Upcoming Classes at Chicks With Sticks

Looking for a spring/summer project? Here are the latest classes on our schedule:

Varya is a casual summer top with a diamond lace motif and split hem.  You'll learn knit the front and back hems separately and then join to knit the rest of the top in the round to the underarms before it is split again to finish flat.  You'll also learn to read a chart. Find out more at this link.

Back by popular demand: the Intersections Sock! Join us for this 1-at-a-time, toe-up sock class. One of the features of this sock is the easiest heel you'll ever do. More info is here.

Does a project have you down?  Thursday night drop-in help sessions may be just what you need for those times you need a couple hours of assistance (or just moral support) on a project.  Sessions run from 6-8pm Thursday nights and cost $5.  Be sure to check our online calendar or give us a call as there may occasionally be a night when there is no class.

Thank you for making us your Local Yarn Shop!
