As you may know, Cynthia designs knitting patterns (along with quilting patterns!). This class provides you with an interesting adventure into learning new things while you find any part of the pattern that isn't "really clear." We've had such fun in these classes for the past few years, working through her new ideas. This is a chance to play with surprise patterns, and to make requests for patterns you've always wanted (no guarantees on that one!). What we do each year is a bit of a mystery (even to her!). You might want to go to reallyclear.com to see patterns she's designed in the past. Join us in the fun! Supplies: Cynthia will let you know the supplies before each class. (For the first class, she is still debating between a couple of ideas! Stay tuned!) Time: Thursdays, Jan. 27, Feb. 24, Apr. 21, May 26, June 23, July 28, Aug. 25, Oct. 27, Dec. 1.
