July 24 6-8pm
Steeking is a shortcut used to knit garments, such as sweaters in the round, without interruption for openings until the end. After completing a tube, a straight line is cut along the center of a column of stitches, in order to make room for an opening or place to attach another piece. It can be a terrifying experience, but this project gives you the confidence to steek with ease!
In this project, you will create a stranded colorwork tube that you will steek and create a tab that can be used as a coffee mug cozy.
Materials needed: worsted weigh wool (100% wool preferred), US #5 & 7 needles (circular or double pointed), crochet hook size G or 4mm, scissors, and a decorative button. Register early so as to get your homework completed before the class begins. You will get a notification about the homework after you register.

Sock Blank Dye Class
August 10 9am-12pm
Back by popular demand – this fun, creative class allows you to show your creative side and dye your own yarn! Then you can use that yarn to knit up socks, shawl, or what ever! A sock blank is a long, rectangular piece of knitted fabric created by a knitting machine and then dyed or stamped with color. The edge of the sock blank isn’t bound off — it’s loose so that you can knit from it, pulling the stitches out as you go. The basic idea behind the sock blank is that you’ll get an amazing yet unpredictable colorway when you knit with it.
Materials needed: Wear old cotton clothes, bring an apron if you have one, and your creativity! We will supply the blanks, dye and all of the rest of the materials!
