We are starting to receive the Prism Trunk Show garments and yarns. Laura Bryant, owner of Prism Yarns, has pulled together a fabulous selection of gorgeous new garments and supporting fibers, and I truly cannot wait to share them with you! Heck, I can't wait to get my hands on them myself!

You remember last year's trunk show, I'm sure, so when you think of Prism, it's probably Wild Stuff and Plume that come to mind.

Rigoles Wrap Class

Rigoles 2

Rigoles, a beautiful wrap who's name is French for tricks. And a trick it is! The complicated-looking pattern is simply a clever arrangement of solid and self-striping yarn worked in a variety of short row patterns. Like so many techniques in knitting, it only looks intimidating - once you know how, it's actually quite rhythmic and compelling. It's your own work of art, and every Rigoles is different from the next - even if you use exactly the same yarns!

In this two-session class, Ginni will show you how to work the various insets and will get you started on your own work of art and trickery.

Afternoon session: Tuesdays, Jan 3rd and 10th 2:30-4:30
Evening session: Wednesdays, Jan 4th and 11th 5:30-7:30
