Knit two circular shawls using the Pi Formula ‘unvented’ by Elizabeth Zimmerman

Shawl #1: basic but faded

We’ll learn the centre cast on, and the pi formula on this one, but will add a twist using the 3 colour transition method I have used on my shawls.

You’ll learn to knit an applied lace border.

Shawl #2:  more complex

We’ll use the formula we’ve learned, and add in more complex lace stitches

I have suggestions for this one, but we will decide as a group when we meet for the first class.

We’ll take turns sharing our favourite pies and recipes – I’ll go first!

Please email for yarn and supplies information, and to inquire about registration.

Please register by September 30.

Thank Goodness It’s Friday Night Knitting!    

October 6, 13, 20  November 10, 17, 24

 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This class is intended to meet your needs as you work through a knitting or crocheting project that you might need some help with.  The class is rich with learning, as so many technique lessons pop up each week!  Working on a different project during each class is a great way to get all you can from this program.  I will share the projects and techniques that I am working on, and there is an extensive library of books and patterns available to inspire you.  I always have some new magazines to share, too.  Come and climb into a cozy chair for the evening!  You may register at a reduced rate if you pre-pay for 3 classes.  Delicious (almost famous) tea will be served.  Please register by Wednesday each week, if you plan to drop in.

Crochet is a simple and exciting craft that provides limitless freedom to experiment.  

This introductory program will guide beginners through the basics needed to gain confidence and skill.  

Each week students will learn a new crochet technique, while working on small interesting projects. 

Samples will be made in each class to be kept in a student reference journal, along with personal inspiration and project ideas.

For the first session students will need two colours of a dk weight cotton yarn 

a 4 mm crochet hook, scissors, and a tapestry needle.  

  Students will also need one ball of Noro Kureyon for Session 2.

A binder with notes from each class will be supplied for you.

The cable knitting program finishes off this weekend, and this program will be our next ’studio intensive’.
It will run over several months, so that you will have a brand new cozy winter sweater.
 
 
We have knit many top down projects in the studio classes.  This time we are going to knit a Fair Isle project.
I’ve chosen Birkin from the latest issue of Laine Magazine.  Please purchase your magazine ahead of time.
 
This project presents some good learning opportunities.  There will be some 3 colour stranded knitting 
and I will guide you through the steps to convert this pullover into a steeked cardigan.  
We’ll take a look at the placement of the yoke and adjust it to flatter.
We’ll take advantage of knitting top down, to try on as we go, and add shaping where we need it.
I am planning to use a selection of Tukuwool fingering weight yarn from Finland.
 
You will receive a resource binder of notes and ideas for future projects.
 
If you are interested in this program, please email for more details.
Registration is required by July 15.
