Things I ordered at the show are starting to drift in.  I got some great patterns from Knitting at Knoon.  This is one of the knitted toys.  There are also 2 others.  But I just love the Blue Footed Booby.   This would be so cute knit in some of the pretty colors of Cash Vero.  Dream in Color Groovy should be arriving this week.  It's superwash chunky weight wool.  Fabulous colors.  And some mohair silk, which rumor has it is the hottest thing yet!  Figuratively, of course--  it's very light and would make a nice summer shrug or a great transition piece.

We are starting the next round of classes in a week.  First up is Top Down Knits.  In this 4 week class you will learn to construct a raglan sweater all in one piece.  No finishing!  If you have taken a beginner knitting class you have all the necessary skills to take this class.  You will be making a baby-sized raglan sleeve sweater.  The sample is at the store if you'd like to see it.  I made a cardigan but you will have a choice of a pullover too.  From this class you will learn to make sweaters that fit you!  No more disappointing finished objects that sit dejectedly on your shelf.  The class is $85 and does not include supplies.  I will give you the supply list when you sign up.  Pattern is included.  Class begins July 8th at 6:30 PM.

Next is Crochet Beyond the Chain:  Granny Squares, Medallions and Reading Stitch Diagrams
No description necessary, right?  $65 includes handouts but no other materials.  I will give you a list of supplies when you sign up.  Class begins on Saturday, July 10th at 10AM. 

We may close early on Saturday this week since it's the holiday weekend.  Please call before you stop by.  773.244.1646. We will definitely be closed on Sunday and Monday.  Have wonderful 4th!
