January Classes
The following classes still have some seats available:

101-Fast Track Gator
Mondays, January 5 and 12 6-8 pm

Learn to knit and make yourself this cozy gator to wear around your neck. We will learn to read a pattern, cast on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and cast off in this beginning knitting class. Come join the fun!

Cost: $25 & materials
Instructor: Kathy Thomas

Forest Canopy Shawl
Tuesdays, January 6, 13, 20, and 27 5-7pm

If you’re ready to tackle lace, this is a great beginning project. Make this small triangular shoulder shawl out of your favorite sport weight yarn. Fingering weight yarn is also an option, but you’ll need more yarn and smaller needles. Please check your gauge before class (4″ square in stockinette stitch).

Materials: Forest Canopy pattern, needles (#8, 24-29″ circular), sport weight yarn as specified, stitch markers, tapestry needle, and scrap yarn or dental floss (non-waxed) for “lifelines.”

Cost: $40 & materials
Instructor: Meg Little

Pajama Party

Join us for our next pajama party on Friday, January 23 from 7pm until midnight. Our pajama parties have been tons of fun and our January party will feature live music by Kelly Shively!
