Twined Knitting (Tvåändsstickning)
Learn the techniques of traditional Swedish twined knitting, knitting with two strands, with Kristin Knudson. The additional strand allows you to create the intricate patterns characteristic of this method. You will practice how to cast on, create decorative patterns, cast off, knit in the round and how to keep the balls of yarn as tangle-free as possible.
A wristlet will be the first project. After that, you can choose to make the mate or continue on to a pair of fingerless mittens. As a result, this class is suitable for beginning or experienced knitters wanting to try this technique. $50

Join Kate Sterner, who will teach you how to make a singlade ball, a colorful toy for a toddle or spoiled cat. Kate explains,"When our grandparents were children, they didn't have all the toys and gizmos we have today. They played with simple toys, often hand made by a loving parent. Take a normal hand-sized ball, for example. Gather simple and cheap household materials, such as cork, rags and some yarn from your stash, and you can make a beautiful piece of art, as well as a hardy play thing for a child. Only a few generations ago in Denmark and the southern regions of Sweden, there developed a little known craft called a "singlade" ball (literally "flipped" or "tossed") or more descriptively, an embroidered ball. The technique is simple, creative and satisfying. Want to learn how to 'singla' a ball? Join our class!" Materials needed: Darning needle and colorful, worsted weight wool yarn. $25. Saturdays, May 24, 31, and June 7 10 a.m. to noon.
