Two New Classes and Skacel KAL Part 4

We have been working hard trying to compile a new line-up of classes beginning in February. The list is almost complete and should be out soon. Just is case it isn't ready we want you to be aware of two new classes that will begin the first two weeks of the month......


This pattern is an oldie, but a goodie. Who doesn’t want a warm pair of slippers to wear at home on cold days. They are so nice you could probably keep a pair under your desk at work too. For this class you can make either the adult or children’s clog.
Level – Intermediate
Day – Saturday, February 4th
Time – 9am to Noon
Instructor - Barbara
Both the Adult and Children’s patterns are available at YWAT. Yarn and needle size required based on the pattern you choose. Please purchase your yarn and supplies prior to the beginning of class.


Described as an “easy-to knit oversized Gansey”. The sample sweater is knitted with Berroco Remix. YWAT currently has in stock Beth Brown-Reinsel’s book Knitting Ganseys. This book is an excellent reference for Gansey knitting and includes a selection of Beth’s patterns in both adult and children sizes.

If you would like to join in this class you can choose to knit the Big Easy Gansey or select a pattern from Knitting Ganseys. If you chose the Big Easy let us know so a pattern can be ordered for you.

The sweater pictured at left will be on display at YWAT from Saturday, January 28th to the first class on February 4th 
This class will be offered as a Knit-A-Long. Future class dates will be selected at the first meeting.

LEVEL – Intermediate knitter (you must know how to knit, purl and in this class you will learn how to read a chart)

Day –  Saturday, February 11th
Time – 9 am to 11:30am
Insructor - Barbara
Please purchase your yarn and supplies prior to the beginning of class.

Part Four of the January Skacel Knit-A-Long is now available at -
This will complete your mittens or mitts. How did they turn out? Want to make another pair? YWAT still has a few skeins of Simpliworsted in stock. For those that knitted these mittens did you find the Simpliworsted to be incredibly soft and wonderful to knit? You just know they will keep your hands warm if we ever get some really cold weather.
