if you've read yesterday's post about my current kal, then you'll see i'm starting out my knitting year with a challenge, and i'm really having fun with it so far! it's great that i'm doing this with others, too.. because it's such a nice thing to have the encouragement of others :) especially if these people are going through it with you, right?
well guess what, knitting classes at the cloth castle are starting up in just two weeks! the very first being offered is a learning to knit series!
the projects that we'll me knitting include a two toned scarf, a smooshy warm hat, and fingerless mitts! perfect for this chilly winter ahead of us :)

these really are fantastic patterns to learn from and to knit with. so if you're interested in learning to knit, or know of anyone who is... please head on over to the cloth castle, and sign up!
classes start in just two weeks! and of course, i'd love to knit with you. there's that too :)
and speaking of trying new things... i did my first felted project. it was fun!! and we're also considering it to be a class as well!
these knit up fairly quickly, and used galway worsted yarn. (by diamond) i think i'd like to add a strap across... something to help the slipper stay on my narrow feet a little more.. how cute!!
yep. these are a fun pattern, and i bet you'd look super cute wearing these too! ;)
so what do you say? ready to learn a new skill? you already fabulous knitters out there know of anyone who would love learning? (and lives in the area ...lol)... send them my way! i promise these classes are a lot of fun! this is the year to take charge! to learn new things, and to embark on new adventures! wanna knit?! xoxoxo also, on a side note... it's pouring rain out.. and i'm about to go out for a run. wish me luck! xo
