At Knitting in the Red, we're looking ahead to the fall with our classroom calendar. Of course, we have plenty of summer classes going on, from small-project technique classes to beginner knit, to two-at-a time socks. But as we plan for fall, we want to plan classes to meet YOUR needs! So, now is the time to get involved and tell us what YOU want to learn.

Is there a particular project you'd like to work on? Do you need help learning a new technique? Want to get a head start on hand knitted Christmas gifts? Come into the store and fill out our survey, or simply email us at jknitsalot@gmail.com to let us know, and we'll try to get your class on the calendar!

Tip of the Week

Classroom Corner 5/20

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."
