HOLIDAY KNIT 1: STOCKINGS • Advanced Beginner Knitting, October 13 & 20 (3-5 pm) Saturdays$0.00
Add a little sparkle and handmade happiness to your holiday mantel! This holiday stocking by our favorite fanciful yarn company Knit Collage is made from soft, super bulky, handspun wool yarn with twinkly bits and bobs in a full spectrum of color options to compliment whatever your holiday decor might be. Add pompoms, tassels, and a jingle bell to give it even more personality! It's a super fast project, so go ahead and knit one for everyone celebrating in your home.
Here at Cattywampus, we are all about the joy and specialness of having a handmade holiday, which is made even better when making together! We are offering a different knit and crochet project every month in October, November, and December in preparation for the holidays. Each one is intended to be a fairly easy pattern so that you can make more than one by the end of each month. We will meet up three times a month for each project, although we have priced the class as if it was just meeting up once... so you get 3 classes for the price of 1! Come all 3 times or just once. There is a class instruction option for those who need support and guidance throughout the project ($30, 3-4 pm) or a knit/crochet-a-long option for confident knitters/crocheters who simply want camaraderie (free, 4-5 pm). You will have the chance to win a $30 gift certificate raffle prize on the last day of each project. Raffle tickets are earned by showing up to the scheduled dates and for every completed project. The more you come and the more you make... the greater your chances are to win! There will be a grand raffle prize of $100 at the end of all the holiday projects on Friday, December 21st at our knit group Cattywampus Christmas party.
