Why is this gorgeous scarf/shawl called Bad Oyster? Cause it ain't got no purls! Haha! Bad jokes aside, you're going to love this project. It is knit entirely in the round, and then steeked open, a cutting process that creates fringe. Join Cindy Decker-Raynak for a low-pressure intro to steeking, and create your own pearl of an accessory!

Cost: $ 38.00
If you love jewelry, then you won't be able to resist this class. Join Cindy Decker-Raynak for a wonderful introduction to knitting with beads.

You need to have experience with Fair Isle to take this class, since it will be a handout and explanation rather than sit-down knitting. P. S. If you quilt, too, we will be handing out a quilting mystery at the same time as the knitting mystery! $28 if you use your own yarn, or no charge if you buy yarn from us.

We are teaming up with Wellness in Motion Yoga Studio for a one-day retreat at Bald Eagle State Park. We will spend the morning in a yoga class, have a healthy lunch (with a slight concession to dessert!), and then spend the entire afternoon knitting by the fireplace. If you have never knitted or done yoga before, that is perfectly fine: We will be teaching both! If you have done either one or the other before, you will also be happy! Note that if you feel that you are physically unable to manage yoga, but would like an entire day to knit, we can accommodate that as well. To keep management simple, we are having signups only through the Wellness in Motion website: Go to www.wellnessinmotionstudio.com, and look under Special Events. All the details are there! The retreat will be held at the Nature Inn at Bald Eagle State Park. Our meeting room's wall of windows and its fireplace will set the day's inviting and relaxing environment. The date and time is January 15, 2017 from 10am to 4pm. Note: In case of snow, the retreat will be moved to January 29. (Overnight accommodations are also available at The Nature Inn and can be booked by calling them directly via their website.) Pre-registration is required for all participants. The early bird discount price is $80/person from now through November 30, 2016, and will go to $100/person from December 1 through January 5. After January 5, we will be unable to accept registrations. An additional $20/person fee is required for new knitters to cover the cost of materials and supplies. For the experienced knitters, we will provide a list of materials that you can bring with you. For yoga, simply wear comfortable clothing. You may want to bring along a small blanket as well. No refunds will be given, but in the event of an emergency, you may transfer your registration to a friend. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel, a full refund will be given to all. Space is limited, so sign up soon! SORRY, THIS RETREAT FILLED. YOU ARE WELCOME TO CALL WELLNESS IN MOTION TO BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST.
