February/March Classes and Events
Thursday, February 9th, 5:30 to 7:30 (or so)… at HQ Santa Fe, 411B Water Street
Join us for beer, champagne, or coffee, and snacks. We’ll get our knit and crochet on and enjoy this local venue! (A Designated Knitter will be provided.)
Crave Yarn Trunk Show
Saturday, February 11th, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Crave Yarn’s creator, Amor Valdez, will be at Yarn & Coffee with her sumptuous yarns, including new colorways in a variety of bases, knitted and crocheted samples, and answers to your burning Crave Yarn questions. Stop by and chat with the artist, pet the yarns, and pick up some of your favorites.
Knit a Hat Saturdays, February 18th & 25th, 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. $45
What’s next, after scarves, you ask? Learn to knit a simple hat. This class is perfect for knitters who are ready to learn a few more essential knitting skills: knitting on circular needles, ribbing, increasing and decreasing, and using double-pointed needles. Students must know how to cast on, knit, and purl. This is a great refresher class for knitters who haven't knit for a while and want to start up again. Materials: 200 yards of worsted weight yarn, US7 16-inch circular needles and DPNs, stitch markers, tapestry needle.
Toe-Up Socks $60 Fridays, March 3rd, 10th, 17th & 24th, 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
If you missed the Jan/Feb Toe-Up Sock Class, here’s your chance to join the fun. We’re starting another round! Socks are the perfect portable project, and, since they are a relatively small project, there is the added benefit of quick completion. Each week the class will work on a different component of the socks, and by the end of the class each student will have one completed sock (provided you do the homework). Materials Needed: Two pair of 24” circular needles, size US2; 350 to 400 yards of sock yarn.
Yarn & Coffee offers individual instruction or consultation for $20 an hour. Learn to knit or crochet, or bring a project that requires a little focused help, or a design tweak.
