Watercolor Bag Party/Class on Sunday

Thursday, April 7th, 2005

Watercolor Bag copyright LynnHI have to just put in a word for the fun we are going to be having at the Yarn Garden in Charlotte, MI this upcoming Sunday.

Watercolor Bag copyright LynnHKim and Pat really pull out the stops to make a fun party experience on these weekend classes I have been doing for them since fall. You can bring food if you choose, or just indulge in all the goodies other people bring. You will be full either way. And she has done door prizes for every one of my Sunday class/parties so far, so I would guess there will be more of that as well.

We will be doing the Watercolor Bag this time. You get a pattern included in the class. It takes only 3 skeins of Noro Kureyon and about half a skein of a coordinating solid yarn (I use Cascade 220, you might choose something else that felts). It’s a nice size bag, lightweight for a knitted bag, and it stays closed as you wear the thing around town, which I really like.

It is a very simple project to knit, doesn’t take much time to make up, and looks great. It would be fun for an experienced person looking for a little pick-me-up fun knitting project, and also for a friend who is just learning the basics. There is no purling in this bag, and only a few decreases on the bottom, otherwise it’s straight knitting that doesn’t get boring because of the color changes in the yarn.

I would love to see some of you at the class! You can contact Kim at kim AT yarngardencharlotte DOT com or 517/541-9323. Please join the fun, it’s a wonderful crowd there at the shop. And the pies at the diner across the street… mmmm… Brian always looks forward to that artform when I return from classes in Charlotte. The best!
