Look at the classroom at the new Black Sheep (see posts Monday and Tuesday for shop photos)! The room is bright and it has a nice large table with good chairs. The other classroom was small; a walkthrough to the office and back door, plus it only had room for a small table and folding chairs. The new space is wonderful! Lisa, our estimable teacher, is helping a student. She is a teacher extraordinaire and teaches many classes at the shop including two color knitting (of many types), finishing, beginning knitting, Norwegian, Fair Isle, Icelandic sweaters and in January a Gansey class. (Now Norma, I know you don’t care for Ganseys. But, I’m intrigued and want to design my own. It’s a challenge and I’ll get a warm sweater out of it…eventually.)
Every teacher in the shop is very good and it’s so nice to have a place that knows more than most of us. I’m a class junkie. I love to learn and think that something is gained in any class. Classes are a social thing for me, like Stitch ‘n Bitch, but a little more formal. Just being in the shop is fun and inspiring. Don’t you think a trip back to the shop this weekend will be a good idea!?
Weekend fun awaits
