Class Additions

First Sweater
Thursday 4-28th, 5-5th & 19th                                    5:30 to 7:30

 The Split Neck T Shirt Sweater is a very versatile and great first time sweater to make!  The simple raglan sleeve top down design looks great with jeans. It is knitted in worsted weight yarn and is a must for a summer evening walk on the beach or the Douglas Preserve (aka Wilcox property), or dress it up by using a more luxurious yarn and head off to a nice dinner.  
Homework:  Gauge swatch
Skill: Knit & purl, read a pattern
Materials:  Pattern, worsted weight yarn, stitch markers, needles

Reversible Lace Shrug
Saturday May 7th & 14th                                       2:00 to 4:00

This flattering lace shrug starts with a simple rectangle then joined together so that the remainder of the shrug is knit in the round.  The rolled shawl collar and flared bottom are created by increases which widen the shrug so it can be worn with the sides falling gentle open or closed with a shawl pin.  We are using Noro Retro, a beautiful yarn with wool, angora and silk.
Skill: Knit & purl, read a pattern
Materials:  Pattern, Noro Retro yarn, scrap yarn,  size 10 needles

Welted Fingerless gloves
Saturday June 4th & 11th                                 11:00 to 1:00

Learning how to use double point needles (DPN’s) can be frustrating so we want to teach you how by making these simple and adorable fingerless gloves.  They are fun to personalize with some color work or a little bling.
Homework:  Gauge swatch with larger needle size (US6)
Skill: Knit & purl, read a pattern
Materials:  Pattern, one skein of Manos Silk Blend yarn, two sets of DPN's needles, stitch markers
