At The Knitting Garage
ClassesI hope you have had a chance to look over the classes offered this summer.
There should be something for everyone. If you would like to learn something you don't see listed here, you can always set up an appointment for a private lesson.
The first class is for the Easy Boxy Lace Top. This is very cute layered with any color T-shirt. You will want to make more than one for yourself and others. This class can be taken by anyone who knows the basics of knitting (i.e. cast-on, knit, purl, bind off).
The class will be held both on Wednesday, June 10th and Saturday, June 13th. There is a limit of three participants per class and you must sign up prior to the class. So far I have one person who signed up for the Saturday Class.
I will be knitting this up for my daughter-in-law. She will be stopping by this weekend to choose the yarn.

Country Living FairIf you are planning to go to the Country Living Fair this weekend, make sure to stop by Leah Stickle's stand; she has a lovely selection of goods from both AL Stickles and The Knitting Garage
At HomeI have finished two projects and made good headway on one.
I used stash yarn for this. First I crochet a 4"x 4" square on a size 7 (1.65mm) crochet hook. Then I embroidered the moon and tree branches. Last I knitted an owl on US#6 needles, sewed on button eyes and let him sit on the branch.
So far everybody I have shown it to is head over heels with it and I hope my sister will like it as much, after all it is her favorite color.

I decide to go for it anyway taking two precautions:
- I will soak the yarn in a vinegar solution prior to knitting to set the color more.
- When I need to wash the shawl I will use the color catcher sheets I just heard about from a good friend of mine.
