Lindsay is a new member of the Interweave Staff that just joined us here in Fort Collins.  She has been teaching classes of all kinds for years, and will be kicking off our new schedule with a three session sock class that is going to be perfect for those of you eager to get some help with your first pair of socks.Vic England will be leading a Contiguous Shoulder workshop.  The Contiguous method is a way of knitting the shoulder seams and sleeve caps of a garment from the top down that can be utilized for cardigan or pullover sweaters. It naturally forms a nice shoulder slope without the diagonal seam created using the raglan method.  Her hands-on class will walk you through the basics by casting on for a mini sweater.Amelia and Lindsay will be offering a wide variety of skills clinics which will offer you some terrific new techniques a little bonus!  Signing up for more than one of our new skills clinics (shown in red on our class schedule available in the shop) can offer you some savings.
