Here is a sneak peek at some of the new projects that will be included in this workshop:

Woolie Bullie Mittens
Quick and Easy, these mittens were knit using Woolie Bullie yarn and Louet Riverstone Pattern and Woolie Bullie yarn will soon be available at YWAT.    --YWAT currently has a similar boucle yarn in stock in a black/white combination that is a perfect trim. 

Beaded Christmas Tree Mittens
Knitted using Cascade Heritage Sock yarn. This pattern will give you a taste of knitting a simple design and adding a few beads for that little extra bling. Pattern will soon be available at YWAT.

MOLLY SCARF featured in the Classic Elite Yarn book Accents. Using simple short rows this scarf helps create the ruffled edge on this scarf. 
The scarf in progress in the photo below is being knit using JoJoLand Rhythm yarn. YWAT has a nice selection of colors available at a very reasonable price.


If you’re new to lace knitting, this is the project for you! Learn the relationship between yarn overs and knit togethers that is the basis for all lace knitting. Make this lovely cardigan in either linen, cotton or lightweight wool. It’s a truly feminine design and will look lovely over a short sleeve or long sleeve shirt.

When: Saturday, October 29th, 9:30am - 11:30am
Instructor: Sheila
Level: Intermediate
Please select yarn prior to class.

 The pattern is described as
* Very easy
* Lots of Knitting
* Minimal Finishing
My kind of pattern! The Einstein coat is the perfect project for the beginner knitter who is ready to make something besides scarves, hats and mittens. As with all patterns in this book all you have to know is how to cast on and the knit stitch. The pattern is also constructed in such a way that if you would prefer making a shorter version it can be easily accomplished.
Pattern is available for children and adults. Yarn requirements will depend on the pattern size you chose.
