Tuesday afternoon ramblings

I am working on the class schedule for this fall. I have two courses decided on. The first will be an advanced finishing course-a four week course where you will learn how to properly sew side, shoulder and sleeve seams, how to make adjustments to a pattern to make the finishing easier, how to properly pick up stitches around a neck and down a front band on a jacket and if time permits some short rows. The other course will be for the scarf/dishcloth knitter or the person who wants to get back into knitting-we are going to get you knitting a sweater. The yarn will be Hug from Sirdar-big needles so it goes quickly. You can knit for a child, woman or man.

I did get a little knitting accomplished over the weekend. Unfortunately there wasn't much time on Sunday. There was 10 football games and a Nascar race all on at the same time. I spent all day working the converter.

These amazing backpacks are from the new Noni patterns that will be available later this fall.

We are now carrying Alfa from Sandnesgarn. It is 85% wool and 15% mohair that knits on a 7mm needle.
