Afghan Square of the Month

2nd Wed of every month 1:00 - 2:00. $15/month or 6 for $60.
Make a sweater of your choice that fits the way you want it to. Some suggestions for the pattern: from the Knit Swirl book, or a simple top-down pullover or cardigan. We'll get you on the right track and keep you there and you will gain experience in pattern reading. The class will meet every Saturday.
Don't worry if you have to miss a class: you can pay for a class as you take it, $15 each; or 6 for $60.
