Shetland IIslands - The Skinny on Lace
- Aug 25, 2017 06:00 pm

While it's true that any type of yarn can be used to make lace and that there are many wonderful works made from heavier yarns, there is something special about a lace shawl made from laceweight yarn. If you've admired light weight shawls that lift with a gentle breeze and weigh next to nothing but felt intimidated by wispy yarn, it's time to get your skinny on. Learn the basics of triangle shawl knitting and start your own lace-weight shawl in class. We'll discuss chart reading symbols, pattern repeat boxes, odd and even rows, no stitch, yarn choices and life-lines. You'll learn the basics of lace shawl construction. By the time class is over you will have a start on your very own lace shawl and the confidence to complete it.

Cost: $ 65.00
Not all Shetland shawls are knit from skinny yarn and can pass through a wedding ring. While we love those that do, the traditional Shet-land Hap Shawl is generally knit in fingering weight yarn in the natural colors of true Shetland bred sheep. We'll discuss traditional techniques and color place-ment in class and work on a swatch to learn the basics of modern Half Hap Shawl construction.

Cost: $ 65.00
Shetland IIslands - Shetland Sky & Sea
- Aug 26, 2017 02:00 pm

The themes of sky and sea are frequently represented in Shetland designs. Would you expect anything less from the beautiful but hard-to-reach islands located where the Atlantic Ocean meets the North Sea? In this fine lace class weíll look at two specific Shetland stitches, the Birdís Eye and the Cockleshell. Both stitches require a bit of concentration but are well worth the effort when a traditional Shetland lace shawl is your goal.

Cost: $ 65.00
Whether you learned about Pi Shawls from reading an Elizabeth Zimmermann book, from seeing them in Ravelry, or admiring them on display in a museum, you already know they are round and use the precision of the mathmatical forumula Pi for increasing the size of the shawl. Donít let that math scare you! A Pi Shawl always starts in the center and grows circumfer-ence. You will learn the Emily Ocker cast on, then using an easy-to-understand mathematical formula and stitch dictionaries, weíll begin a shawl swatch using lace weight merino supplied by the teacher. Circular shawls are particularly fun because they are knit in the round. The ďrestĒ rounds are knit rather than purled, so progress is quickly made. We will discuss tips on choosing stitch patterns to enlarge your swatch, blocking and various ways to wear a circular shawl. Note: If you are proficient using the Magic Loop method, feel free to bring a circular needle the appropriate size although we will NOT be learning or dis-cussing Magic Loop in this class.

Cost: $ 65.00
Circles of Light Shawl
- Aug 29, 2017 06:30 pm

This beautiful lace-weight shawl is worked entirely in the round but surprisingly, its shape is a beautiful crescent. Bird's eye lace is so easy to knit when all stitches are worked on the right side. The knitting starts in the middle of the shawl with Judy's magic cast on and then is worked in one piece, shaped with some increases and decreases, then bound off at the top and bottom edges. It is a delightful twist on a crescent shawl.

Cost: $ 40.00
