The month of November blows in with cold winds, daylight savings time, and more time for knitting, spinning and crochet!  Here at Sip 'n Knit we're looking forward to a fun new class to take us through the month.  Our specials for November are a 10% discount on any yellow, orange or brown yarn and 20% off our Spiced Chai beverages.

Double Knitting
Team Hat (of your choice)
Monday evenings November 12, 19 and 26 from 6 – 8pm   

Double knitting is a technique that allows you to create a tube on straight needles; a double tube on circular needles; "quilt" your knitting or make a reversible fabric.  Double knitting can come in very handy when you would like to create a thick fabric:  a cold-weather hat, a pot holder, a coat.  It is also a great technique when doing color work with 2 colors:  double knitting will allow you to do vertical stripes and any other kind of two-tone fabric without requiring multiple bobbins of yarn, stranding or similar techniques required for 2-color work when working in standard knitting. 
In the opening session of the class we will explore several ways to do double knitting and the many uses for the technique.  The next two sessions will leave you free to work on one of the three patterns provided or one of your own choosing as you perfect your double knitting skills.  Instructor Pam Feldpausch will lead us down the path of Double Knitting fun!  Cost $15.00

Saturday, November 17 10 am - 2 pm
