The unique shape of Wavebird not only reminds of bird wings but also helps to make it stay on the shoulders. The pattern has written out rows as well as charts. You will need approx 490-550 yards of fingering weight yarn. Please bring some scrap yarn and needles too. (Can be heavier weight).

Shelburne Mittens is a new pattern available in the Winter Issue of Knitty.com. We chose Debby Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Chunky yarn to knit ours. One skein should be enough to make up to a woman’s size. These mittens are knitted on size
US 9 double pointed needles. This is a super simple and quick pattern. A good project for the beginning mitten knitter.

When: Saturday, February 5th, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.

Elsbeth Lavold has created several designs using motifs that she found in various Viking ruins. They are not only ageless, but add an air of sophistication to even the most simple of sweaters. This class will focus on her design called "Ran," for a hip length sweater. It combines not only a beautiful border at the bottom of the garment and sleeves, but also a medallion in the center front. Knit it in Silky Wool for an authentic feel as well as a lightness and warmth.

When: Saturday, Feb. 26th, 9:30 am - 11:30 am and

Please come and have a look at the gorgeous sweater in the shop. It will be on display from February 8 -15 in the shop!


Back by popular demand is the Great American Aran Afghan. When completed you will be a “master” at cabling, bobbling, and chart reading. Cascade 220 yarn (worsted weight) is recommended, but you are invited to use a similar yarn of your preference. Depending on your finished size the completed afghan could use upwards to 22 skeins of yarn.

For those that are adventurous, or want a break from the squares offered in the Great American Aran Afghan book, the Great American Afghan book offers an alternative. (Both books are available at the shop.) The squares in GAA book complement those offered in the GAAA. We can either start from the beginning and everyone work on the same square or we can individually choose the order of the squares to be knitted. The goal should be to complete one square every two weeks.

When: Please call to sign up and the group will determine dates.
