Knitting and Crochet


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. Sometimes the simplest pattern yields the most beautiful results, and that's this case with this bracelet. As long as you have knit a few things and have just a bit of patience, then knitting on the small needles will be a breeze!

Cost: $ 38.00

We're going to give out a mystery clue about once a week. You take it home and make the hat from it. By the end, you will have a Christmas hat ready for the holidays! 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.
