THE SWEATER CLASS
4 Sessions $80

WHAT’S IN A SHAWL
3 Sessions $65
Begins Tuesday, October 23, 6:30–9pm
Margaret Tullis, instructor
Scarves have gotten bigger, more wrap like, wonderful for a breezy evening… But where to start? How are shawls constructed? We’ll critique patterns and styles, talk color and fiber and come up with a design just for you. Learn how to knit a tab start and the magic of short
rows. We will block some shawls and discuss methods for finishing. BEGINNING KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED. PLEASE BRING ANY “STASH” YOU THINK YOU’D LIKE TO USE. WE’LL SEE HOW IT FITS YOUR STYLE.

TWO-COLOR BRIOCHE RIB

TURKISH BED SOCKS
3 Sessions $70

Margaret Tullis, instructor
So what is so Turkish about it? These slipper socks will find a way into a project bag. A great way to use a special ball of sock yarn (about 200 yards), it’s all about clever construction. We will start with the Churchmouse pattern and also explore a toe-up version, including short row toe and more interesting techniques and cuff possibilities. They make a great gift after you have enough pairs for yourself. Churchmouse pattern
included. BEGINNING KNITTING SKILLS REQUIRED.

THE MITTEN CLASS
2 Sessions $50
