Good morning, my favorite knitters and crocheters!  As promised, here is a list of the classes Woolworks will be running in the month of February. In the spirit of the new year, we have geared most of our classes those of you who are new to the exciting world of fiber!  We can't tell you how pleased we are to see all the new faces coming into our shop.  We can't wait to help you through this wonderful journey of knitting and crocheting.


Hats are a fantastic way to learn how to knit. They are a fun accessory that jazz up any outfit as well as keeping you warm.  This pattern will teach you how to knit, purl, and decrease, all important skills that will open up the doors to a long knitting career.

WHEN: Wednesday, February 13th and 20th
TIME: 12:30 pm - 2:00pm
FEE: 5 dollars a class


This extremely versatile, stretch hat is very popular with our crocheters who do a lot for charity.  Because they work up so quickly, this hat is a great way for the community to get together to make cherished pieces for babies, children and adults alike.  Woolworks has a strong affiliation with Day Kimball Hospital.  Together, we try to collect as many hats, mittens and scarves to help people in need during the cold winter months.  If you want to learn to crochet, this is the perfect class to sign up for.

WHEN: Thursday, February 21st and 28th
TIME: 12:30 pm - 2:00pm
FEE: 5 dollars per class


Even though this hat looks complicated to new knitters, it's actually a very easy hat to make!  This is a great way for beginner knitters to move into colorwork without having to worry about twisting the yarn.  The great thing about Mosaic knitting is that you are only working with one color at a time, so you don't ever have to concern yourself with your yarn getting tangled up as you work.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 12th and 19th
TIME: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
FEE: 5 dollars a class


I always loved the look of broomstick lace and I love buttons, so I started designing this little cowl just so I could teach the class!  Broomstick lace is an art form that  is over a century old.  Women used to sit by the fire after a long day of work and caring for their families and crochet gorgeous heirlooms.  The open look came from looping stitches on a broom handle and crocheting them off. Come and learn this whimsical form of crochet with me.

WHEN: Sunday, February 17th and 24th
TIME: 2:00pm - 4:00 pm
FEE: 5 dollars a class

That's what's in store for you for the month of February! We hope to see you all soon!

In the meantime, happy knitting and crocheting to all of you!
