Ah Ha! Moments

Share Button

Last weekend the store was buzzing, not only with knitters grabbing up yarn for projects (just in case the prediction of a snow storm turned out to be true), but also with the the sound of “ah ha!” moments coming from the classrooms again and again.

In addition to classes about felting slippers, finishing techniques and the tricks and tips of fixing mistakes, this weekend saw Annie Foley lead a group of knitters through the exhilarating process of cutting their knitting for the first time in the workshop “Eek! Steeks!


(Thanks to Kathy C. for sending along her photos of the action!)

We also were thrilled to welcome Amy Herzog who gave a Fit to Flatter workshop. Amy walked us through taking our own accurate measurements, looking at our body shapes and determining the styles that will flatter each of us most. The concepts she passed along were eye-opening, and we had so much fun trying on garments that looked both great and not-so-great on each of us. I know I’m looking at my Ravelry queue with a whole new eye to what might suit me best.

It was certainly a jam-packed weekend, and it’s only the beginning! We have a ton of classes scheduled this season. Just look at them all! Which ones are you excited about?

(Also: Did you know you can leave reviews of classes on our website?

    I have lost all my enthusiasm for knitting over the last few months (shh don’t tell my husband!) and I think the next “Fit to Flatter” might just be the cure.

    I hope so – looks like you had some disappointments that the class will help with
