This fall, Nancy will be exploring Fair Isle knitting with Scandinavian Selbu patterns for mitts, gloves, hats and socks in fingering Finullgarn, and sport weight sweaters in Strikkegarn. Both yarns have a crisp, even texture to show off Scandinavian designs and color patterns beautifully.
You may choose your own project, or continue a project on which you are already working.
Beginners preferred on Tuesdays, but welcome any day that best fits your schedule. Please specify if you are a beginner when you register.
Intermediate and Advanced Wednesday and Thursday, or Tuesday if it best fits your schedule.
A Taste of Knitting with Caty Bach is for those who have never knit before. Come on two Saturdays, September 18 & October 2, 10:30am-12:30.
This is all about the knit stitch. Learn to cast on, knit, bind off and have a scarf to show for your efforts!
Caty will help you discover whether throwing (English) or picking (Continental) is more comfortable for you. You may not get to your first million stitches with this class, but you'll be well on your way to finding your groove and have the confidence to make a scarf on your own or to take on the purl stitch, which will lead you to textured stitch patterns and who knows what else!
Students will need 2 skeins (approximately 250 yards) of Lamb's Pride Bulky or equivalent bulky yarn and a pair of US#11 needles.
Floor Loom Weaving with Barbara runs from September 15 - October 13, at 6 p.m. (five sessions). Looms are provided, and you can come in any time the store is open to work on your weaving.
2-at-a-time-2-circular-toe-up socks with Louise will run for three sessions over five or six weeks, starting in September. Exact dates will be announced on www.depthoffieldyarn.com.
