Sock Knitting Technique Class

second for a pair of socks for a little one. Knowledge of the knit and
purl stitch are all that are required to attend this class.
Raggy Flannel Quilt

This is a very beginner friendly quilt. Raggy style quilts are
“quilt-as-you-go” and they make their own binding on the edge. You will
learn how to make the blocks in class and how to assemble them into a
quilt top. This one is made with flannel fat quarters so fabric
selections are stress free. Choose your size from baby to large throw.
Class fee: $25.00
Pearly Rib Scarf
Tues. Nov. 25, 1-4 pm
The pattern stitch in this scarf is full of texture. Knit it with a soft
yarn and the results are lush, squishy and oh, so soft! Our model is
knitted with a new yarn which is a blend of bamboo, merino wool and silk
and it comes in beautifully shaded colors. One skein is all it takes to
make a scarf. This pattern stitch is fun and makes a nice variation from
the usual rib pattern. Knowledge of the knit and purl stitch are all
that is required to learn this new technique.

be made for year round enjoyment after learning this technique.
