Upcoming Classes - September through December

Please note that we had to rework a couple of things in September - new classes are reflected below!

Please note: Classes do fill up early; so please reserve your space in the class by paying in advance as it is unlikely we will be able to accommodate walk-ins. Payment is required within 7 days of signing up for the class or within one week before the class begins (whichever comes first). All classes limited to five people unless otherwise stated. A minimum of 2 students is required for most classes to take place. If the minimum for a class is not reached within 48 hours of the class, we will cancel the class and contact you in regards to rescheduling or a refund. Individual classes/lessons available by request (prices may vary). Homework is required in most of our classes; we know that all of you have busy schedules but please be sure to allow time to finish the work needed for classes.

All materials included unless otherwise specified

Ok, you got me... what is a mini bridgwater?

Hanks said...

Good question! Bridgewater (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bridgewater) is a shawl in the new Jarod Flood pattern book, Made in Brooklyn. The shawl is made up of a large garter stitch square with two edgings, each added to the shawl using a different technique. For the Mini-Bridgewater class, students will come to class with a small garter stitch square. In the first class they will learn to pick up stitches around the edge of the swatch to knit the first border in the round. In the second class they will learn to add a border to the existing border by knitting back and forth.
