Spiral Hat class
Thursday, August 20 at 11:00
. This hat is super cute and

Ready to master cables? Let's tackle them in a small project, a cabled coffee cozy. Joan will have you cable crazy in just one short hour! You choose either magic loop or DPNs. Bring your needles, size 6 and a cable needle (or purchase one from us). Class fee of $30 includes a ball of Boku yarn, plenty to make several cozies.
The Linen Stitch fascinates many of us. It looks like weaving, but is
actually a slip s
titch knitting technique. Using a variegated yarn
is the easiest way to achieve a confetti-like, multicolored cloth. The pattern will distribute the colors throughout the cloth, preventing pooling of color which often has a splotchy appearance.
Judy will teach you this technique in a wash cloth using cotton yarn and size 7 needles. $30 class fee includes yarn. Saturday, August 22nd, 1 to 3 pm.
