January 2013 Classes

Time does fly when you are frantically finishing Holiday gifts. If someone can find November and December for me, I’d appreciate it.

But in the meantime, January’s class schedule is out.

January 5 – Beginning Crochet 10 am to noon

January 12 – Beginning Knitting 10 am to noon; Texture Stitches (knitting) 1 pm to 3 pm

January 19 – Crochet II 10 am to noon; Crochet Hats 1 pm to 3 pm

January 26 – Knitting II 10 am to noon; Toe-up Socks (part 1) 1 pm to 3 pm (part 2 is on February 23

I’ve changed classes up a little this year – the times are pretty much the same, but the theory behind the classes has changed.  The focus is going to be skill building through technique. 

Rather than one beginning class, there will be “Beginning” and “II.”  Beginning will be the formerly titled “What is/are this/these hook/needles and how do I use it/them?”  This is the class for the absolute beginner.  II is the class for the person who knows how to chain or knit XX years ago but can’t remember how to get started, or for the person who took beginning last month but wants a bit more tutelage before going on to make a sweater/mittens/lace (whatever is next up on your goals for 2013).

Then there is the “Texture and Color” series.  Every month we will have one knitting class that looks at a specific aspect of using texture or color in your knitting.  January is texture stitches using only the knit and purl stitches.  Other classes coming up include Stranded Colorwork (AKA Fair Isle), Double Knitting, Mosaic, Intarsia, Cables, Brioche, Lace, and probably a few others (comment if you have a class request).

So, make a resolution to learn a new yarn crafting skill, let us know what it is, and take a class!

Don’t forget, Oh Yarn It is on Facebook, Twitter, Ravelry (as Oh Yarn It), and Pinterest (OhYarnItShop).  Follow, Tweet, Share!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

I’ve lost another month

Help! I’ve lost October! And November! That means I only have 23 days to finish my Christmas knitting. I feel faint!

You can make sure you get the yarn-y things you want this year by adding Oh Yarn It to your Christmas list. Gift registry and certificates are available. And classes next year are going to be fabulous!
