Upcoming classes

I've had some requests from students to learn a couple of new techniques.
Next Wed. in both the am and pm classes, we'll learn the tubular cast on.

If you want to try it out, bring  some worsted weight yarn in two colors, Size 6,7,8 or 9 needles (7 or 8 is best), and a crochet hook.
There are several ways to work this cast on and we can explore a couple of them.

GAAA squarers: Keep up the good work on your Ann Strong square.
Seed stitch: knit your purls and purl your knits
Reverse stockinette: purl the RS knit the WS
Twisted stitch: Knit through the back loop on the RS and Purl through the back loop on the WS( video here scroll down to k tbl or p tbl)

See you all next week!
