The More, The Merrier...

I'm tickled to announce that I'll be teaching a Beaded Shawl class at A Good Yarn Sarasota this month. It's actually a three-session class, beginning Wednesday, January 20th, with two other sessions on January 27th and February 3rd.

If you live in the area, or plan an extended visit to Sarasota, FL, I'd love to have you join the class. Each session is held on a Wednesday morning for an hour and a half, with a week between each class to allow students time to knit away on their shawl before the next session.
The kit, purchased separately from the class fee, is from Deanna's Vintage Styles, and you already know that I love knitting her Beaded Fringe Scarf pattern. (Heck, I did two as Christmas gifts and two others over the past year!)

I'll start knitting my own shawl this week, but the photos are the same design that I'll be teaching - modeled by Susan Post's lovely daughter. (Susan is the shop owner at A Good Yarn.) Class participants can choose the color they'd like to make for themselves. There are some really beautiful combinations!

You can get to A Good Yarn here to learn more about her new shop and further offerings in her class schedule. Hope some of you will be able to join me. The more, the merrier!
Note: Please don't be alarmed if your comment doesn't immediately show up. It only took one stranger to leave a link (multiple messages in some of my older posts) to a naughty website. (Shame on them!!!) Apologies that you now have to wait for blog owner approval for your comments to appear. (sigh) Thanks for your understanding.

Donna, I would love to take your class, I think you would be the best teacher ever!!! We are way too far apart.
I love my beaded scarf, I was just showing it to a girl who knits and she was amazed like I was. We agreed that it was the most beautiful knitted scarf we had seen!!! I just have to say if anyone is thinking of taking this class they should! I am sure it will be so much fun and your work is incredible!!!

Donna, I'm not the greatest knitter at all. As a matter of fact, I taught myself when I was very young using two rattail combs and a piece of yarn in the back of my parents car on a 10 hour drive :) I would love to take your class but unfortunately I'm in PA :( I really loved the scarves that you had made. Is there a pattern available for them?

Donna, I would be so honored to attend your class! I know I would learn so much from you. Sorry to read of your unwelcome comments. We went back in our past posts and discovered that people like to sneak those in on you. We went through and deleated them. Have a most wonderful day! Twyla

Congrats on teaching the class. I'm sure you are an awesome teacher! The shawl looks like a great project.
Thanks too Donna for your encouraging words on my blog yesterday. I was deeply touched by your willingness to search for information about ALS that could bring me some comfort. It meant more to me and my husband than you could know. Thanks for being there.
