New Year's Resolutions

The start of a new year is a wonderful time to set goals, clarify intentions and make a promise to yourself to expand your horizons in the months to come.  We spent some time this week making knitting related resolutions this week and thought we'd share them with you.Many of us at the shop want to make 2016 the year of brioche.  "Brioche knitting is a fun method that makes a thick, squishy knit fabric worked by slipping some stitches and working others across the row."brioche 02Julie wants to improve her brioche skills, not just to learn it but learn to love it.  Connie is also interested in strengthening her brioche proficiency, she'd like to learn how to increase, decrease, and fix mistakes on brioche knitting.  And Kimberly is thinking of forming a brioche support group so that she can boost her confidence and try a pattern.  As with any new knitting skill, the more you practice it the easier it becomes.Diana wants to learn the magic loop to make socks. And Eric wants to create and publish his own patterns in the upcoming year.What would you like to learn in the months to come?  Is there a technique that has daunted you, a skill that eludes you or a pattern that you'd love to complete?We'd love to support your crafting goals for 2016.  You can download our newest class schedule here.  If you don't find what you're looking for, give us a call and we'll do what we can to arrange the class that you'd like.Let's make 2016 a year to remember!
