Description: Dishcloths are the humble workhorses of the kitchen and around the house. Hand-knit dishcloths are a whole other ballgame! They last a long time, are lovely, and, when you make your own, you can match your décor or use team colors! We will use the Ballband Dishcloth pattern, which requires two colors of yarn. Don’t worry – it’s much easier and more impressive than it looks! Join us to make the perfect housewarming gift. Materials: Size 7 knitting needles of any style and 100% cotton worsted weight yarn, two balls, each approx. 122 yards.

The 17th Annual World's Largest Textile Garage Sale! - I'm not teaching or anything, I just don't want to miss it!
Class: Adventures in Knitting
Description: Come join us for our very own knitter's workshop! Students can choose from four projects. You bring the yarn and needles and the teacher, Lara Neel, will bring the patterns and make sure that you have a great time making a project you will treasure or love to give as a gift! This class is perfect for knitters of all levels, even if you've taken a break from knitting for several years or are trying it for the first time. If you're confused by the material list or have questions about the projects, come to the first class and Lara will get you started. You can then purchase supplies before the second class.
Projects to choose from:
1. Hat (great for beginners) – about 220 yards of worsted-weight yarn and two set of size 7 needles: a 16-inch circular and double-pointed needles.
2. Slippers – about 380 yards of worsted-weight yarn and a set of size 9 needles, any type of needle is fine.
