Starry Starry Night Shawl/Scarf

                                                    36" OR 44" AROUND SHOULDERS
........Here are two pictures of the Shawl/Scarf I am working on and planning to hold  classes in October. I have almost finished knitting the first 250 yard skein of Panda Mania Sox Yarn from Done Roving. I am using 2  40"  circular needles rather than only one using the Magic Loop method. I started w/ML but when you pull your Loop to turn around, there is a much greater chance of loose stitches. So I have found it easier and more efficient to use 2 circs. It is still pretty hard to stretch it out enough for you to really see the pattern well. Plus it truly will need to be blocked to get the full beauty of the piece.

As I stated previously, the class is a 2 hour session, the first on October 13th, with a repeat Class on October 20th, both Saturdays from 11 to 1:00, shop opens at 10 for PREP..... the cost is $45 which includes the $7 pattern...We have a large selection of Sox Yarns for your choosing and plenty of #6 or #7  x 40" Circular Needles. You will need 2 in different colors, materials, whatever, so you can distinguish one from the other. I am also working on a small Sample for your viewing, to futher understand the method...Not difficult but not for a novice knitter. Please Call and Sign Up Soon since I am only accepting 5 students for each class. I do not want anyone to feel they aren't getting a "Fair" piece of me!!  Shop Hours...W-Th-F-S  10 to 4....887-8550
