Love Intarsia
With Molly
Second class added:
Wed Feb 21 at 5:00 pm

Is the 2018 Challenge Book ruling your life?  If so, this class will fulfill our Intarsia challenge!

You can do a two color pillow -- use any weight you want.  Be sure to use a needle that is 2 to 3 sizes smaller than the ball band requires.

Intarsia is the knitting technique that most easily allows you to insert an image in your work while maintaining a smooth, single layer fabric.  There are just a few tricks to it.

Class fees may be refunded for store credit if the class is cancelled at least 24 hours ahead.  Class fees vary by teacher.  Classes are limited to between 6 and 9 people so register early to guarantee your spot.
Posting Projects on Ravelry

Posting your projects to Ravelry does more than just track your progress.  It helps other knitters to see how yarn looks once knitted and how different a pattern can look in different yarn.  It helps the designer get more exposure for their patterns.  And it helps your friends remember the name of the patterns they too want to make!  Be sure to share your projects with the HOKC group!  
Want free yarn?  This year, for every project you add to Ravelry (with pictures) and share with HOKC's Ravelry Group, we will add your name to a monthly drawing!  You do not need to be present to win -- we will announce winners on our Ravelry Group each month.

Click here for more information on how to post a project.
Stop in today for your 2018 Challenge Booklet!

Were you pinched for time trying to finish gifts this year?  Join the 2018 Challenge!  You will make 12 gifts while exploring new techniques and the chance to win monthly prizes.
