Rumor has it that we will finally be getting a rainy winter this year!
We have the projects to keep you both warm and entertained as our cooler weather rolls in, be it a new favorite cardigan like the Woodfords Cardigan knit in Loft, a luxuriously stylish pullover like the Gehry, or a cozy and colorful cowl like Shoo Fly. We have just the project for you to hone all of your amazing knit and crochet skills, so check our website for schedule and availability. We are adding new project classes and 1-day workshops daily, so sign up early before things fill up!
Knitting a sweater is a very rewarding project that will not only increase your knitting skills, but open up the possibility of so many new patterns. Baby sweaters are great projects to start with because you will learn all of the necessary skills to make a sweater, and complete the project quickly.
A big thank you to Lea Redmond for coming out and teaching a fabulously inspiring Knit the SkyWorkshop last evening. We left the workshop steaming with really amazing ideas inspired by the weather, the environment and our own personal life experiences. We still have a few copies of the book available, so come check it out!

Join Nancy as she teaches knitters how to make the beautiful Haruni Shawl, beginning September 12th.
Haruni is a stunning, triangular lace shawl worked from the top-down. Instructions are both charted and written making this a great project for learning charts.
The pattern is available to download on Ravelry for free, and requires about 525 yards of lace weight yarn to complete.
We added optional beads to our version, and will be teaching this technique in the class as well!
