Gearing up for Summer!

Just because the weather is getting warmer, it does not mean you have to stop knitting!  I like to switch to knitting with cotton and linen and their blends.  Even some silks.  I have some of my students working on their first sweaters, cotton tank tops.  It is a great way to start tackling shaping without having to worry about sleeves or a complicated collar. Why don't you try it?  Feel free to contact me for pattern suggestions, or if you want to take knitting or crochet classes.

That reminds me.  I am getting a crochet teaching certification, so I am going to start teaching crochet!  I have also published my first crochet pattern, Fluff Flops!  They are really easy, and are another great idea for a quick summer project.  It would be a fun activity for girl scouts or a gift for anyone who is still a girl at heart.

Feel free to join me for the $5 Yarn Night at Michael's on Laurens Rd.  It is on May 30th at 6:30 pm.  How is $5 Yarn Night different than a sit and stitch?  You get more support from a certified teacher! I am there to help you through any problems you are having in understanding a pattern, or doing a technique.  Come join us!

Will be posting again soon on my personal summer projects!
