3D Wool Charm Needle Felting. The class project will be a felted sheep (of course).
Cecilia Ho will demonstrate how natural wool fibers work wonders! Student will learn 3D needle felting by using a felting needle as a tool to build a sculptured wool creation. This “3D Wool Charm Needle Felting” project will be a great hands-on fun to create one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly wool ornament. Students will make an adorable SHEEP in various natural color combos of white, black, grey & brown. There are multiple ways to accessorize as Christmas ornament, auto rear-view mirror charm, handbag charm or even baby mobile! No experience necessary! More Class Descriptions
Special Skills Required: previous experience with entrelac
Maximum Number of Students: 20
Class Description: Mitered entrelac is an exciting new technique that takes two or more tiers of entrelac around corners as seen in Laura’s new book, “Mitered Entrelac, Knitting Entrelac Around the Corner.” The precise matching at the corners is reminiscent of mitered frames. Working a coaster or beginning a dishcloth will teach you the skills needed to work full rounds of mitered entrelac from the center out. Class will cover the rectangles needed for the center setup and a full round of mitered entrelac, and introduce a new method of picking up stitches for tight and tiny transitions between blocks and an easy way to cast on a few provisional stitches directly onto your working needle.

Supplies students should bring:Three colors of worsted weight cotton (60 yards per color for dishcloth, 30 yards per color for coaster); and 32-40” US #7/4.5mm circular needle. More Class Descriptions

Rose Window KAL: People keep asking for it, so with more enthusiasm than experience, I’m about to start my first ever knit-along with my Rose Window Tote. Variegated yarn adds the color and sparkle of stained glass to the “window” and accents of this classic tote. Each week will feature varied skills to enhance your knitting repertoire. The finished tote is as practical as it is stunning, a perfect size to take everywhere. This KAL will be done on Ravelry, www.ravelry.com, where a new group will be formed. Pattern sections will be released in six increments from March 19 – April 23, 2016. For a couple of the releases, I’ll be participating in person, at Spring Fling in Atlanta and the Capitol Hill Knitting Guild in DC (see below), but there’s no need to be local to participate!

We love lace! We love the feminine allure of lace shawls and wraps and cowls and scarves. But we do not love the wrong sides of these garments. Phooey! What’s a knitter to do? Did you know you can convert many stockinette-based lace patterns into reversible lace patterns? No, this is not double-knitting, but you should already be comfortable with 1×1 ribbing and lace knitting.
Skill level is intermediate. Prerequisite: Students should already be familiar with the basic processes of knitting lace including yarn-overs, left-leaning decreases, and right-leaning decreases.
No materials fee. The pattern is provided as part of the class materials.
No homework, per se, but please be sure you meet the prerequisite (unless you really love being in over your head).
Supplies: project uses 2 skeins of, round, springy yarn (Worsted Weight Merino is good) Needles appropriate for 1×1 ribbing in the yarn you choose If you want to practice before you cast-on the project, bring class yarn (worsted weight, plain, light-color, non-splitting) and appropriate needles.
