The Great American Aran Afghan

2nd ROUND of Classes

Hi All,
Come join our new Block of the Month Club. What's that? Well, we are going to knit a Great American Aran Afghan (heirloom) with squares and in each square you will be learning a new type of cable stitch. Not only is this a very beautiful afghan, but it is something you will surely want to pass down to your family for generation after generation. Go here to check out what all the different squares are.
It's getting too hot to knit an afghan! Not this one, as you will only be knitting a small square at a time. Very similar to making a quilt and every bit as nice.

The class will be limited to 6 people. You will learn not only to read patterns, but to do many different types of cable stitches every 2 weeks. The 10 session class is $100.00, (that's $10.00/class!!!) cash or check only. Your other option is to pay over time at $20.00 per session, plus the yarn which costs $9.80 per ball of Cascade 220 Superwash. Yes, you can wash it!!! One ball will do a square. If you buy all your yarn at one time you will get a 10% discount on the yarn.

Come in, get signed up and pick your yarn. Yes, you will get to pick colors before we order! Don't forget you can pay per session, if you prefer. In order to get this yarn ordered and meet the class start dates we need you in here early as possible to pick colors, so we can get the yarn ordered and shipped. Because many of you have different schedules we will choose a start date collectively.

Hope to see ya soon!
