Baker's Cowl - A Gentle Introduction to Brioche at Starstruck Cat Yarn Studio

So what’s the big deal about Brioche?

Brioche is a fun and versatile knitting technique that creates the squishiest and most wonderful fabric. We’ll be taking a very gentle approach to Brioche with a 2-color cowl so that you can understand the mechanics of this strange colorwork. You’ll need 2 balls of Claddagh for this class (please purchase from Starstruck Cat Yarn Studio).

Class: Perfect Fit - A Lecture On Custom Fitting at Starstruck Cat Yarn Studio

April 27th is LYS Day, but it could also be the day that forever changes the way you look at sweaters.

Join me for a lecture (you’ll get a booklet to follow along) on all things sweater making. We’ll discuss fibers and how to substitute yarns in patterns, how to measure your body and adjust patterns to better fit your unique shape, common fitting mistakes and how to avoid them, and even talk about the dreaded gauge- what it means, how to get it (and why you might *not* want to get gauge) and making it work for you!

We’ll also discuss some easy structural changes to make to make your next sweater your very favorite. Whether you’re just starting out on your adventure into fitted knitting, or have several sweaters under your belt, this custom fit class could help you look at your next project with a different (more clinical) perspective and a lot more confidence.

We’ll have plenty of time for questions during the class and an opportunity to get your personal measurements after class and discuss how to make your sweater more flattering for your body type.

Knit Your Own Adventure- A Fair Isle Workshop

Paige will be offering a new sort of Fair Isle class at Serendipity Fibers!  This class doesn't teach a specific pattern, it's more of a workshop in Fair Isle technique and design.  The project we'll use for the class is a hat, but what it looks like is entirely up to you! 

Class is $25 and includes a skein of your main color.  Accent colors will be provided in the class.  You also get a $5 voucher to use at the Good For Ewe trunk show that weekend!  There is homework for the class (you'll need to cast on, knit your ribbing and 3 plain rows in your main color before coming) to keep the lesson moving quickly. We'll be working in Claddagh, a sport weight yarn.
