Recent classes include Easter Eggs for beginner and advanced beginners as well as the ever-popular Leftie. The Easter eggs were rather addictive! How did that commercial go: “You can’t eat just one?” Well, you likely can’t MAKE just one of these cuties. The samples I made for the class are pictured above. These are the eggs we made in class:
The top one and the one on the lower left were the advanced beginner eggs – both gingham style. The one on the lower right is a beginner egg. Everyone was pleased with how their eggs were turning out and there was much discussion about possible future variations.
In another class, new folks were introduced to the Leftie. This pattern is great for individuals looking to do something beyond basic scarves. It is mostly garter stitch, except for the leaves. And you get to practice them a few times in short order when starting the pattern. While we had a few adventures getting started, the students in class all got their Lefties going well before class was over.
In this class, we had three different weights of yarn in use – DK, sport, and fingering. Three of the students chose Trendsetter’s Cin Cin as their contrast yarn. This yarn has a slub texture, which can make it a bit of a challenge to work with, but the result is so worth it!
Congrats to all the students on their new skills! Stay tuned for details on what classes will be offered in May.
