Wow! How did it get to be September?! We’ve filled our calendar once again with knitting classes. Quilters – don’t despair; there is an awesome event for you on the calendar: the Nassawango Outdoor Quilt Show.
Here’s the rundown of classes:
Knitting and Crochet…
Log Cabin Square ($15). Learn to create a simple, but fun, knit square that builds upon itself. A great way to use up left over bits of yarn. Square is done in garter stitch (all knits)! You’ll need yarn, appropriately sized needles (a US 8 for worsted weight yarn), basic knitting supplies. [Saturday, September 3, Wednesday, September 21 - all from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.]
Feed Your Creativity #12 Seamus Cowl ($25, includes yarn and pattern). Features Kollage Yarn’s worsted merino wool, Fantastic. Create this elegant cowl with just knits and an occasional cable. You’ll need a 16″ circular in size US 8, and a cable needle. [Friday, September 9; Wednesday, September 14; Saturday, September 24 - all from 10 a.m. - noon]
Feed Your Creativity #11 McTwist Hat ($25, includes yarn and pattern). Features Kollage Yarn’s newest merino, Lofty, a chunky roving yarn that’s airy and quick to knit. Create this simple hat that is just knits and purls. You’ll need a 16″ circular in size US 10-1/2 or US 11. This class was a bit hit last month, so we’re offering it again! [Friday, September 16 - 10 a.m. - noon]
Fair Isle Pillow ($25, includes pattern). Come get started on a lovely fall pillow and learn the Fair Isle technique. Using no more than 2 colors at a time, you can create lovely patterns. We’ll be knitting this pillow in the round and then steeking (cutting the tube to make it flat). It sounds scary, but isn’t – and Stacy will take you every step of the way! This class will continue to be offered as we progress through each of the steps. Cost of the class covers entire process. You’ll need several coordinating colors of worsted weight yarn, 24″ US 7 or 8 circulars. [Thursday, September 22 - 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.]
Tunisian Crochet ($10 for intro, $5 for new stitch). Also called Afghan Crochet, this process uses a long crochet hook to create a dense fabric that is perfect for many projects – including afghans, scarves, bags, and garments. You’ll learn the basic stitch. Please bring a worsted weight yarn and an “H,” “I,” or “J” Tunisian hook. Of course we have hooks and yarn available for purchase! [Wednesday, September 7 (1-3 p.m.); Friday, September 23 (10-noon)]
Crochet Granny Square ($15) This class will teach you the basics of building a Granny Square. We’ll cover how to best change colors and when. You’ll need at least 2 colors of worsted weight yarn, G, H, or I crochet hook. [Wednesday, September 28 - 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.]
Tech Square Afghan don’t give up if you feel you’re falling behind. Come any Thursday for Sit and Stitch!
