Lazy, hot and humid summer days are s-l-o-w-i-n-g us down.
That's all right. But, if you get a hankering for some company while you knit,
we have a few classes happening this month in our air conditioned studio.
Our MONDAY KNIT NITE group is tackling lace knitting now and then fair isle knitting later this month
and they are chatting about sweaters and socks for the fall.
Become a regular (there is no charge if you purchase your yarns at Countrywool)
and vote on the NEXT project we tackle together.
Our FULL MOON FINISH class is a perfect place to tidy up loose ends in your projects.
And registration opens TOMORROW, August 15, for our FALL KNITTING weekend:
The best of Elizabeth Zimmermann' s KNITTING WORKSHOP Retreat
Winter Clove Inn, Round Top, NY              November 16, 17 & 18, 2018
