This class is for new knitters who know only how to knit and purl, and maybe just a WEE bit more. (Important: If you do not know how to do those two stitches, please take Knitting 101 instead of this class.) Are you tired of making only the knit-stitch scarf you're seeing here? Would you like to learn a little more now so that you can make all the coolest things? We have just the class for you! Join Cynthia for a "Knitting Adventure Year." We'll use her Really Clear patterns to learn how to do everything from cables to Fair Isle to intarsia. If you don't know what those are, that's okay! We'll get you going! Cost: $60 plus supplies. Supplies: You'll need to buy the pattern each month, and the supplies for the project. Cynthia will send out a supply note about a week before each class. To buy the patterns, sign up for a Ravelry account at www.ravelry.com or get them at the shop when you buy the yarn.

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! Cost: $60 plus supplies. Supplies: We'll get supply lists as we go along throughout the year. Thursdays, Jan. 21, Feb 18, Mar. 18, no class in April, May 13, no class in June, July 15, Aug. 19, Sept. 30, Oct. 14, Nov. 11, Dec. 16. Your choice of 9-11 AM or 6-8 PM on Zoom.
