Summer News

Casapinka Hug Shot

Fiberworks is excited to be offering kits for the next Casapinka shawl, Hug Shot!  The kit consists of two skeins of Baah Yarn La Jolla and a download code for the pattern.  The pattern won’t be released until June 4th, so you have plenty of time to get your kit.  Either stop by the store or email fiberworksdayton@att.net and let us know which of the 5 colors you would like, or pick your own pair.

We will also be starting our Sock Knitting and Beginning Knitting classes again on June 6th, although with a few changes.  Class size will be limited to 4 students and students must register ahead of the class time.  Please call (937) 429-9276 to register.  Masks are REQUIRED for all students.  Our Sock Knitting class covers the basics of sock knitting, and meets Saturdays from 10 to 12.  Students need to be able to knit in the round for this class.  The Beginning Knitting class helps students develop their skills as a knitter, from first learning the knit stitch to completing a hat.  The Beginning Knitting class meets Saturdays from 2 to 4.  For both classes, students work at their own pace, and the class fee is $10 per session.

In our store, please remember that we are observing safe hygiene practices (masks are STRONGLY requested) and social distancing with a maximum of 12 people in the shop at a time.

Socks Classes

Fiberworks is excited to be offering more sock knitting classes.  Please be sure to preregister and receive the materials list by calling the store at (937) 429 – YARN (9276) or stopping in.

We will be offering both Top-Down and Toe-Up Sock Classes on Saturday mornings from 10 am to noon.  Each session is $10.  Beginners will start with the top-down socks, while more experienced sock knitters will improve their skills with the toe-up socks.  Each method will use either double pointed needles, two circular needles, or Magic Loop, and knitters will learn the basics of knitting in the round, turning a heel, short rows and picking up stitches.

Whether you’ve never knit a stitch in your life or you’re returning after a hiatus this small class will help you become familiar with the craft. Each class is $10, come as often as you are able. Please call 429-YARN or stop by the store to make your reservation.
