New! Knit a Critter Cap
Gul Rukh Selim
If you can knit and purl, you can create a cute and colorful ladybug, bunny, or bumble bee hat. In fact, why not add the possibility of knitting a strawberry or pumpkin hat, too?
All instructions will be provided and each participant will work at their own level and pace. Start your hat on the first Saturday, knit some of it during the week (the main body which will just be a repeating sequenced) and come back to finish it the second Saturday.
Supplies to be brought by students:
One 16 inch U.S. #6 (4mm) circular knitting needle, one set of #6 (4mm) needles (comes in sets of four or five) and Lion Brand medium weight yarn–red and black for ladybug, red and green for strawberry, yellow and black for bumble bee, white for rabbit or orange for pumpkin. The instructor has pink and green remnants to share for rabbit ears or pumpkin stem.

A Book in a Box
This is a great introduction to the skills and the creative potential in book arts. In the morning we will make a small, hardcover book with an accordion spine. The book opens flat and is perfect for attaching and displaying already made paintings, drawings, collages or photographs. Then we will construct a half clam shell box to fit the book. Although the book and box will be made from pre-cut pieces (due to limited time), participants can choose from a wide array of decorative materials. The result will be a beautiful, one-of-a-kind set. All materials and tools provided.
