Classes Saturday September 26:

Square of the Month Class:  11:30 am
The next installment in the square of the month club will be heart pattern, intarsia style. Please bring two colors of yarn that compliment each other (or not, your choice). We will be working this pattern from a chart. I suggest bringing one of those clear plastic page sleeves, and some post-it notes to help mark your rows.
Even if you are not part of our square group, this is a great way to learn intarsia, sometimes referred to as picture knitting.

Finishing Class:  Finishing can be fun!  3:00pm
Knitting really “came together” for me when I learned how to finish my knitting more professionally. Come join me on Saturday afternoon (3pm) and we will cover the finishing basics.
There is some homework, so if you have time to make some swatches, it really helps to have something in your hands to work on.
Using a light colored yarn and needles in a compatible size for that yarn. 
Make 2
cast on 10 stitches. 
Row 1: K2, P2 across, end w/K2.
Row 2: P2, K2 across, end w/P2 
Work for 8 rows 
Then switch to garter stitch, knitting every row for 12 rows.
If you have a project that needs to be put together, you can bring that to class instead of the swatches.
I hope you can make it!
