Blending and Spinning Your Stash with Hand Cards
Michael Kelson 15 students
Saturday, June 25, 9am-noon
COST: $55 plus Materials Fee: $15 – includes fiber used in class
CLASS DESCRIPTION: As spinners we often end up with bits of lots of fibers and samples as part of our spinning stash. Carding is a fun way to use your spinning stash and get the perfect yarn for YOU! This class will explore the use of hand cards to prepare and blend fibers for spinning different types of yarns. We will blend various different types of down fibers (e.g. camel, yak), silks, and we will discuss how to select and blend fibers from your stash to make fantastic knitting or weaving yarns. This class will also review "woolen" spinning techniques (e.g. long draw), discuss how to evaluate the amount of singles twist and ply twist for the fibers in your custom carded blend, and will discuss yarn finishing techniques.
SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: should have a good working relationship with your wheel. Be able to spin a stable consistent single.
STUDENTS BRING: Spinning wheel in good working condition with extra bobbins, lazy-kate. Bring any tools you might like to use (hand cards, mini-combs, etc) and any fiber you would like to practice with, and note taking materials.

Versatility with Cast-Ons
Harry Wells 20 students
Saturday, June 25, 9am-noon
COST: $55 Plus Materials Fee: $3 – printed materials
CLASS DESCRIPTION: We knitters all have our "go to" cast-on, the one which is automatic in our head and hands, and flows quickly. However as our experience grows, we begin to recognize that different projects require different types of cast-ons. Some projects need stretchy cast-ons; others need a cast-on that allows knitting in two different directions, and some projects gain sophistication and pizzazz by having a decorative edge cast-on. This class covers multiple cast-ons, including German Twisted, Crochet Hook Provi-sional, Channel Island, Tubular, Braided Two Color, Frilled, Picot, Rolled Edge, Judy's Magic Cast-on, and a rather complex two needle cast-on excellent for when an elastic edge (like for lace or K1B) is needed. Come discover a new versatility in beginning projects!
SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: should be able to accomplish long tail cast on, knit, purl, K2tog, and SSK without assistance.
STUDENTS BRING: Worsted-weight wool or wool blend yarn in two colors, size 7 straight needles preferred (or whatever size you normally use for worsted-weight yarn) but 24" circular is okay.
