Summer is the perfect time to learn about lace knitting and there's still time to register for Venessa's Lace Basics class. Explore the gentle rhythm and beauty of lace knitting and watch complex lace patterns come together in a fabric that provides just the right touch on a warm summer’s eve.  This lace program is perfect for new lace knitters or those who wish to expand their techniques.  Participants will explore a unique lace stitch pattern each week, working the patterns into a lace sampler or separate piece for their resource binder.  In the second half of the course, students will have the opportunity to transfer their skills by knitting the beautiful Swallowtail, a classic triangle shawl by lace designer Evelyn Clark. Basic knitting skills are required for this workshop and some homework will be needed to complete the lace samplers and triangle shawl. Dates and Times: Friday evenings, 6:30 to 9 pm, July 23, 30, August 6, 13, 20 and 27 Cost: $135 (includes lace knitting handbook) Instructor: Venessa Bentley For more information and materials requirements check our class posting here.  Call or stop by the shop to register.
