Are you ready to take the next step in your brioche knitting!?! In this class, we'll learn to create the captivating lines and shapes possible when we combine the basic brioche knit and purl with strategically placed increases and decreases.

Cost: $ 35.00
There are so many ways to create a sock, let Jen teach you her favorite! You will come to class with a tube, cut into your work and create a heel! This class keeps you on the edge of your seat, but soon you will be finding ways to cut into more than just socks!

Successful blocking brings out the very best in our knitted/crocheted projects -- it brings the fiber to life, ensures a comfortable fit, and makes the stitch patterns pop! In this class, we'll explore why we block and how to block by working with actual projects provided by both the instructor and YOU! We'll see demonstrations on wet blocking, steam blocking, blocking lace and cables, blocking hats and sweaters, how to use blocking wires and blocking boards, and so much more!

Cost: $ 35.00
Add exciting dimensions of color and texture to your knitting by learning to knit the two-color brioche stitch. Brioche creates a stretchy, squishy, rib-like and reversible fabric that is irresistible!

Give cabling a shot with this fisherman inspired washcloth. We will work on cables so you can tackle any project you might encounter!

Cost: $ 30.00
The look and fit of our knitted items is greatly influenced by the cast on and bind off methods we choose. If we need stretch for the cuff of a sock, we might choose one of several variations of the long tail cast on for cuff-down socks or the suspended bind off for toe-up socks. For a beautiful finish on a ribbed collar, we might choose the tubular cast on/bind off. If we are binding off after knitting garter stitch, we might use the sewn bind off. We’ll explore these and many more ways to get stitches on and off our needles (crochet cast on and bind off, Emily Ocker's cast on, 3-needle bind off, I-cord bind off), and we’ll come away with a general understanding of when and how to use each method. As an added bonus, we’ll also discuss how to deal with two pesky issues that crop up when binding off: that loose last stitch when doing the traditional bind off and the jog that happens when binding off in circular knitting. Prerequisite: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.

Cost: $ 35.00
Learn to crochet in the round as you make a hat or a market bag (or both!). We'll learn how to do the magic ring, how to increase adn how to read basic crochet patterns!

Cost: $ 30.00
While there are many ways to add colors and motifs to your knitting – intarsia, color stranding, and mosaic knitting, to name a few – double-knitting might just be the most intriguing of all. Double-knitting creates a two-color, double-layered fabric that is knit all at one time and is also completely reversible. In this class, we’ll knit the School Spirit Headband so you can cheer on your favorite team in true double-knit style!

Cost: $ 35.00
You are comfortable with knitting, but having troubles with the finishing touches like weaving in ends, i-cords and fun techniques like the Kitchener stitch!

Cost: $ 30.00
If you've ever knit stripes in the round, you know that a "jog" occurs at ever color change. A number of great techniques have been developed for knitting "jogless stripes", and perhaps the most ingenious of these techniques is helix knitting.

**** This is a two part class **** If you're a sock knitter, you might have suffered from one-sock-itis (aka one-sock syndrome), that dreaded lack of desire to start, much less finish, the second sock of a pair. Despair not, because we have the cure - knit both socks at the very same time! You're guaranteed to have two socks by the time you're done, and both socks will be exactly the same - no more trying to remember what you did on the first sock! We'll be knitting our pair of socks from the toe to the cuff - making it easy to get a good fit, and we won't have to worry about running out of yarn on the second sock. Whether you knit your socks using the Magic Loop or two circular needles, you can learn to knit two socks at the same time
