Knitting Lite Series ($30, materials not included)
We're bringing back this series of 2-hour classes, each one designed to get you started with a new technique to add to your ever-growing toolbox.  There may be homework before class, so please ask when you call to register.
Lace Lite - Saturday, August 23rd, 10:30-12:30pm
First on the calendar is Lace Lite.  Brooke will take you through the first steps of creating simple lacemotifs, how to increase and decrease in pattern to create overall garment shaping, and how to fix simple mistakes (and the ever-popular tips on how to avoid the mistakes before you make them).

KPS Lite - Saturday, September 6, 1:00-3:00pm
Knit, purl, slip. We say it all the time to our beginners - if you can do those, you can make whatever you want.  In this class Robyn will show you how to create intricate-looking textures that are easy-peasy to work using only knits, purls, and slipped stitches. You'll also learn how to read simple charts, and to increase/decrease in pattern.

A Pair of Socks (Classes)
Basic Socks - Tuesdays  August 19, 26, & September 2 1:00-3:00pm  $45 (materials not included)
If you've never knitted socks before, this is the class for you.  Choose between 2 circulars or double-pointed needles and a worsted weight yarn to make this 1st pair of socks. Socks are popular and portable, and everyone wears them! you'll learn a flexible cast on, how to work in the round, turning a basic heel, and various toe options in this cuff-cown class.  This will also prepare you nicely to join in Carol Sulcoski's workshop later in September.

Socks: the Tricky Fun Parts - 10:30-12:30pm  $20 each sesssion (materials not included)
Heels August 30 
Toes  September 6 

Has it been a while since you've done socks?  Forgotten how to turn that heel?  Maybe you want to learn a different toe to suit your foot. Or are you signed up for Carol Sulcoski's workshop but you only know how to do Magic Loop?  Take one or both of these classes to "reboot" your memory, or learn to work with 2 circular or double pointed needles.
