Featured Yarn and Pattern
A gorgeous gradient yarn and a stunning pattern to knit with it? Yes please! Katia's Infinity Shawl yarn is a beautifully soft gradient with colors that are rich enough to look fabulous with any kind of texture knitting. It's a light DK - you could use it with DK or Fingering-weight patterns. And what better than a gorgeous lace stole? We love this one - the Inara Shawl (any Firefly fans out there?) by Ambah O'Brien! Perfect pairing? We agree.

The Tip Jar
To keep the wonky join on your old circular needle from snagging on your yarn, try the Teflon Tape Trick. Get out that plumber's tape (sometimes called "thread seal tape") leftover from installing your showerhead, break off an inch-ish bit, and wrap it around the bad spot on your needle, where it will happily cling. TA-DA! Now your stitches slide by easily!

Weaving-Breaking All the Rules
Saturdays, December 15 & 29 from 10 am-4 pm, $96
Remember all the rules Debbi taught you for yarn selection in your beginning weaving class? In this class, you get to forget most of them! We'll break as few or as many of the rules as you want, but Debbi will show you how to weave with different thicknesses, different textures, different colors, and finish up by using your beginning warp as your ending weft.
Mind blown yet? The end result is a scarf/poncho/cowl fabric that has no beginning and no end. It's not quite circular and very, very unusual. (Caryn has had folks try to buy hers while she's worn it on business trips....)
Session 1 will include warping and some weaving; Session 2 will include using the beginning warp as ending weft; make sure you finish weaving the bulk of the project during the week in between classes!
Two 6-hour sessions
