During this class, you will learn to knit two socks at one time, from the top down. You should already be comfortable using the the Magic Loop method for knitting in the round.
I have chosen the Broad Spiral Rib sock pattern by Tracey Ewing because of the construction. You will learn to knit a cable without a using a cable needle, her process for turning the heel is very decorative as well as the star toe finishing. It is a free download on Ravelry.
Materials: Approximately 480 yards of sport weight sock yarn.
Size US #3, 47 inch circular needle, and darning needle.
Cost: $45.00 – Three session, two hour class.
As with all our classes, you will receive a 10% discount on all materials. Check our calendar for dates and call The Fibre Studio to reserve your spot.
While perusing Ravelry, I came across this free Berroco pattern called Wren. The pattern was published in June, 2008 and used a yarn (Zodiac) long ago discontinued by Berroco; however, it has great lines.
I thought what a cute spring cardigan this would be knit using Berroco Maya. It could be worn pinned, as shown, or open with the shawl collar. I am thinking I may update the pattern a bit and add seed stitch instead of ribbing. (You know I can never knit a pattern without changing it.)

As many of you are aware, I love Churchmouse Yarns & Teas patterns. Their Koigu Beaded Beret is well written and easy to follow. During our three day, 1 hour class, you will learn the Magic Loop method for knitting in the round as well as a inovative way to knit with beads. Once you see how easy this technique is, you will be adding beads to everything you knit. We will use approximately 300 yards of fingering weight yarn and a 47 inch #3 needle.
The class fee is $35.00, please call The Fibre Studio to reserve your spot.
What color is your elephant?
When knitters get together, we always tip toe around the “Elephant” in the room – our unfinished projects. So The Fibre Studio has set side our open Sundays to wrangle in our herd of Elephants!
Join us the second Sunday of each month from 1-6p. There are no worries of our Elephants becoming extinct, I have a herd of my own and they are multiplying like rabbits! I am referred to around here as the Pachyderm Princess.
This is a great portable, one skein, quick knit project. During this class, you will master the Moebius cast-on. The cowl is knit using a soft, chunky yarn (Noro Nadeshiko, you may also use Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande or Misty Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky) on a size 11 needle so you can finish several before the holidays.
This is a two day, two hour class, check our calendar for available dates.
Materials: 1 skein chunky yarn,
Size #11 needle with 47 inch cable
