BREATHING SPACE KAL
Come join us our Knit-A-Long for the sweater, Breathing Space  "The art
of breathing, something we rarely really pay attention to, is so much like
letting go. It’s something truly free. Let these lines guide you into that
lovely and relaxed breathing space, keeping you grounded while your piece keeps
growing, row after row and stripe after stripe. Find the quiet piece of movement
with this little garment. The sweater is worked from top down with raglan yoke
and the asymmetric shaping makes it a very stylish and at the same time very
easy to wear."
Materials: please go to the Ravelry link .  
Starting Sunday afternoon at 1 pm on April 23.  Cost:  $30 -- includes pattern and
10% off for any yarn purchased for the sweater.

FIND YOUR FADE SHAWL/SWEATER KAL
Find your own fade -- from the designer " Starting at a
single point and growing, shifting and fading into a piece that
begs to be wrapped up in. This asymmetrical triangle shawl
uses some clever increasing and decreasing, combined with
relaxing garter stitch and simple lace so that you have a
fun-to-knit canvas to play with mixing colors on! This shawl
is all about making it your own. Let your creativity shine!! "
We'll have lots of fun picking color combos.

MY FIRST CUSTOMFIT SWEATER WORKSHOP
CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices, your body, and your hand-
knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you. Design and fit expertise are built-in, so you get
to make all the fun choices ("I want a long-sleeved scoop-neck!"), without worrying about the hard ones
("How much ease do I need in my waist?"). CustomFit builds a pattern that fits beautifully from hem to
neck, and everywhere in between.   It works like this: we take your measurements (just once), you knit a
swatch and choose your sweater elements (style, neckline, sleeve style, edgings, etc.). We put that
information into our special LYS CustomFit account and create a pattern that is perfect for you. Your
measurements are saved forever, so your second sweater is even easier!  Includes a  Knit to Flatter
overview, measurements,
and good fabric. Bring back swatches on the second day and then we will design your sweater and create
your pattern. Click

Dates:  Saturday, June 3 & 17; 1-2:30 pm Cost:$30
Thursday, June 15 & 22 ; 7-8:30 pm Cost: $30
