Learn a lifelong skill with our pro Pam. "The lightbulb really goes off between the second and third class". In this series of 3 classes you will learn the anatomy of a stitch and how to recognize Knits and Purls, while following a pattern with knitting terminology. You will also be exposed to reading a chart, another component of pattern reading. Finish the class with tips and tricks, practice fixing mistakes, and leave with ideas and patterns to confidently move on to your next project!
Some of your favorite designers and creators will join us for a series of online gatherings with a partnership with fellow LYS, Longmont Yarn Shoppe: Fiberside Chats!
Launched in May of 2020, these gatherings, hosted on Zoom, are one-hour sessions with special guests joining us to give a peek into their world. These designers and creators will discuss their unique path, creative processes, latest projects—or whatever is inspiring them now. There will also be a Q&A session, giveaways, and other fun surprises for those who join!

A fun, and super unique construction makes this hat. It's written for sock yarn, but is easliy adaptable to any weight. We are going to knit a mini hat to make sure you get all the techniques in. This is a relatively easy hat, but you must be open to adventure from the beginning to the end.
