the summer sun rises into the sky, our cares & worries fade away
with the drifting clouds. Barefoot and carefree, we revert to a more
bohemian style. Fresh herbs and sunlight in our water, blissful moments.
Fringe, neutrals, and eyelets perfect for balmy days and soaking up
and lacy, this shoulderette is knit in a fingering weight yarn with a
ginkgo leaf border. It's perfect for casually wrapping around the neck
or draping over the shoulders on crisp autumn or chilly spring days,
and elegant enough for an evening wrap as well."
"Easy, roll-top ankle socks perfect for summer knitting and wearing.
socks are knit from the top down, with a tradition heel flap and heel
turn and three size options. It's a great pattern for a beginner sock
knitter, and a fun quick knit for more advanced sock knitters. This sock
is perfect for super bright, variegated yarns, they add a fun pop of
color to any summer outfit!"

am a long-time homeschool mom, and am also a knitting instructor at
Knitting in the Red, a fairly new yarn shop in the Hickory Flat area of
currently considering the possibility of offering summer "camps" for
homeschooled students, as well as ongoing classes during the school
year, to be held at the yarn shop. Each camp would run Tuesday- Friday, either July 14-17, 21-24, or 28-31 , from 9:00-12:00,
and would be $125, supplies included. (I would need a minimum of 4
students to run the camps, and a maximum of 10). I can take students
from age 8 through high school seniors, but would need to break up the
groups, possibly running separate camps for age 8-12 and 13-18, in order
to maximize the learning for each group.
camp would focus on learning to knit, but would include educational
information on wool, spinning and dyeing, and where our yarn and
textiles come from. Depending on the students and interest level, we
could include an introduction to spinning and/or crochet.
the fall (school year), I'd like to design a program that would
combine regular weekly knitting classes with education on the history
of knitting and textiles, some geography related to sheep and where
they come from, etc. I have not yet determined a pricing structure for
the fall classes, but it will be comparable to other homeschool classes
offered in the area.
I will be sending to those who respond, detailed information as it becomes available.
Thanks for reading,
If you are interested in either of these possibilities, please respond directly to me at email@example.com

Blood is a dramatic crescent shaped shawl positively dripping with
lace, cables, beads and nupps. This shawl is inspired by the gorgeous
ruby red colour of a beautiful yarn - a rich blue based red with just a
hint of pink. Knitsch Sock: The Mad Blood Stirreth.
luscious scarf uses two-color brioche with increases and decreases as
well as two-color garter stitch. It's the textural differences of these
two stitch patterns that causes the lattice web to float above the
garter stitch background."
Blossoms Top is the perfect Spring or Summer top! It is knit from the
top-down with raglan sleeves and features a pretty lace pattern on the
front and sleeves. It can be knit with short or 3/4 long sleeves.
Options for two slightly different lace patterns are included and are
charted and written out."

for an easy to carry summer vacation project? Mrs. Blandings is a
boomerang shaped shawl that uses 2 skeins of sock yarn. Garter stripes
are alternated with a modified Indian pillar stitch, both of which keep
the shawl straightforward to knit and simple to put down and pick up
again without losing track of your stitches."
