~ Concurrent Knitting Classes ~
1. Two-at-a-Time Socks / Pam Sluter
No more second sock syndrome! In this class students will learn how to knit two socks at the same time using the Magic Loop. We will work on a pair of toddler sized socks to learn the basics of this method. Socks will be worked from the cuff down. Students should know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off. Materials: 200 yards worsted weight yarn wound into 2 equal size balls, size US 4 29-32 circular needle, locking stitch markers.
2. Reading Your Knitting / Alison Green **SOLD OUT!!**
Reading your knitting is a foundational skill to be able to knit faster, more accurately, and more pleasurably! This workshop will help you to understand the construction of knitted fabric, so that you can use visual cues to work different stitch patterns. You will also be able to avoid (and fix) mistakes, will rarely have to count stitches, and will gain more confidence reading charts. Imagine how freeing it would feel if you could just know what stitch to work just by looking at your work! Please bring: Light-colored, worsted or bulky weight yarn and knitting needles an appropriate size for your yarn.
3. Simply Addictive Jewelry Crochet / Ellen Mason
Artist and designer Ellen Mason imparts her own addictive and efficient method of creating beaded fiber jewelry from a platform of basic crochet techniques. A great class and ROI for craft vendors building inventory for their booths, or DIY-ers who prefer to skip the mall and create quality hand-made gifts instead. Experiment with fasteners and chain-links, or bump it up a color notch with an MX dye bath when your necklace is complete. Bring materials you wish to explore, to widen the range of finished product price points. Ellen will provide an assortment of threads and supplies, but students please BYO beads and embellishments 25mm with holes large enough to accommodate embroidery-gauge thread.
