This workshop is SOLD OUT. Sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page to learn about upcoming classes or register for our Hand Crocheted Blanket Workshop in June!

Join us Thursday May 24th, 2018 at 7p for our new Giant Knit Blanket Workshop with Cara Corey Designs. Learn how to make a dreamy super thick and cozy knit blanket out of wool roving, plus tips and techniques for caring for these blankets. No knitting experience required! Knit and crochet designer Cara Corey will show you how to use a "table knitting" technique, forming the stitches with your hands rather than using knitting needles. 

In this class you will also learn:

• How to source additional wool roving
• How to graft ends together by needle felting
• How to care for the wool, and use felting to prevent it from fuzzing too much
• Where to buy giant knitting needles (if you decide you want them) and how to make your own giant needles out of PVC pipe

he yarn we provide is enough wool roving to make a blanket approximately 30x50 inches in size with a lot of stretch. Please choose a color from the color swatch photo when you check out. Color choices are: Cream, Seal, Charcoal, Aubergine, Candy Pink, and Mallard. The deadline for choosing a color is May 9th. After that you can still purchase the class, but you will receive the cream color. 

This two hour class also includes wine and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that night. Workshop includes all yarn/materials in price.
