June meeting —- Fair-Isle Project:
The project I am going to teach will be a simple fair isle headband … kinda like a ski headband. The materials needed are: 1 – 16″ size 6 circular needle and two different color worsted weight yarns. One should be a dark solid color and the other may be a solid light color or a yarn that changes colors with longer transitions like poems yarn. Also a long strand of scrap yarn to make a provisional cast on. That should be in a cotton or more slippery yarn.

Estonian Lace class
Sharon will teach Estonian Lace class on August 13 & 14.
