    Category: GeneralTriangle Scarf

    You've mastered knit and purl, how about trying your first triangular scarf? The Concerto scarf is a perfect first shaping project, with plenty of practice for yarn over increases, then finishes with a pretty picot edge. This quick project is perfect for on the go knitting. One ball of Kid Cotton Ombre - or other nice cotton or cotton blend yarn - and size 5, 32" circular needle and 4 stitch markers is all you need. Cast on with Joan June 2 at 11:00, then follow up June 30 at 11:00 to learn the picot bind off. Class fee is $20, or free with purchase of yarn!

    Category: GeneralSteek Mug Cozy

    Here's a sweet little project that illustrates two techniques, the Simple
    Steek Mug Cozy! First, master stranded or fair isle knitting to create a great design
    when knitting in the round. You will need size 5 and 7 needles, either double point or 32" circular if you prefer magic loop. The project requires only 35 yards of the main
    color, and less than 5 yards each of 2 contrasting colors. The class is 2 sessions. The first session, on June 15 at 3:00 p.m. will focus on stranded knitting, especially
    holding two yarns at the same time. The second session is June 22 at 3:00 when we will steek the cozy, by reinforcing and cutting a vertical opening. Bring your yarn and pay only a class fee of $40, or purchase the main color and the class is free!
