NEW TECHNIQUES CLASSES

 

 

Gather Hat

$45 (two day class)

 

This great hat has a fun smocking stitch.  Knit in the round with worsted weight yarn, we will discuss ways to join your cast on edge so you don't twist your stitches.  A great beginner hat and a new stitch to boot!

 

Dates: Thursday, July 18 and July 25

Time: 10:30 am-12:30pm

 

 

Baa-ble Mug Cozy

$45 (2 day class)

Are you interested in color work and steeking, but not ready to tackle a sweater?  This is the project for you.  A whimsical group of sheep to keep your mug warm.  We will work on fair isle knitting the first week and steeking the second week. 

 

Date: Tuesday, July 23 and July 30

Time: 2 PM-4:30 PM

Derecho Top

4 Sessions  $80

 

We have two samples of this top in the shop using different yarns. With some easy to master short row shaping around the neck, this top is literally a breeze. We will guide you through the short rows and eyelets and then you just have to knit in the round. Come choose your color today!

 

Dates: Tuesdays, June 4, June 18, July 2, and July 18 (every 2 weeks)

Time: 2-4 PM

4 Day Sweater KAL (not really)

$10 a session

 

Marie Greene of 'Beekeeper' fame is once again doing her 4 day sweater challenge. While I do not expect anyone to finish in 4 days, including myself, I will be leading a group here at the store.

Cast on day is July 4 when of course we will be closed, so we will start on July 5 at 10 AM. I will hold sessions on July 5, 6, 9, 11, 12, and 13. Come for one or any number of those that fit your schedule. The pattern has not been released yet, but I do know it is a cardigan with no buttons, knit top down with no seaming.  You can sign up to get news on this at www.oliveknits.com.

As a participating store, I will get a pre-release of the pattern and will have a sample knit by cast on day.

Dates: July 5, 6, 9, 11, 12, and 13

Time: 10 AM-5PM (anytime during the day is fine)
