As the temperature rises in our Georgia summers, some knitters tend to put the yarn away in favor of fun outdoor activities. Perhaps the idea of a lap full of wool seems too hot for the season. Remember that knitted projects can be small and portable...socks or a washcloth or coaster are just the thing for watching the kids at a baseball game or sitting beside the pool.

Need help with a project or a technique? We have classes! Class calendars for May and June are in the shop. We are happy to schedule custom classes or private lessons as well.

Coming up: Socks on Two Circulars, Basic Cables, introduction to lace, and a workshop on finding and fixing mistakes in your knitting.

Call the shop at 770-402-9610 to register for classes or private lessons.

Patterns of the Week

Lionberry

"A little bit of loveliness to drape around your shoulders. A textured, crescent-shaped shawl that can also be bundled about the neck as a scarf."

Starstruck

"A top for summer days ­worked at a loose gauge, it's airy in the sunshine, yet warming as soon as it gets chilly."

Lapsang Souchong


"This sock pattern features a mix of lace and cables that artfully decorate the sock leg. The pattern also features a short row heel, simple patterning on the instep and a star toe which means no fussy grafting at the end.."

If you've ever looked at any knitting pattern, you've probably seen the warning, "Save time by making a gauge swatch!" What does this mean? How do you make a gauge swatch?

It's not too late to join our workshop on GAUGE this Saturday, May 9, from 2-4 pm! In this workshop, you'll learn what gauge is and why it is so important for knitters (and occasionally why it's not). Bring several needles of different sizes and some yarn in different weights, and we'll have fun exploring the concept of gauge together.

Cost: $35

Other upcoming classes: Basic Cables on Thursday 5/14 at 11:00 a.m. and Beginner Knit on Fridays or Saturdays starting May 15 & 16. Be sure to tell your non-knitting friends about these classes, or join us for a refresher!

Patterns of the Week
Milly Tank Top

"A simply constructed tank top with the added interest of some Fair Isle that will keep even the most experienced knitter happy.Try being brave with your colour choices to ensure that a new baby prince or princess is stylish and warm. As with all stranded knitting, try to keep your 'floats' at the back of the work quite loose, particularly over the spot pattern as pulling too tightly will result in puckered fabric."

Made to Border

"Our third pattern from Designer in Residence Fiona Ellis, Made to Border, is a cute little cap sleeve cardigan perfect for throwing on over a tank top. The main feature of this design is the border patterning which gradually morphs into gradually diminishing cables. The top is completed with simple edging and a knitted tie closure."


Pattern is 3.99 on Ravelry

Knitangle


"Knitangle is a simple triangular shawl, inspired by Zentangle.
Zentangle is an abstract drawing using different repetative patterns.

This shawl evokes the atmosphere of Zentangle by different irregularly arranged patterns. Consequently each row is different, so knitting needs lots of attentions."

Patterns of the Week
 

Rum Daisy




"I've been playing with shawl construction lately, so this one is a bottom up crescent with short rows to create extra depth at center. Detail is heavy at bottom for a satisfying weight, and stockinette and more delicate lace stripes at top create a lighter fabric for draping around the neck."









A tee

"Contiguous recipe for an A line tee with lace sleeves and half back. Short rows are used to shape neckline, shoulder "seams" and bottom of back. Front of tee is shorter than back.
I walk you through step by step on how to make the perfect fitting tee to your size requirements.
I provide cast on sts for sizes 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, and 44 to help you get started. From there all you need to do is follow the recipe to a perfect fit!"


Cherry Blossom Cowl


"Celebrating the art of Kate Slaby of Spencer,WI, our signature yarn inspiration is from her piece, Japanese Cherry Blossoms. We have incorporated simple and optional bead knitting into the design with this easy bead placement technique. Cables bordered by a bit of lace work and beads, twist throughout the cowl, resembling the tree trunk, branches, and blossoms of this lovely painting. Please enjoy the pattern!"

Does anybody remember those books that were popular a few years ago called "choose your own adventure?" The book went to a certain point, and then the author would say, "If you think "this" is the next thing that happened, go to page X, and if you think "that" is what happened, go to page Y." By making his own choices, the reader was able to determine how the book ended.

At Knitting in the Red, we're going to have "Choose Your Own Adventure" knitting classes!   If there's a technique you want to learn, a pattern you're struggling with, or some knitting concept you don't understand, sign up for a one-hour lesson to meet your need.

In May, Choose Your Own Adventures are scheduled on Wednesday, May 20 from 6-7:00 p.m, and on Saturday, May 23, from 11-12:00. Please call the shop no later than Saturday, May 16, with your desired topic, so that materials and a good lesson can be planned. These classes will be limited, so sign up soon.

Patterns of the Week
Anemoi
"A fun little cardigan perfect for layering during cool spring days and for air-conditioned work spaces in summer, featuring capped raglan lace sleeves. The fronts are simple stockinette to keep the cardi appropriate for work, but the top part of the back is worked in the same lace pattern as the sleeves."





Summer shawl

"My inspiration for this delicate shawl was overgrown rockery next to my apartment house (which is not so delicate). Each spring this rockery is buried under the Lily of the Valley and I absolutely adore it. This means that spring is officially here.
I wanted to reflect the nature of this flower - tenderness, hope and promise of new beginnings. And remember the smell? Too bad I can't put the fragrant of this blossom in my knitting."

Shells n' Flowers Baby Caps


"Dress up your babies with these adorable hats. You have a choice of 2 lovely interchangeable flowers, that are included in this pattern. By changing the yarn weight and colors, you can have a large selection of different flowers. This pattern is written in US terms.
The pattern includes 2 versions of hats with 3 border variations and many sizes!"
