Knitting With Friends®  Medium T-Shirt - Sheep Design in Fuchsia

These t-shirts are fantastic! Soft and fun! Notice in the picture, that these cute and fuzzy sheep are not just knitting, but knitting "with" friends! And, who would think that not only sheep knit, but alpacas and yaks knit too!

Great colors (hot pink, light pink, gray, teal, light blue and purple), great sizes (M-2XL) and a great price!

And, need a card for your knitting friends...... Knitting with Friends has a variety of greeting cards and all are blank inside for your own personal message and is card is packaged with an envelope and wrapped in cellophane. My favorite is the "Knit New Baby" Card which reads... Dolly, Honey, I don't think it's done this way! Very funny!

ELEGANT KNIT Book (written in Japanese)

JAPANESE LACE KNITTING PATTERNS INTERPRETED - Understanding the Lace Knitting Patterns of Naoko & Kazuko Ichida with Sandy Terp of Moonrise Lace Knitting.
This class will help you use these sometimes challenging charts. As we work with several of the patterns by Naoko & Kazuko Ichida you will come to understand how to read and understand their charts. We will rechart into Lace Shorthand, which for these charts, uses a semi-circle chart for the beginning, than a panel chart for the remainder. This workshop will teach you how to rechart any lace pattern in any language. You will be able to truly understand how the stitches are put together to form the pattern. This workshop is appropriate for intermediate to advanced lace knitters who are looking for something challenging and new to learn.
April 4 and 5, 10:00 - 5:00 - Just a few spots left for this class that takes place this weekend.... call now!
