PYOP (Pick Your Own Project) [IN PROGRESS]

July 7, 14, 21 & 28
Fridays
Instructor: Ann Miner

$40

The Pick Your Own Project class allows you to choose your own project–of whatever scope–and work on it in a supported environment. Assistance with techniques will be provided, and you’ll have the social benefits of a class setting. Attendance at one of two planning sessions in June is recommended.

Mindful Swatching

July 26
Wednesday
Instructor: Ann Miner
5-7 pm
$10

Reset your thinking, and approach swatching with an attitude of exploration. In this class, we’ll discuss the effect of needle choice on the finished fabric, and learn how to think “beyond the ball band.” We will also discuss best practice for measuring swatches–accuracy matters!

Wet Felting by Hand

August 12 (Saturday)
Instructor: Sandy Buzzelli
10am-2pm
$40 + materials

You’ll never run out of uses for this adorable little felted basket! It’s perfect for holding jewelry, keys, business cards or your favorite candy. Tucked near your knitting spot, it’s an especially pretty way to keep your knitting notions handy.

The basket knits up very quickly and easily, and felting it by hand gives it a classic, finished look.

You’ll be knitting your basket on your own before class meets so that we’ll be ready to jump right in to exploring in-depth how to felt by hand (vs. felting in a washing machine).

Please note: felting by hand is a mildly physical activity. It involves standing, bending over a sink, and lifting a large bowl of water. In addition, we’ll be swishing our knitted baskets in hot water for up to 30 minutes (with the opportunity to take short rests if needed). Please be sure you’re physically ready to felt by hand.

Prerequisite: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.

Helix Knitting for Jogless Stripes

August 19 (Saturday)
Instructor: Sandy Buzzelli
10am-2pm

Helix Knitting for Jogless Stripes

If you’ve ever knit stripes in the round, you know that a “jog” occurs at every color change. A number of great techniques have been developed for knitting “jogless stripes,” and perhaps the most ingenious of these techniques is helix knitting. We’ll knit the colorful and aptly named Perfect Stripes hat as we explore the wonders of helix knitting, and we’ll learn a fun and unusual method for finishing the crown of the hat.

Prerequisite: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off and how to knit a hat in the round on 16” circular needles.

    I’d like to sign up for the Continental Knitting class on Fri. 9/23/16. Is there still a seat available? What do I need to bring

    Hi Lois–
    Yes, space available. All you need is some medium-weight yarn and needles to knit with! Preferably light-colored. Sorry I didn’t see this until this afternoon!
