August 7, 2017 –
We’ve named 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 Kathleen, who is now headed toward PRO status, we begin a Spa Cloth series. Welcome to the Cabled Heart, a next-step beginner project that will reinforce the switch between knits & purls while learning the basics of cabling. This 1-session class will taught by Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson and will be held from 1 to 3 pm Monday, Aug. 7, and again from 1 to 3 pm Saturday, Aug. 19.
All materials can be purchased for 10% off after registering by stopping by or calling us at (757) 345-3655. Class is limited to 6.
