We moved! Is moving awful or what?! The good thing is I had a TON of help and we now have an amazing new space that I love. Walking into it each and every time makes me so happy. I can't believe it's ours!
We have a beautiful classroom with big windows (you can kind of see it over on the left) that overlook our backyard; in the past few days it's been warm enough to have the back door open.
We are very excited to have you all visit the shop and take classes. We've added teachers and have several special workshops coming up!
with Allyson Dykuizen
This week starts our second session of Sweater Club. Last session was a huge success! People really challenged themselves and were successful beyond their expectations! We have some beautiful sweaters! You can see them when you come to class because we have a number of past session Clubbers coming to this session. We help you EVERY step of the way. We help you choose a pattern, choose yarn, make a gauge swatch and cast on. The knitting is up to you! But we'll show you how to avoid pitfalls and finish your garment so it looks professional and fits well. You will knit a sweater that you will love AND wear!
Sweater Club starts this Thursday, but it goes for 10 weeks and you have the option of signing up for 4 or 8 weeks.
