Beyond Beginning Beading with Emily McNeil. One of the joys of bead knitting is determining where and how to place beads even when a pattern doesn’t necessarily call for them — because who doesn’t love a little extra sparkle now and again?

Join us for a fun class in taking your beading to the next level and learn the (not so intricate!) intricacies of placing beads on ssks, k2togs, and more. We will mostly be working on a swatch, but will discuss different lace patterns that lend themselves to beading.

Required materials are 1 skein of our newest yarn, Halo, US 6 needles, a .75mm crochet hook, and 6/0 beads.

This is a 1-session class and will meet Thursday, March 28th, 5:30-7:30pm.

Class fee is $25.

Oops II with Anne Barry. Anne, fondly known as our knitting encyclopedia, will be offering Oops II again this spring. This class is designed for advanced-beginner and intermediate knitters, and will include such topics as learning to ‘read’ your knitting; how to find your place in a pattern; tricks for joining in the round without twisting or gapping; matching cast-ons and bind-offs.

As a bonus, Anne will discuss stretching techniques to keep you lose while knitting.

Please come armed with your current project and your questions!

This is a 1-session class and will meet Saturday, March 30th, 1-3:30pm. Class fee is $35.

Beginning Top-Down Sock Class with Jane Hyde.  Have you been intimidated by sock-knitting, or perhaps have been frustrated by ill-fitting socks, or are wondering what all the buzz is about when it comes to everyone and their mother knitting socks? This is the class for you! Socks are easily portable, quickly finish-able, and endlessly weareable. We will explore the components and construction of Top-Down socks, which enables the best fit for any sized foot.

Materials are 100g One Foot Two Foot and double-pointed needles in US 1, 2 or 3 to get gauge.

This is a 3-session class and will meet Saturdays, April 6th, April 20th, and May 4th. Class fee is $75.
