In addition to our regular classes we have two special workshops coming up in June.  Tunisian crochet, the hottest trend in crochet, also known as Afghan crochet, is a type of crochet that uses an elongated hook, often with a stopper on the handle end, called an Afghan hook. It is sometimes considered to be a mixture of crocheting and knitting. As such, some techniques used in knitting are also applicable in Tunisian crochet.  There is a gorgeous picture on Ravelry of an Entrelac wrap called the Entrelove Wrap, designed by Allison Cohen. 
Saturdays June 19 and 26.  10 - Noon. $45 does not include supplies.

We are carrying Mini Mochi a beautiful, soft multi colored yarn with long color repeats that is just screaming to be this wrap.   It also happens to be superwash.  Does life get any better?
Ok, so let's say you love this yarn so much that after the Entrelove you want to knit socks.  Well it just so happens the sock class is starting on Thursday June 10th at 6:30 for 3 sessions.  For $65 you learn all the basics of sock knitting and will knit at least one sock, maybe 2 if you are obsessed like we are lately!  We also have Malabrigo sock yarn which, if you haven't seen it is a force to be reckoned with!
It's all the colors we love so much in Malabrigo but in microcosm and washable, of course.
