2016 Square of the Month

The Square of the Month Afghan series begins its 9th year on January 10th! Don’t miss this opportunity to join in the fun.

What:  The Square of the Month class is a great way to learn many techniques, tricks, and skills. This class meets just once per month. In each 2-hour class you will learn one new knitting technique in the form of an afghan square lovingly designed by Kristin Kelly. She will instruct you on the technique, help you get started, provide you with a pattern, and send you on your way to knit two 10” x10” afghan squares. At the end of the year you will have enough squares to make a 40” x60” afghan. You will also be invited to a fun and celebratory Assembly Party at the end of the year, during which Kristin will have a mini-workshop on assembly techniques!

When: The class meets on the second Sunday of every month. 12:30 – 2:30pm, beginning January 10, 2016.
