Lace Bootcamp
4 Weeks of guided lessons with scheduled chats & classroom camaraderie.  Each class runs a full calendar month.  This class could change your entire knitting outlook!

Are you scared of charts? Go on, be honest — do you cringe when you see one staring you in the face? In this class you’ll get a NEW introduction to chart reading which will allow you to perfect your chart reading skills. Written instructions can have typos, but with a chart what you see is what you get, which is why it’s the best option for knitters who want to “see” what their lace will look like before they take up their needles.

In this class we will knit a few simple lace panels, the start of Annie’s Wavy Lace Scarf from Romantic Hand Knits. The pattern will be included in the class materials.

 

Twisted Float Shrug
4 Weeks of guided lessons with scheduled chats & classroom camaraderie, and you should be well on our way to completing my popular Twisted Float Shrug.

It's a fun knit, one of my most fun pattern, and I'm hopeful that you'll begin to mistress all of the tips that will make this a most enjoyable experience!

This sweater will fit ANY bust size, seriously. This pattern is not sized in a traditional, standard way, but you determine the sizing based on two simple measurements; the cross-front measurement (from armhole seam to armhole seam in when wearing a fitted T-shirt, just above the breasts) and the fingertip to fingertip measurement.

Yarn Requirements
Yarn Amounts are based on worsted weight yarn for 32 (40, 48)” bust estimates, but the shrug can be made to fit ANY bust size. You may use any weight yarn to make this garment, but the yardages will change (more yardage is required for a thin yarn, less for bulky yarn.)
Yarn A: 1040 (1300, 1560) yds
Yarn B: 400 (500, 600) yds
Yarn C: 280 (350, 420) yds

Notions
Darning needle, stitch marker, 24" circular needles (2) and dpn's (optional) in a size that works well with your yarn.
How To Knit
A quick, FREE class to introduce you to the basics of making knit and purl stitches using two sticks and string!

It's a self guided class (hey, it's free!) but there's a discussion forum where you can ask for help from other students or offer a bit of knowledge yourself!

Combination Knitting - Self Guided
All the videos, handouts and lectures of the above class, but YOU pick the dates, move at YOUR schedule and work on your own.

No chats, but you can always interact with other 'lone wolf' students (who may be at a different place than you are in their journey) or email Annie with any questions.  Excellent for the self-directed learner.
