What we're going CrAzY for....

Zauberball Crazy has evolved! This yarn has two strands that have been dyed individually and then twisted together for a crazy combination. The end result is a self-striping, multi-colored pattern with a bold variegated design. It is clear that the artists behind the yarn, Schoppel Wolle, are dedicated to pushing the envelope of color, texture, and style!

 

Indulge Yourself!

After weeks of frantically knitting gifts, it's time to rekindle your love for your craft. Take some time to slow down, relax, find warm fibers, and sign up for a class with a project or technique you want to learn. Go ahead -- you deserve it! Have a look at our upcoming February & March classes, featured below. Register for the one that is right for you -- go to www.woolwinders.com or call the shop today!

Exploring Sequence Knitting - with KIM!

Our Summer to Remember continues - and we're SO EXCITED to have our very own Kim Schneibolk teaching special workshop classes this summer in Rockville and Annapolis shops! 

Exploring Sequence Knitting with Kim Schneibolk

No stranger to fans of WoolWinders, Kim continues to be a highly sought after Safari instructor. Over the last 15 years, she has taken numerous classes at the national level to enhance her knitting skills. She is also working her way through the TKGA Master Knitting Program, passing the first two levels & working on the final level to become a Master Knitter. To read more about our remarkable Kim, please see her bio on our WoolWinders staff page.

As for sequence knitting - when she first saw the Sequence Knitting book, Kim was taken by the knits in the book because they look so complex, but are easy and relaxing to knit. She is excited to help you explore the concepts of sequence knitting!

Knit complex looking fabrics with very little mental effort! Sequence knitting is perfect for social and travel knitting. You don't need to track rows as most are 1-row repeats. You'll find that knitting a repetitive sequence of stitches is rhythmic, soothing & meditative. 

In this class you will learn the basics of Sequence Knitting and knit some sample swatches to "see the magic" happen on your needles. 

The book Sequence Knitting by Cecelia Campochiaro is a beautiful & very informative book. Included in the price of this class, the book does an excellent job of explaining all the nuances of knitting sequences.  It is also an excellent stitch dictionary and has many wonderful patterns to explain and illustrate the concepts and sequence patterns. Join Kim in this exploration of sequence knitting!  

Please note - This class requires participants to have the book, Sequence Knitting. If you already have the book you may register for the session without the cost of the book. Otherwise you can register for the class with the book cost included and you will receive a copy with the class.

 

*We're sorry but no discounts can be applied to special classes.
