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
"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!"

Classroom Corner

Classroom Corner is a new feature of the Knitting in the Red newsletter. Watch this space once a month to find out about upcoming classes and workshops!

I'm Lisa Ragan, a knitting instructor at Knitting in the Red. I learned to knit about 11 years ago when one of my daughters was introduced to knitting by a friend. I had to learn to help her progress, and soon I was hooked! Since that time, I've been on a quest to continually expand my skills and find ways to share my knowledge with others. I'd love the opportunity to introduce you to knitting or help you increase your skills!

Knitting in the Red offers a variety of classes, including a number of scheduled classes on our monthly calendar, as well as individually scheduled private sessions. Fees for classes are generally $20/hour. As we build our class program, we offer a 10% discount for both you and a friend when you sign up together.

Supplies for a class are always offered at a 10% discount.

Upcoming classes include:

--Block-of-the-Month (technique squares that can be made into an afghan)
--a Mother's Day gift project
--socks on two circulars
--a spring shrug
--beginner knit

As always, if there is a particular skill you'd like to learn, just ask Jana next time you're in the shop, or email . We're always happy to schedule a class, private lesson, or help session at your convenience.

Blessings, Lisa & Jana

Sproutlette Dress
"This sweet little spring inspired dress is just the thing for the baby girl in your life! Worn on its own in the summer, or over tights and a t-shirt during the colder months, it will be a welcome addition to any baby wardrobe. A fun, playful scalloped eyelet edging on the hem and sleeves add the perfect touch of whimsy."

Sonetto Shawl

"Slightly asymmetrical in shape and design but very simple to knit.  It is cast on at one wingtip with a few stitches and then simply knit in widening rows until it is large enough or you run out of yarn, whichever comes first.  There are gradual increases along one side, touches of very easy lace and a little soothing stocking stitch.  No short rows, no counting but enough happening to keep you interested."


"RocĂ­o is the Spanish word for dew drops. So delicate and fragile. They seat on the leaves, catching the sunlight and throwing it back out.This breezy cardigan is worked from the top down, seamlessly. The sleeves are worked in the round, with short row sleeve caps."

Off the Florida Keys Shawlette

Beautiful pattern is free until 4:30 today!
"Off the Florida Keys, where the water is an unearthly vivid shade of turquoise blue, and when you go snorkeling you see an abundance of sea life, including billowy sea plumes! It could happen on a dream vacation this summer, and it is already there on this crescent shaped shawlette. The design is solid knitted lace in a deep crescent shape. Worked from the bottom up, starting with a Japanese Alternating Plume Lace Border, and moving upwards into an all-over lace body. Knit using short rows to form the crescent shape, this lightweight shawlette is sort of a hybrid between a small shawlette and a scarf"


"Rhonwen is a welsh name that means fair, slender. It is an unusual traditional name that is classically feminine yet strong. It describes this cardigan perfectly. Cables represent strength, these cables with their unusual shape mixed with lace have a feminine air. The shape of the cables on this loose fitting flowing cardigan reminds me of willow branches-fair and slender.
This cardigan is designed with positive ease, loose sleeves and an adjustable neckline. The neck can be finished so that the fronts overlap or gathered so the the fronts meet. The loose sleeves can be made more fitted by adding decreases. The length of the body and sleeves are easily adjusted."


"Camisole is knitted in pieces from the bottom up. Skirt is shaped by changing needle sizes, then further shaped in the bodice with decreases. Stitches are picked up around neck opening and cast on at shoulders, creating delicate straps. Stitches are then picked up along arm openings and straps.
German twisted and backward loop cast ons, seaming (links provided); increasing, decreasing, twisted stitches, picking up stitches, working in the round. Charts and line-by-line instructions included.
