Lots of classes going on at Woolbearers. Thursday night we were excited to host Sharon Silverman, author of Tunisian Crochet, for a class on Tunisian Crochet. Here she is showing the class some of the projects from the book. It was a great class and everyone can't wait for the next one. Thank you for coming Sharon!

Our spinning classes have begun again with Barb Johns -- our spinning guru.

Ruby and Mary Lou are working on finishing their Wrap me up Shawls. Almost done!

Our Orenburg Lace Knitting class.

There are lots more classes coming up -- our "Bead up your Knitting" Class is Oct 10th --- there's some homework, so sign up now.. Here's a preview of some other classes.

Two more botanicas done -- I finished mine and Debra is wearing hers. It's just perfect.

Meghan is working on her Pi Shawl knit out of Mini Mochi. Love the colorway.

Brynn knit these socks out of Opal Hunderwasser. I just love the way they turned out.

Bonnies knit this scarf for the store. It's made out of Isager Alpaca 2 -- free pattern with yarn purchase.

Kris is showing off her Tunisian Crocheted scarf with beads made out of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic yarn. Gorgeous!

Ann took my beginner class last November and hasn't stopped knitting. Here is her Ulmus made out of Jojoland Superwash Melody.

Kathleen buys lots of yarn -- now she says that her son is competing with her to see whose stash is biggest. Here he is with his first hat project.

The Wrap Me Up Shawl is a project that is never ending. I've seen so many of them made -- each one looks unique. Here is Susan's. She has used Woolbearer's hand dyed yarns in this project. I was so tickled to see yarn that I dyed when we first opened the store! I had to get a shot of each of all the squares.

Louise is making another one -- this time she's using cottons.

Donna finished hers out of Plymouth Boku. Very striking colors.

Hi ... I'm your occasional customer ... I live in California ... and I am very curious about the wrap me up shawl ... is it freeform or is there a pattern/guide ? They are gorgeous !

Hi Paula --- the pattern is from Knitting at Knoon and is called the "Wrap me Up Shawl". I sell the pattern. It calls for a self-striping yarn, but as you can see anything will do. I've made two of them - they are a lot fun to knit.
