We are very happy to announce that we have two new workshops on our October class schedule by a talented local designer and instructor, Kira K Dulaney.
Kira Dulaney is the designer behind K Designs, a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Kira’s designs include garments and accessories in a wide size range, featuring clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear. Kira has been teaching knitting and crochet classes in the Bay Area for eight years.
Knitting With Beads
Guest Instructor: Kira K
Saturday, October 20, 11-1p
One 2-hour class $30.00
Beads can add incredible texture to your knitting, and there are many different methods to explore. Kira will show you how to do a simple beaded cast-on, then four different ways of placing the beads on your knitting (and making sure they show on the correct side). We’ll also talk about how to add beads to almost any existing knitting pattern. Come explore this fascinating technique.
Supplies: Bring knitting needles in size 4-6 and $10 cash or check for materials fee. Yarn, beads, beading needles and crochet hook are included in materials fee.
Successful Yarn Substitution
It can be nerve-wracking to switch the yarn on a project, but sometimes necessary. Learning how to pick a successful substitute yarn means you’ll never have to abandon a pattern written for a discontinued yarn, knit a sweater too warm for the climate, or choose from a line of colors you don’t like. This class is open to both knitters and crocheters.
Supplies: 2-3 patterns that you’d like to find substitute yarns for.
To sign up for one or both of these workshops, just stop by the store or give us a call (925-943-3994).
Comments will be approved before showing up.
