This bag contains the WIP for the next Firefly Fibers KAL and it is going to be fabulous!
2 Classes. 2 Skill Levels. Tons of Fun!
I can’t say it any better myself so I’m re-posting Sarah’s post about our upcoming Learn to Knit and Stranding classes. Thanks Sarah!
Knitting is in the air, so treat yourself to a class at Firefly Fibers! We have a couple classes coming up next week that still have a seat or two left in them — it’s not too late to sign up, so let me tempt you with their awesomeness & let’s get you knitting!
Learn to Knit
There isn’t much more fun than being able to give handmade gifts at the holidays. Now is your chance to learn knitting, just in time to make a few beautiful gifts for your loved ones … or yourself! There are still a couple seats available in my Learn to Knit class at Firefly Fibers starting Tuesday, September 20th from 6pm - 8pm. We’ll meet 2 consecutive Tuesdays & cover the basics of knitting you need to get rolling on lots of fun projects. No experience is necessary, but do come ready to have fun & learn a lot!
If you know how to knit & are looking for a new challenge, try stranding! Stranding is the method of multi-color knitting commonly used to make those beautiful traditional Nordic sweaters, mittens, hats, socks, etc, among other things, of course. It means holding working yarn in both hands — at the same time! It may sound a little crazy, but the most common comment I get from students regarding this technique is that it is much easier than they expected! Have you only ever used one hand to hold your yarn? No problem! Stranding is a really fun way to add Continental or English style to your repertoire. Class will be Saturday, September 24th, from 10:30am - 1:30pm. Check out the website here for prerequisites.
If you are interested, check out the website for more information (and the other current class offerings, too!) or contact Alisa at the shop. If you have friends who knit or would like to learn, please let them know about these great opportunities!
If you can’t make it to one of the classes, still do stop in & check out the selection of beautiful yarns. The shelves are full & ready to supply all your projects. The moment you walk in the door, you’ll see why I think Firefly Fibers is the premier local yarn shop in South Central Wisconsin!
