Once you get started you might not be able to stop because the possibilities are endless and the results are amazing.

Christmas Ornament Knitting Class – $5 per student
Nov 30  –  Sat. 11 to noon

Make a tree ornament for the Holidays

Knitted tree ornaments are great for gifts and a fun way to get in the Holiday spirit. We will look at a few Holiday gift books and patterns for ornaments, including many that are available free as downloads from Ravelry.

We will start a Christmas ball as made popular by Arne and Carlos, two famous knit designers, instructors, and lifestyle icons. Small color chart patterns that lend themselves to Christmas ball knitting will be shared, and we will chat about preparing for the season while we share good company. Free pattern with class. Bring sock needles in small sizes.

There might be some of that famous Jorstad hot apple cider warming in the crockery pot while we sit around the work table in the Studio!
