Woodlands Shawl!

Here it is! The Woodlands Shawl designed exclusively for participants of Lynn Anne Banks' lace workshop at Twisted Yarns!

The light one is worked in Zephyr's wool silk blend, in the Mushroom color, and used 630 yards. The other is knit in Jamieson's Spindrift, color #292 Pine Forest, and used 915 yards.

Remember, sign ups for the workshops with Lynn Anne begin Saturday, August 22nd at 10:00 a.m. We will be able to take a few more than expected in each class, however space is still somewhat limited, so sign up early.

Wow, what a beautiful design. We'll see you soon at the shop!


The Woodlands Lace Shawl Friday, September 18 9:00 – 4:00

The students will knit a sample size of the triangular shawl "The Woodlands". There will be step-by-step instructions with different cast-on methods, the knitting of the lace body, and the more intricate knit-on lace edging. The students should be able to knit and purl as well as feel comfortable with manipulating stitches. Some lace experience will be helpful, though not required.

Class fee: $65

Reversible Stitches Saturday, September 19 9:00 – 12:00

One of the "hot" knitting topics is reversible stitches so that your knitting will look great on either side, whether it's a scarf, afghan, or trim on a sweater. We will learn the construction of many of these stitches and discuss the application of them. The student should know how to knit and purl, as well as have an adventurous spirit when playing with stitches.

Class fee: $35

Fix-It and Make it Fit Saturday, September 19 1:00 – 4:00

Many times newer knitters are faced with the seemingly daunting task of correcting "unplanned events" in their knitting. In this class we will purposely make mistakes (we won't tell) and then learn how to correct them (we'll shout for joy!). Added to this class will be information and helpful hints for getting that sweater to fit your body - how to lengthen, shorten, make the shoulders narrower or wider, etc. The students should know how to knit and purl.

Class fee: $35

If you will be signing up for all three classes, the fee will be $130.
