Spring 2016 Classes!

We have some fantastic classes coming up at Stix and Stones and would love for you to join in on the fun!

Magic Loop Circular Knitting
Saturday June 4, 2016 
3:00pm to 4:30pm
$25/person
Skill level: basic- must know how to knit and purl!
Description:
Never use double point needles again! Magic loop is a fantastic technique that will forever eliminate your use of double pointed needles by using one long circular needle to knit small circumference items in the round! You can swap our your DPN’s for the magic loop technique on ANY project including (but not at all limited to): socks- both top down AND toe up, mitts, fingerless gloves, sleeves, the top of hats and just about anything else that originally asks for DPN’s. Many people find it difficult to knit with so many needles joined in the round and when using double point needles you are often using up to 5 needles at one time! We teach you how to get cast on, set up and start knitting using the magic loop technique.... and there is only a LITTLE magic involved. Check out our socks from the toe up class below and take this technique to that class as well!
Please bring: 32” or longer circular needles and yarn to match


Socks from the toe up!
Saturday June 18, 2016 
1:30pm to 4:30pm
$45/person
Skill level: enthusiastic beginner- must know how to knit and purl, increase and decrease!
Description:
Have you mastered the art of knitting socks from the top down and are you ready for a new challenge? Try out our socks from the toe up class and learn some great new techniques! Just as it sounds- we will be knitting a tiny sample sized sock... from the toe up! During this class we will cast on at the toe, knit the foot, turn the heel, knit the cuff and cast off at the top all while discussing the benefits of knitting a sock in the opposite direction! You will come out of this class with a tiny sock- perfect for baby gifts or add a ribbon and use it as a decoration or ornament!
Please bring: A DK weight or heavier yarn with double point needles to match OR 32” circulars for magic loop
