One of my favorite things to do when I am knitting gifts is to personalize the items. I love putting in the recipient's initials or a secret message in a sweater hem or a hat brim:) Another wonderful way to personalize your knitting is with SHADOW KNITTING!  Scarves with a "secret" message (the message is only seen when the item is angled a certain way) like a child's name or a school or team name, or a special image like an alien or a heart can be knitted right into the design! Learn this fun and simple technique with Jessica Armstrong TWO TIMES this OCTOBER. During the ALIEN SHADOW KNITTING SCARF CLASS on SATURDAYS, OCTOBER 5 & 19 from 10-12 p.m. AND ALSO, during the SAFARI LITE GROUP KNITTING CLASS on MONDAYS NIGHTS, OCTOBER 7, 14 & 28 from 6-8 p.m.!
