Hungry for a new knitting technique? Why not try brioche knitting? Brioche knitting is everywhere right now - in patterns for shawls, cowls, hats, even sweaters. This technique pairs yarnovers, slipped stitches along with knit two together and purl two together combinations to create a soft, squishy, and deeply textured fabric. The results can be absolutely stunning! We'll be working in the round and learning the basics to get you on your way to enjoying brioche knitting!

Stash Busting for Yarn Lovers        Cost: $25.00

Saturday, April 6, 2019 10:30am-12:30pm


Teacher: Tempe Croke


This is the perfect class for anyone who has a stash! As people who craft, we find it is easy to build up quite a stash of materials for the craft(s) we love. You know, those beautiful hand-dyed skeins from wool festivals, that yarn to make the fabulous sample you saw in your favorite yarn store, the souvenir fibers from trips made near and far, the inherited yarns from others' stashes. Sometimes the amount of delicious fibers we collect can become a little overwhelming. Sometimes  we just want to organize it better.  

Whatever the fibers and whatever the source, it's a good idea to go through your stash every now and again and cull through it. We'll give you practical suggestions on how to sort through, became reacquainted with what you have, decide what you still love and what you no longer wish to keep. We'll give you tips on how to identify mystery yarns, and how to estimate how much yardage you have. We'll have suggestions for projects that use oddball skeins, ideas for mixing yarns, and what to do with yarns you no longer wish to keep.

Going through your stash can be re-energizing and inspiring! Join us for this fun and practical class!
