Is learning how to spin or just getting more time to yourself to spin on your resolution list? The first Thursday of the month is our Spin-in. Everyone is welcome to bring their spindles and wheels and join us- regardless of your ability to spin. We love to see what everyone is working on and our spinning community welcomes new spinners too. Don’t be shy!
The last Knitting Fairy hosted knitted knocker work date of the summer is Sunday, August 13
This event will run from 11-4 each day. I am told that the most requested sizes are B and C and that most prefer a neutral color. The pattern for the knockers is available on the knitted knockers website or we will be happy to hook you up. We are just about out of all the donated yarn we had. I do sell Ultra Pima, but you are not required to purchase from me. There is a list of approved yarns on the Knitted Knockers website.
Dates: Saturdays, August 12 and September 9, 1-3pm
Bring your favorite fall item to wear and we will show you how to replicate it in knitting! This should be the thing you would wear every day if you could – the thing that you wish you had purchased in every color when you found it. You will need to make a yarn selection and a swatch before we start class, so be sure to make time to come talk with Alissa beforehand.
Thursday, September 7th 10am-noon, patterns included Lace looks so intimidating, but it can be incredibly rewarding once you learn a few simple tricks. Join us for this one day class where we will start a very basic sample piece that will be worked from words. Once we’ve gotten it done with the words, then we will learn about charts.
As we move through the charts we will begin to introduce “intentional mistakes” and learn what to do to fix them. When you can fix your mistakes lace becomes magical! You will leave class with patterns to work three different scarves.
No homework is required. Supply list will be emailed to you upon your paid registration.
Sunday, September 10, 2017. 1-3pm, includes pattern Brioche is a hot trend in knitting right now and it can be pretty intimidating to read those instructions. We have chosen a simple, two color cowl to give you a fairly painless introduction to two color brioche. Do not fear, you will only be working with one color at a time! This one day class will teach you the basics of brioche knit and brioche purl as well as how to correct mistakes, a skill that is vital when working this kind of stitch.
A supplies list will be emailed to you upon your paid enrollment in class.
