You Can Knit a Blanket

You all know about Adrienne's One Year Blanket Class, right? You really should.
Starting in January, class will meet once each month (usually the first Monday of the month) to work on a blanket square. The squares are lovely and fun and interesting, and many of them will offer you a chance to learn a new skill.
By December, you will have knit twelve squares, and then Adrienne will show you how to put everything together into an awe-inspiring blanket. You can give it as a gift, or keep it for yourself and wear it all over the place, beaming with pride.

If you are at all intimated by the idea of knitting a whole blanket, this class will help you stay motivated. To keep it easy for you (and us), we are asking that you sign up for each three-month session as you go along. Sign up for January through March now, then worry about the next session in early spring.
We are using Cascade Eco and Eco+ for this project, and we will need to know what colors you would like! Sally will be placing a very large order early next week, so please pop in and choose your colors this weekend. We have color cards at the shop for you to peruse. You can do all one color or mix it up with a variety of shades. 

If I were taking the class, I would order enough yarn for a few blankets and do several squares each month. Imagine having multiple hand-knit blankets by the end of 2016!
