I have new classes coming up in May at Yarn Shop Santa Cruz. Call the shop at 831-515-7966 to register!
Sock Club Sundays
Every first Sunday of the month 10am-11:30am, this month May 7th.
Join the fun, while filling your drawer full of hand-knit socks as many other knitters have done via the popular #operationsockdrawer on social media. This month we’ll work on the pattern Tip Toe Up.
During the monthly meeting we will go over the selected pattern and review any new techniques or tricky steps. Members will vote on what sock pattern we will tackle next. You will have a chance to cast on and get started but not before we “show and tell” our FS=finished socks!
Cost: $15 per session
Skills needed: Basic knitting skills (knit, purl, cast-on, bind-off)
and should be comfortable knitting in the round
Knitting 101- Mug Rug

This is for the total beginner or if you need a refresher. Make a handy mug rug to go under your favorite hot drink. You will learn how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.
We’ll also discuss how to read a simple knitting pattern and practice identifying and fixing your mistakes as you go.
Prerequisite Skills: None
Materials Needed: US size 7 knitting needles, light or medium colored smooth worsted weight yarn (suggested: Plymouth Worsted Super Wash), row counter, small scissors, tape measure, and a darning needle
