Anna's book, Penguin: A Knit Colection, features amazing projects from knit penguins to stunning sweaters and whimsical hats. Meet Anna over a glass of bubbly, and give one of her books its new forever home!
10am-1pm - On & Off with Anna, $70: Anna will guide you and numerous fun and unique cast-ons and bind-offs as well as help you to know how to select the right technique for every project.
2-5pm - Designing in "Marlisle", $70: This technique, introduced by Anna in her lastest book, combiness the ideas behind Marl and Fair Isle fabrics, and is a fabulous way to create a unique stitch pattern in any design. With Anna's guidance you will perfect the technique and work on applying your own design to future projects.
This pattern was by far the favorite from the BrooklynTweed Wool People 9 Trunk Show. The boxy, versatile fit allowed this cardigan to look ideal on virtually every body type.
With its nice side detail and cropped style, there are a lot of opportunities for learning new techniques and customizing for your body in this 4 week class (alternating weeks). Plus it is worked at a relaxed gauge in Shelter making it a great layering piece for our climate.
Whether this is your first adult sweater or your 12th, you will certainly take something gorgeous home with you!
Registration Deadline: Monday, Jan 18th
We have recently been smitten with the many fabulous shawls by Melanie Berg. This one, worked in only one color (variagated as it may be) is a great first (or second or third shawl) with is gradual shaping and lovely details.
Sunwalker is a large shawl that is easily adjustable in size, and worked in a fingering weight yarn. Given its construction and stitch patterns, this is a fun project in which to learn many new techniques. Plus you will end up with a stunning shawl to wear all spring!
Have fun with the multi-colors of Koigu KPPPM as Nancy did in our sample, or let the stitches shine and sing in a solid from Shibui Staccato.
We hope you are all planning a very Happy New Year's Holiday!
Please note that the shop will be closed Wednesday, December 30 - Sunday, January 3rd.
We will see you all in 2016!!
