We’re naming this series after our beginning knitter Kathleen who gave us this idea. As a beginner, Kathleen wanted to practice her knits & purls, so she picked up a spa cloth pattern and whipped through it. In honor of beginner, who is now headed toward PRO status, we are holding a Spa Cloth series. Welcome to The Santa Cloth. This spa cloth is bumpy to help exfoliate the skin. Pair it with our Tasha’s Own Williamsburg soaps, and you have the perfect gift for birthday, or the Holidays! The Santa Cloth is a next-step beginner knitter project and will teach you how to switch between knits & purls while learning the basics of reading a pattern. This 1-session class will be taught by Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson and will be held 3 to 5 pm Monday, Dec. 18.
