My Spring/Summer Classes promise lots of fun and knitting satisfaction.

Get ready for summer with these accessories. 
Some of these knit up in no time at all and are small enough to take along wherever you go.
Please note that I am very flexible with the class schedule and if you are interested in a specific class, but can’t make it to the posted date, I can add a class on a day convenient to you or switch the date.  All classes are for a maximum of three students.
For all classes I am giving two choices of dates.

#12 Skirt by Norah Gaughan  (Vogue Knitting) This is a fun flared swingy skirt worked seamless.  In class we will go over the pattern, practice unfamiliar stitches and get started.  No, you will not finish this in class, but you are always welcome to come back with additional questions or problems.
What you need: 920-1265 yards of Sport weight cotton yarn or other fiber of your choice and a US# 5 circular needle.  The $5 pattern is included in the class fee.

Turkish Bed Socks by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas  This is a great low sitting summer sock to wear in your clogs, keds etc (NO, you do not need to go to bed in them).  I just finished a pair myself. They are knitted one at the time and the instructions are given for DPN’s, but this can also be knitted on two circulars.  Half of the sock is knitted flat, and then joined in the round.  You should get most if not all of the flat knitting done during class.
What you need: 170-175 yards of fingering or sock weight yarn and US# 3needles (either DPN’s or two circulars).  The $5 pattern is included in the class fee.

Leftie Shawl by Martina Behm So, you have been knitting socks lately and have a lot of pretty sock and fingering weight yarn left over?  This is a great pattern to use up and show off those leftovers.  You will learn how to do German short rows and get started on the shawl.  You will get at least 1-2 sections finished J
What you need:  At least 420 yards of fingering yarn for the MC plus leftover yarns of the same weight (Buy some unicorn tails if you want!)  US# 1 ½ -US# 2 ½ circular needle (depending on your tension and desired denseness of finished shawl).  The $5 pattern is included in the class fee.

Jersey Knit Bracelet by Vanessa Christenson  This is a finger knit and you should be able to finish this during the class.  Using your fingers instead of knitting needles may feel awkward at first, but you will get the hang of this.
What you need:  Three fabric strips of 1 inch width approximately 58 inches long. Jersey is a good choice for its stretchiness.  Alternatively you could knit three strips or use some pretty 1” wide ribbon :).  The pattern is free. 

Average Difficulty rating:  No ratings

All Classes are $55 and include the pattern when applicable. 

Additional help with the project is also included in the class fee.
