You guys. Seriously, you guys.
So, March – everyone’s least favorite month – is coming to an end! I know, right? I never thought it would be here either; and yet. Our calendars, like our hips, don’t lie. The snow is melting, the ice is slowly being chipped away from the sidewalks and bipedal locomotion is totally a thing again! Work them gams, girl! I’ve heard that in parts of the country – ok, L.A. – the strawberry season is beginning! Sure, we’re approximately a million miles away from Southern California, but if this great nation is into anything, it’s unity, and so I say, SPRING IS HERE, BABY!
In honor of Spring, and the gas money you will save by walking, might I humbly suggest a few of our stellar April classes?
We have a couple of great classes for those of you who like to knit for tiny humans. Jen will be teaching the baby moc-a-sock class – sweet, moccasin-esque baby booties! She will also be teaching a class on Little Sister’s Dress, an darling little dress or tunic in several sizes, and a free pattern on Ravelry.

Baby Moc-a-Soc : April 3 + 10, 6-8 pm. $20 plus materials.
Little Sister’s Dress : April 9,16 + 23, 6-8 pm. $30 plus materials.
It might be a little late in the year to cast on for a sweater, but it is prime time to make yourself a lovely shawl or lacy scarf to keep your neck warm on chilly Spring evenings. Jean’s Easy Lace Scarf class teaches you the basics of lace knitting with a pretty and straightforward lace pattern, which can even be made in worsted weight yarn! No toothpick needles for you! If a shawl is more your speed, Jen will be teaching a class on the ever popular Color Affection Shawl. Again, tiny needles will not be making an appearance – this shawl can be made with fingering weight yarn on size 6 needles, or lace weight yarn on size 3 needles.
Our in-house color affection shawl. Lovely!!

We also have a slew of crochet classes this coming month. The reversible scarf pattern is a fun and quick way to introduce a little colorwork into your crocheting. Jo’Elle will also be teaching a crochet finishing class for those of you who have had a partially finished crochet project weighing you down that you just can’t finish.

Did you really think that was all? Oh, no. Of course not. Surprises are just falling out of our sleeves like a bad magician, and here’s another one for you – the Knit Swirl Trunk Show is coming!
This may actually be the worst-kept secret in the world because everyone and their brother is talking about it. The show will feature five garments, including at least one example of each of the four silhouettes featured in the book, and at least one example of each of the three sizes. It also includes designer notes on each garment, and tips for fitting the garments. Can you even handle it? Come check it out, beginning April 5!
