With a warm weekend comes summer plans! If your summer plans involve trying something new, perfect – our summer class calendar is at hand~
Let’s look at some of the newcomers this season…
Saturday July 9th, 16th & 23rd
Whether you’re a beginner looking to experiment, or a more advanced knitter looking for a show-stopping summer accessory, the Lionberry is the project for you! It requires 100g of a fingering weight yarn, perfect for that special skein of Mechita or Fino or even our super soft Eco Llama. The pattern is free, and three Saturdays in a row will see it done in plenty of time to wear out in the sun~
Learn Tunisian Crochet
Thursday June 2nd 6 – 8PM
or Tuesday August 9th 1 – 3PM
Due to popular demand, we are introducing a Learn Tunisian Crochet class. One session, it covers how to make a basic washcloth – the perfect blank canvas for experimenting with a fun & fast new hobby! Keep in mind that for Tunisian crochet you generally want to go up a needle size from what the yarn recommends – we have double-ended crochet hooks as well as interchangeable crochet hook tips & cords.
Saturday June 4th & 11th, 10:30 – 12:30PM
Colourful brioche projects seem to be all the rage lately! Our Brioche class this summer is a two-parter that will cover not just basic brioche, but also incorporating other colours~ It is up to you if you go with a circular project like Katrin Schubert’s OhBoy or a flat project like Purl Soho’s Color Dipped Scarf.
Friday August 5th, 12th, & 26th 10:30 – 12:30
Bringing back a shop favourite, our Knit Colourwork Mitts class will use a new pattern this summer – Tori Seierstad’s Selbu Sea Horse Mittens! Work a summery theme into this winter necessities so you can maintain warm thoughts into the colder days~
The pair takes approximately fifty grams each of two colours of fingering weight yarn – perfect for shop newbie Lang Yarns’ Magic Tweed Superwash.

For the summer we have also of course brought back the classics, like Learn to Crochet, Learn to Knit, Knit a Cabled Hat, Crochet a Cowl, and our Thursday Yarn Socials. Due to some confusion this past season, we have decided to shift our $5 Sock Drop-In so that it is EVERY Friday afternoon, from 1 – 3. You can see the specifics of our class calendar on our website here or download a PDF copy of our class dates/descriptions here.
I would normally say stay cozy, but at these temperatures it might be better to go with ‘stay cool’!
