, Bex' Infinite Eternity Cowl. Along with the half-twist of a m�bius to create a scarf with seemingly no beginning or end, Bex has added her signature Double Knit "infinity" design. Learn how to do a Two-color M�bius Cast-on AND how to do Double Knitting...
All in one 3-hour class! This is a class for adventurous intermediate knitters. Some experience (at least understanding) with either m�bius or double knitting would be helpful, but give it a try if you can knit and purl proficiently!
 
Materials:
Bamboo Pop Yarn  1 skein each of two colors ( in stock at HYS)
Needles  Size 5  40 inch Circular
Stitch Markers of two different colors
Basic Knitting Tools

WE still have a few spots left!!  Please don't wait until the last minute.
Remember to bring all your old sock yarn.  If you want to wind it into 50 gram balls in advance that would move things along.  You can come in the shop to wind anytime you wish.  The staff will show you how to run the equipment.
 
Please call or drop by the shop to register.











Notes from Karen
 
We have a shipment Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock yarn that just arrived.  It is going fast so hurry in for your colorful skein.
I know you are all aware that the transition of the shop to a new owner is coming soon.  Bex has agreed to host a class, June 11,  to teach her original mobius double knitted cowl made with Bamboo Pop Yarn, one of our favorites from Universal Yarns.  Please sign up to learn a new technique and get to know the new shop owner.
Summer is a great time to knit when entertaining in your backyard or in the park.  I have included some ideas for quick projects.
 
Happy Knitting!
Karen
