We have the Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts
special issue in the shop. (Note: If you subscribe to IK, this issue will not
be arriving in your mailbox as part of your regular subscription.)
I want to tell you about our fall classes, too, so I'll intersperse some photos of my favorite designs from the magazine to keep things interesting.
Need to learn (or relearn) the basics? We have options. If Thursday nights are good for you, Adrienne's Knitting: Beginning and Beyond
series is fabulous. In three two-hour classes, Adrienne will have you knitting, purling, working in the round, decreasing, and increasing. If you already know these basics, bring along whatever you want to try next and Adrienne will help you tackle your newest challenge.
We also have our two hour Learn to Knit Workshop
with Ann on Tuesday night. We have scheduled these once each month, so you can sign up whenever works for you. Ann will help you learn as much as you can in two hours. You'll walk away with the skills to get started on your first project!
Ann is also teaching a Learn to Crochet Workshop
once each month. You'll learn the basics of crochet and be ready to take on some beginner projects. If you already know the basics, check out her Crocheted Hat Class
later this month.
Thank goodness we have Ann, because she is also a sock teacher! Ann's sock classes
are so much fun, and we have one scheduled in October and one in November. I know many of you come in and drool at the pretty sock yarns. It's time for you to learn the magic of sock knitting. You won't go back.
I'll still be teaching my Sunday morning Knitting Techniques
workshop. If you just need a little help getting going on something, sign up and come in before the shop opens to pick my brain for an hour. If I don't know how to help you, I'll find someone who does!
A few more of my favorites. A little handmade holiday ornamentation, anyone?
I love these gloves and this shawl. Great little treats for yourself or someone special.
|Jet Gloves: perfect for that special skein of sock yarn too nice for feet|
I'm a little weirded out that Interweave managed to go back to 1985 and convince 6-year-old me to model for these, but they are still pretty fabulous. A little red capelet and bonnet and a shawl-collared cardigan with birds on it? So classic but so cute.
Do you see something here you want to try? Take a look at our classes and sign up
for a little instruction from one of our fabulous teachers!
