Master lace knitting one section at a time!

This is the 3rd series of building blocks classes from Michelle “Knit Purl” Hunter.  Legions of knitters have completed projects using her earlier books, Building Blocks and Building in Color.  We offered a Building in Color Series of Classes, taught by Jan Malone, and now Jan is excited to be your guide through this series of lace knitting classes.

This book and class series are designed to take the casual or beginning lace knitter to an experienced level.  Beginning with lace basics, you’ll move through the major lace techniques in a sequence that makes sense.

You’ll knit a gorgeous sampler shawl as a wearable showcase of your lace skills.  Each section focuses on a technique to broaden your understanding of this genre, and builds on the skills you’ve learned in prior lessons.  The sections include classic favorites, original designs, and even some beading!

Join in for one or all of the classes.  They are $20 each.  We’ll meet weekly, but there are some catch up skipped weeks built in too:  Classes are Saturday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:30

Please call the shop to register for this class in advance! (303) 761-9231
