It seems that one of the trends coming our way is fabulous knitted color work – just look on Ravelry. So to help you prepare and make sure you’re not left behind, we have 2 classes that will set you up for success. You may take just the one you need, but sign up for them both for $50 and save $10.

Continental Knitting

Do you watch in awe as you see other knitters ‘picking’ rapidly at their yarn as you continue to ‘throw’ yours? If you are already a competent ‘thrower’ (American or English style) and would to switch styles, or become more proficient in stranded color work, then this is the class for you. Take this opportunity to learn the Continental (or German) method of knitting while working on a simple basket weave pattern washcloth.

Dates/Times: Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2:30 – 4:00 pm
                              OR Saturday, Feb. 3, 10:30 am – Noon
Cost: $30.00

2 Handed Fair Isle

What!!! Two hands? What is this wizardry? This is by far the most efficient method of knitting stranded color work. If you have mastered both English & German techniques, it is only a very small step to being able to master this. We will focus on working in the round (no purl stitches), but will review how to handle ‘flat’ pieces too.

Dates/Times: Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2:30 – 4:00 pm
                              OR Saturday, Feb. 17, 10:30 am – Noon
Cost: $30.00

Running in Circles

Running in Circles - Little Treasure BagAre you one of those knitters who will go to any lengths to avoid using double pointed needles? Or maybe you have the perfect pattern lined up but it uses the Magic Loop technique, which might as well be magic for all you know. Or what about using 2 long circulars for something as small as mittens — how can that possibly work? All will be revealed in this workshop. We will make (or at least start making) one Little Treasure Bag in each technique — so you will never be stuck again. There is some homework before class so be sure to register in good time.

Dates/Times: Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2:30 – 5:30 pm
                              OR Saturday, Feb. 24, 10:00 – 1:00 pm
Cost: $60.00 plus materials
