Tincanknits Strange Brew Knits has been incredibly popular this winter! The book will soon be back in stock at the store, and we've decided to teach this design as a class this winter!! This is Marshland, a top down fair isle yoke sweater worked in worsted weight yarn. The class dates are: TH Jan 31, Feb 7 & 21, 7-9 pm. You need to be able to knit, purl and work in the round. That's it for this class! Let us teach you how to do your first stranded color work.

This is the classic Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern, the February Baby Sweater. If you haven't tackled an EZ pattern yet, our February Baby Sweater class is a great way to do so. Instructor Tanis helps you work through the unique pattern and sweater construction while you make this top down lace sweater. The class dates are:
TU Jan 8, 15 & 22, 7-9 pm
