"MUD" means "mosaic ugly duckling": This hat is designed to show off those variegated yarns that you might not have liked in other projects. Add some contrasting yarn as a background, and that previously ugly yarn looks fantastic! The hat knits up quickly, and requires only one color of yarn on each round?no Fair Isle skills needed! The rest of the stitches are merely slipped. Tina?s made five of them. (So far.) We think you?ll enjoy them just as much! Cost: $32 plus supplies. Supplies: The pattern is on Ravelry. You?ll need either bulky or worsted-weight yarn, and the needles to match the yarn. Make an appointment to come see us to get some help choosing the perfect colors. Wednesday and Thursday nights, Feb. 10 & 11, from 6-7 and 6-8, respectively, on Zoom. (We'll start the ribbing the first night, then learn mosaic the next night.)

Cost: $ 32.00
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. Thursdays, Jan. 28, Feb. 25, Mar. 25, no class in April, May 13, June 24, July 22, Aug. 12, Sept. 2, Oct. 14, Nov. 18, and Dec. 9. All from 6-8 PM on Zoom.

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.

You can create magical color changes by holding together two strands of fingering-weight yarn. Cindy will show you ideas for changing things up when you make a plain hat! If you?re a new knitter who knows how to knit and purl, you can take this class. Cost: $32 plus supplies. Supplies: The Scrappy Marl pattern is on Ravelry. You'll want lots of fingering-weight scraps (about 300 yards total) or gradient packs. You?ll also need 16" sizes 4 and 6 needles. Tuesdays, Jan. 19 & Feb. 2, 6-8 PM on Zoom.

Cost: $ 32.00
Eleanor loves making socks! She?ll find a new pattern each month to work on, and we?ll tackle it together. This is a chance to use some of that sock yarn you couldn't resist buying!
