Spring is on its way, but it can still be cold!  The Audrey Sweater by Wool and the Gang is a fast and easy introduction to making your first sweater.  Composed of 4 flat rectangles worked separately in Stockinette stitch with bulky yarn, this project is the definition of chill TV knitting.  The pattern is graded in bust sizes 32-52 inches, and includes generous amounts of ease.  You may wish to check the pattern schematics for the finished dimensions of each size to help you select the size to make.  The class will meet four times, with plenty of time in between classes, and will finish with clear instruction on how to assemble your new sweater.  

To make the first session productive, students are encouraged to work a sizable gauge swatch before class as follows: cast on 24 stitches and work at least 4 inches, and then leave stitches on your needle.  We will measure and adjust at the first class!

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
