There are some great classes starting up this month, including the lace fitted sweater from Stefanie Japel, one of my favorite knit-wear designers.Â This sweater looks so different in short and long sleeves and yarn selection really makes a difference. Check out these various versions:
The first is knitted with Rowan RYC Cashsoft Aran which is available from Knit Happens.
And here is one in Rowan All season’s cotton, also available from Knit Happens:
The class starts at St. Elmo’s on January 28th and is a great way to complete your first sweater (and learn some simple lace as well!)
And then there is the lace sock class on two circular needles.Â Â I’ve got my first one started.Â This pattern really got me hooked on knitting socks on sock weight yarn, and many of you know that I have had a long addiction to worsted weight socks because I am too lazy to knit on sock weight yarn.Â The lace pattern is easy to memorize and they went like a breeze on the circulars…I might have a new addiction.
