Rug Hooking Class and a Knit-along
Beginner Rug Hooking Class – For those of you who have called and asked about the Beginner Rug Hooking class on June 9th, we will be going ahead. There was some concern that I didn’t have enough hoops but I do have enough. However, if you have an embroidery hoop or a Q-frame please bring it along with you to class. I will need you to come in to the store to sign up sometime in the next week. I am going to try to keep the class to 6 so you all have time to use the cutter.
Knit Along – I know we all waited a very long time for the nice weather to arrive but now that it’s here I am already thinking of fall knitting. Starting June 25th Wool-Gathering will be hosting a knit along. You will have your choice of two patterns both by Tin Can Knits. The two patterns are Antler and Lush.
Both of these patterns are very easy knits with a bit of a challenge around the shoulders to add to the interest. In the case of Antler the yoke area is cabled and in the case of Lush it’s lace. Both of the patterns have been rated very highly on Ravelry and both can be made in a variety of yarns. And one of the many great things about Tin Can Knits patterns is the extensive range of sizes available: you can knit either of these cardigans in sizes from 6 months to 4XL.
Since we’re starting on the 25th there is time to come in to the store and pick out or order the Briggs and Little, Cascade 220, Malabrigo worsted or Sweet Georgia worsted in a colour you love. You can buy the pattern in the store through Ravelry, just bring your Ravelry ID with you.
