Errata-- Corrections to the Last Post

My apologies-- I put up a post yesterday that had some errors in it. I have taken that post down now, but just in case let me point out to you my biggest error: I said that this coming Sunday is Second Sunday. WRONG. That was last Sunday. So there is not a Second Sunday event coming up until next month. Also, some of the classes I listed didn't make or have passed. So, below you'll find accurate listings for a couple of upcoming crochet classes. And if you go to the store website, you can find a list of all upcoming classes.

Speaking of the Hill Country Weaver website (which is different from this blog)-- the site undergone some lovely changes. Please click the link above to check it out.

Crochet Edging for Knitters
July 17, 2-4pm
Fee: $35
Absolute Beginner (NO experience)
Instructor: Emily Kausalik
Spice up your knitting with adorable, fashionable, and classic crochet edgings.
In this class knitters will learn how to crochet an edging around a small knit sample,
and introduce simple crochet stitches, chain stitches, and basic crochet techniques.
This is a great gateway class into crocheting! Students need no previous experience, though
knowledge of how to hold a crochet hook and yarn, and how to chain and/or make
a single crochet stitch will be beneficial.
BRING: A small, 4"x4" knit swatch in stockinette using worsted weight yarn (any material)
size H or I crochet hook, worsted weight yarn (in contrasting color of swatch)
and locking stitch markers
