                                      ********************



Socks on 4 needles.  This basic sock class will have you knitting socks in no time.  We make a small sock so you can get all the way through turning the heel and forming the gusset in the class. You can decide to make a child's pair of socks or a red one and a green one and put candy canes in them for Christmas. You will also learn the "dreaded" kitchner stitch to close the toe. (You will learn a quick mantra to remember this.)

A basic knowledge of knitting is required. There will be a bit of homework to get your sock cast on and worked to the ankle before class.


$25 includes the pattern. You supply yarn and needles.

1 Session - Saturday, February 11 - 1pm to 3:30pm.

Beginning Weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom.  This is a great class to get you into weaving quickly.  Learn the fundamentals on this portable loom in only 5 hours. You will learn to warp the loom, make calculations for creating your own projects, finishing, and learn good weaving practices. We will be making a table runner.

We will use a cotton or cotton/linen blend for the most interest. We will have suggestions for you to pick from. You should finish your project in the class but, if not, you can take the loom home (with a $100 deposit on your credit card). The teacher is very experienced and the class is a lot of fun. If you love your loom and wish to purchase it, it is $195.

$75 for the class. Yarn extra.  We only have room for 6 students so sign up early.

Saturday, February 18, 10:30 to 3:30 pm.  Bring lunch.


Skill Builder Classes Knit 2 beautiful blocks every 2 months for a total of 12 different designs. You will learn a different knitting technique with each piece and when you are finished, you will assemble them into a lovely lap throw. (You will be proud to give this as a Christmas gift.) 

In the first class you will get started on your first square and discuss the next one that you will make. In the rest of the classes you will continue building your skills with each square.


The first class is $35 which includes a $20 book with all the patterns in it. You supply the yarn and needles.  Please wait for the first class to choose your yarn as the teacher would like to discuss the best colors and yarn for this project. The successive 5 classes are $15 each. You can call a few days before these last 5 classes and pay for them at that time.

You must know how to cast on, knit and purl for this class.

Tuesdays - February 21, April 18, June 20, August 22, October 24 and December 12.  The first class is  5:30pm to 8pm. The rest are 5:30pm to 7:30 pm.







2-At-A-Time TOE UP Socks - We think this is the best way to do "2 at a time socks."  Beginning at the toe you will make 2 small socks so you will be able to finish them in this 2 session class.  

You will learn to cast on, increase and work the rest of the sock, heel, gusset and leg and then have all the information you need to make big socks. You will do 2 different yarn colors for the class so you can really see where you are going. (You can do red and green for small Christmas ornaments!) As soon as you knit both socks at once you will be hooked.  No more SSS (second sock syndrome) and when you're done, you're done.


$65 includes a $15 book, yarn and handouts.  You supply the needle.

2 Sessions - Saturdays, February 25, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. and March 11, 10:30 am to 1:30 pm.  Bring lunch.

Entrelac gives a fun, woven look to your knitting and it is nowhere near as difficult as it looks.  If you can knit, purl and pick up stitches you can create a pillow just like this. We will have lots of examples of how you can use this method to knit pillows, scarves, blankets, anything you want. Variegated, solids and the new tonal yarns are all fabulous. 

$45 inclludes pattern and yarn.  You need to supply a #7 needle.

Tuesday, February 28  - 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.


Knit-A -Long  with us.  We will meet 3 times to get a great start on this wonderful shawl. It is made with CoBaSi from Skacel which is a blend of cotton, bamboo and silk. We have a yarn kit made up of 4 skeins of grey and white (or your choice of background color) and small balls of the contrasting colors.  The cost of the yarn is $48.75 and the KAL is free. The pattern can be purchased from Ravelry - (My Summer Song).

Tuesdays, March 7, 14 and 21. 4 pm to 5 pm. KAL is free with yarn purchase.

Palindrome weaving

Palindrome - a word that is spelled the same backward and forward - radarmadam - you get the idea. In this class we will learn to warp the loom using hand dyed yarns to get the most out of hand dyed palindrome colors.  We will make a fabulous scarf or pillow. If you want to make a garment, additional yarn will be required.

The yarn we will use is from Blue Heron Yarns, a hand dyed rayon twist and a solid darker DK weight.  You need to have a rigid heddle loom with a 10 dent reed.

1 session - Saturday, March 25, 10:30 to 1:30. Bring a snack. $40. Yarn extra.
