For one-on-one personalized help, please consider scheduling a private lesson with instructor Sandi Cooley...she can handle just about anything from interpretting directions to assistance seaming together your completed project. $25/hour. Call the shop to make an appointment. (262) 377-0344.

This gorgeous 40-row shrug with its sumptuous cable design is the perfect garment for those cool days and nights when you need a bit of elegant warmth as you head out the door.  Designer Melissa Schashwary is a Wisconsin knitter, designer and blogger whose other designs have been shown in the shop.

Our knit-along will include two structured sessions: one to get started and review the cable design used on the back center panel.  The April session will focus on sewing up the sleeves and picking up stitches for the cable cuff.

"Bind off loosely." It seems like such a challenge at times.  Wikipedia refers to 6 different bind-offs - hah! Entire books have been written on the topic! Come explore the whys and wherefores of different bind-off methods.  You might want to have a few swatches ready to practice with.

FACILITY
The Grafton Yarn Store acommodates a standard class of six to eight students for our project classes. But when things get "knitty," as they often do on a busy evening of open knitting, students spill into our sitting area which features a couch and several comfy chairs. Whether you are in the shop for a class or stopping by for some one-on-one instruction, we have all the comforts of home.
            
INSTRUCTORS

   
ANN SCHANTZ - Grafton Yarn Store owner Ann learned to knit from her brother at age 5. In addition to running the store, she teaches most of the Wednesday night project classes. She loves to design her own patterns for the shop, one of which was recently published in the book "One Skein Wonders."

SANDI COOLEY - "I was given knitting lessons from my husband when I was pregnant with my first child 47 years ago, and I've been knitting ever since. I've worked in two yarn stores, allowing me to accumulate a lot of knowledge...and a lot of stash! As I continue to learn new things, I love to be able to share them with others.
