Friday 10:00 - 12:00 PM
Cowls, etc with Steph
 stephs cowl
Steph has just finished her new Spiral Cowl.  Knit in Hempathy.  Join her on Fridays to make one for yourself.  Embellish it with one of the many new shawl pins we have recently added to our showcase at The Knitter's Edge. 


6:30 - 8:30 PM
General Knitting and Shawls with Steph
Steph has just about finished her Citron Shawl.  You can join the class and work on this simple circular shawl
Tuesdays 4:00- 6:00 PM
Thursdays 6:30- 8:30 PM
Great American Afghan Squares
With Diana
Diana's Sqaure
Diana is undertaking a wonderful, yet monumental project- The Great American Afghan. 
You can join her to make the afghan, or to just try you hand at these by making just a pillow (only 2 squares).  Work on one square at a time with Diana.  The first square she knit is the acorn leaf square as seen here. 
Diana's Second squareShe has just finished a second square seen here, laying on top of the first square: Call for more information and to sign up.
Saturdays in April
1:00 - 3:00 PM
Socks on 2 circs with Pat 
 Puppy Love small
 At the beginning of April- Pat started a new sock of the month,  This month she has chosen a simple  stitch pattern- but one that teaches a new technique- knitting backwards!  The sock is called Puppy Love and will look best in a self striping sock yarn- and we have many to choose from including the new Fingerpaints from Cherry Tree Hill (see more below on this yarn).  You can join up at any time.  
4:00 - 6:00 PM
Toys with Steph
Steph's toy class has become a huge hit.  She has encouraged many toy knitters to come out and declare their love for toys.   This past Saturday, Rebecca brought  in a stuffed Armadillo she had knit.  It was complete with a "shell" that is curled up in.  I just wish I had gotten a photo!  It was really cute.
Maddox Another customer brought in Maddox the Mischevious Monster for us to see- he is a cutie! 
Tuesdays & Thursdays- Beginning April 20
6:30 - 8:30 PM with Linda Miller
Linda Miller is starting a new Shawl!  This is called Nightsongs.  The pattern is worked in charts- not very difficult ones.  The pattern is repeatable so you can easily make the shawl larger.  This was important to Linda as she wanted to use all of the 550 yards of the new Blue Heron Rayon Metallic she purchased for it.  The pattern as written calls for 1 hank of Handmaiden Sea Silk ( we got that!) at 440 yards- so you can use that too.
By the way- you can freely come to either of Linda's classes- Tuesday or Thursday.  So if one week the Tuesday works best- come then, and the next week- Thursday of it suits your schedule better.  
Saturdays in April
1:00 - 3:00
Socks with Eileen   
Eileen started April with a new sock  knit with a brand new yarn by Cherry Tree Hill.  Its called Fingerpaints.  Cheryl Potter- owner & master dyer of CTH has discovered a way to make a self striping handpaint sock yarn.  We have the first products from her dyepots at The Knitter's Edge.  The base yarn is her signature Supersock Select- spun in Peru just for her.
The colorways are new and exciting.  Eileen has chosen Morning Glory- a blend of purples and greens that says Spring all day long!
Tuesday April 13
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Washcloths with JoAnne 
Flower Power clothThis Tuesday-April 13,  we celebrate Spring with a flower wash cloth.  This cloth is knit in pieces (the 5 petals) which are then connected and knit to the center on a 16" circular followed by double pointed needles.  A good learning experience.   You will need a 16" size 7 or 8 plus double pointed needles in size 7 or 8.  We supply the yarn.
Thursday April 15
10:00 - 12:00 PM
Washcloths with JoAnne
Octagon clothThis week, for the Thursday class-after weeks of doing some tough but intersting cloths- we will lay back & relax with a simple cloth-knit from the center out. You will need size 7 or 8 double points as well as 16" circular size 7 or 8. Same needles needed as for flower cloth above.
 Join Any of Pat's Classes  for The Brandywine Shawl
BrandywineYou may join any of Pat's classes and work on this new shawl.  The Brandywine Shawl. Pat is knitting it out of Hand Maiden Sea Silk- a Silk/ Sea cell blend that has incredible drape and luxurious shine and color.  Just one hank makes this easy lace shawl.
