The atmosphere will be helpful and no pressure! Mistakes are welcome and important for learning…so there are no dumb mistakes!

PAINTING WITH YARN: HOW TO ‘DOODLE’ YOUR WAY TO A SHAWL
Saturday, 3/30 1:00-4:00pm Instructor: Sherri Hruby Cost: $35.00
Back by popular demand!!! Let your inner creative out, or fake it until you make it (the shawl, that is)! Learn this easy way to start a shawl and add to it with short rows that let you “paint” with the colors of your yarn. The result will be curved rows of knitting, deliberate pools of color, and a beautiful one-of-a-kind creation that you’ve made. We’ll start the shawl shape and learn the “doodle knitting” technique you can easily use to create the rest of the shawl in free form. If you’re good at the knit stitch, you can do this! This is an ADVANCED BEGINNER class (8 people max; supplies not included)
