We don’t want to scare you, but it’s not unheard of to start holiday knitting in the spring. Oh, yeah, we know, we FINALLY had summer-ish weather here in Portland, so why, oh, why is there holiday knitting peer pressure already? Because, we don’t want YOU to be caught unawares. Dont’ worry, you are very welcome. (heehe)
There are a few classes coming up that would be a great pre-holiday knitting learning experience. The Beaded Wristlets that Emily talked about in her previous post is one of them (and there are still slots available), and the Intro to Circular Knitting/Basic Hat Class is another.
If you are ready to get out of the scarf rut and learn some new techniques, this is the class for you. Learn from a Master, (literally – the teacher is a certified MASTER KNITTER – GO DAWN!!), and wow your loved ones with gorgeous knit hats come winter.
