Knitter’s Tool Box: Building Blocks Skill Builder Series

Date(s) - Sat, February 28, 2015
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Over The Rainbow Yarn

The last Saturday in every month is devoted to expanding your knitting repertoire.  Using Michelle Hunter’s books, Building Blocks and Building In Color, we’ll work our way through techniques that you’ll use again and again.  As you skills grow, so will you confidence.


The first six months of 2015 will concentrate on Textures.  Each month, we’ll address two sets of skills used to make two different 12″ x 12″ blocks.  If you complete them all, you’ll have a very pretty afghan along with a whole host of new skills.

Starting in July, we’ll switch our focus to color.  Again, each month we’ll concentrate on two styles of color work.  The ten panels, when sewn together, will also make a beautiful throw.

Each class is $25.  You can take only the ones you feel you need.  If you register for an entire six month series, either texture or color, we’ll give you the instruction book for free.  If you missed January’s class and would like to book the rest of the series, we can prorate the fees for you.

As usual, you can register here, or call or drop by the shop.  We’re looking forward to helping you become The Boss of Your Knitting.

February will cover Block #3:Yarn Overs and Bobbles and Block #4:Simple Decreases.
