LYS Day Demonstration: Knitting Machine Highlights

It's not cheating! Are you curious about how a knitting machine works, and how it can accelerate your knitting processes? Do you have lots of yarn stash you'd like to knit, but can't hand-knit fast enough? We'll provide a knitting machine demonstration, and will take sign-ups for sessions in May with Leslie to make your own stockinette poncho, worked on the knitting machine.

LYS Day Demonstration: Shawl Styling

Have you knit or crocheted beautiful scarves, wraps, shawls, and shawlettes, and you're stuck in a rut or unsure how to best style them? Join Yvonne and learn several options for styling your beautiful hand-made shawls, including use with pins. Yvonne will demonstrate with some of her samples, and you may also bring one or two of your own if you'd like styling suggestions.

LYS Day Demonstration: Yarn Substitution Highlights

What if you substitute a cotton yarn for a wool yarn recommended in your pattern? What if you want to use a DK weight rather than a worsted weight? Marissa will share some key considerations when you want to substitute yarn in a pattern.
