is Monday and we will be doing bobbles. You can pick from squares 20, 29 or 44. Technically square 9 using Trinity St is a bobble too, but we will cover it separately. It helps to cast on before class for the squares. You could also just bring scrap yarn to practice bobbles on.
Want to learn to make cables, but keep it simple enough that you don't feel overwhelmed? This is the class for you. Make a cute cabled cowl that you sew into a circle. This class is in November with Lisa.
okay I know - it is a terrible picture, the hat is really pretty though. This one is a child size, you can make on larger in class.....The class is November 9th & 23rd. Learn to knit in the round, make pretty cables and have a lot of fun with Lisa.
I made this scarf mostly of handspun yarns and any textured stuff I could find in my stash. It was so much fun.
Today there is a weaving class - that's too late to sign up for but there is a Weaving for Fun class at Fiber in the Boro in our booth. If you want to pick your colors and get a guaranteed time slot sign up early. Or take your chances and do it at the booth. You could make something like this even....
And i just got in the new 2.5 dpi heddle - it is useful for big bulky yarns and art yarns. Think I will have to do some of that when I get home today....
Angus is made of Milk Cartons! (by Jean H.) He's just too cute. And the hat is one of my patterns, those pom poms should be here soon. But for the Snowboarder hat class you could do this one or one in a super bulky weight yarn.
Also in the window is my Witches Circle Doily - Robin is teaching a crocheted doily class on November 8th and you could take what you learn from her and make it for next year!
I'd been wanting this one for a while. It is Ashford's Sample It loom. It is 8" wide, weighs 2.5 lbs and is great for scarves or sampling a combination of yarns when you aren't sure they are going to work. Or for trying out weaving patterns or making coasters, or strips to sew together into something else....The great thing is it is more affordable if you are willing to do a bit of assembly. It took about 1/2 hour to put together, 15 minutes to warp and I was ready to weave! They'd make a great Christmas present for you weaving significant other or child!
This is one I had made a one skein cowl of last fall and I've had so many requests for it I ordered it again this fall. The yarn makes little flowery poofs as you knit. When you come to a poofy section purl it to keep it on the right side. This cowl is simple. One sk, #11 circulars, CO 60 and knit until you only have enough to bind off. Bind off and you are done.
Here's a new purse I finished this weekend. It is a crocheted one, lots of fun. Don't know how to crochet yet? Learn how with Robin - there's one spot left in her class tomorrow afternoon at 1 pm.
This came in on Friday and colors are so lovely and intense. This is the Frolicking Feet yarn from Done Roving - a company in Maine. It would be so pretty and soft for shawls and a great substitute for the ungettable Mad Tosh. We also have a dk weight 100% silk that is hand dyed and reasonably priced too.
