I forgot to mention, the Noro self-striping sock yarns which I selected at Diamond Yarns, would be excellent choices for a couple of classes being offered this fall. Both designs require two skeins of sock yarn and are particularly dramatic when one of the yarns is self-striping, with long colour changes.

| Dreambird (Gabriela) 1 three hour class - $30 plus project supplies (pattern available for download)|
Date & Time
|Friday 1:00-4:00pm, Oct. 24|
|Dreambird looks more complicated than it is. When you strictly follow the instructions for the first feather the following ones will be a walk in the park! The shaping is done by short rows and Nadita Swings explains everything in detail so that you don’t need to be an advanced knitter to knit this piece. You can knit the feathers with a yarn of rather long color changes in fingering weight yarn or use Kid Silk Haze for a cozy wrap|
|Intermediate; you will love short rows after this project!|
| Itineris Shawl Knit-Along (KAL) Pattern by Hilary Smith Callis (Karen) |
Six 2 hour classes – Free with purchase of required yarn and pattern.
Date & Time
|Wednesday afternoons: October 1 to November 5, 1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M.|
|“Itineris (Latin for voyage) is a modern triangular wrap with a unique construction. The shawl is made up of three sections: a large triangle, a rectangular extension, and a smaller triangle to finish. The knitting will take you different routes while a graphic stripe sequence forms intersecting pathways along the side. Knit all in Garter Stitch with patterns and shaping that are easy to memorize, Itineris is a fun knit that results in a striking finished piece”.|
|Good basic knitting skills and the ability to read patterns.|
Both classes still have spaces. And in case you didn't notice,
Itineris is a FREE Knit-A-Long with Karen.
