Weekend Away #9
Mar 6 @ 3:00 pm – Mar 8 @ 12:00 pm

Join us from March 6 through March 8 for our 9th annual Weekend Away as we explore Gradients, Fades, and Transitionswith Gwen Bortner!

Gwen BortnerGradients, fades and transitions – different names for yarns and kits that create a similar look – beautiful fabric moving through a range of colors. What might come as a surprise is you can create your own transitional fabric, in your own choice of colors with minimal stress and maximum success. The secret is understanding a few “formulas” for combining yarns and a couple of simple guidelines for selecting colors. And the best news is that the knitting is easy! Think stockinette, seed stitch, moss stitch, or garter. Come for a relaxing weekend of knitting as we explore all things gradient.

We will begin by playing with color and discussing the advantages of working with multiple strands of very fine yarns to create a dynamic fabric. Next we will discuss some of the tricks and a few “no-fail” formulas for moving from one color to the next. All the while we will be creating a one-of-a-kind cowl (or scarf) in your own personally designed, signature gradient  fabric. Join the fun and see all the fabulous options that are waiting when you take control of your own gradient!

As a bonus, all the yarn you’ll need for the class is included! In addition, you’ll receive a 20% discount on all non-sale items you purchase that weekend.

Learn to Knit Socks

© tincanknits

We’re SOLD OUT!

Always wanted to make a pair of socks? Maybe you tried once and it didn’t go well? Maybe it looks too complicated? This is your chance to get past that fear and learn how to make socks!

Socks are a fun, portable, functional item beloved by many knitters. Learning to make socks involves a number of steps, so we’ve broken the class into 2 sessions 4 weeks apart, giving you lots of time to work on your socks.

In this class we will learn about sock construction as well as explore various methods and techniques by working on a pair of socks that fit! We will learn each of the steps to create socks to include: casting on; working in the round; turning the heel; working the sock gusset; working the foot of the sock; and finally finishing the toe.

We will review the three methods of knitting socks: using double points; using two circular needles; and using one circular needle, also known as “magic loop”. We will also discuss knitting socks using the “toe-up” method.

In the class, we will knit our socks using double points, the oldest method of making socks. We will also work from the top of the leg down to the toe. The techniques you learn in this class will apply to all three methods.

NOTE: The class will meet in two 3 hour sessions allowing for time in between the sessions to work on your socks. The dates are Saturday March 14 and Saturday April 11. Both from 9AM to Noon.

By taking the class, you’ll receive:

  • 1 skein of Manos del Uruguay Alegria – enough to make the pair of socks (a $26 value)
  • “Knit Socks! 17 Classic Patterns for Cozy Feet” by Betsy Lee McCarthy (a $14.95 value)
  • Free “Rye Light” sock pattern by Tin Can Knits
  • A 20% Discount on all non-sale items that day.
  • That’s over $40 worth of products!

What you’ll need to bring:

  • 1 set of US1/2.25mm double point needles
  • 1 set of US2/2.75mm double point needles
  • darning needle
  • stitch markers

Prerequisites:
You should be able to cast-on, knit, purl, and bind off without assistance.

Pricing: 89.00 for both days
