Clapotis Knit-A-Long

Classes are in full swing here at Beach Basket. My favorite right now is the Clapotis Knit-A-Long. Last week was great: we got cast on, worked a few inches, got comfortable with the pattern, and talked about dog training tricks. I worked a bit more over the last week and am excited to be heading back today to get more done!

If you are interested you can still sign up today and get in on the next three weeks! We start today at 2:30.

Interested in a different class? Our Basic Sock Knitting class starts next Saturday at 10:30 am! This is round 2 of the basic sock class since it was so popular last time. My students have been in to show me they are wearing the socks they made, they all love the final product!
