Country Woolens Winter Term Class Schedule

Today was a cold, snowy, winter day, a day when all one wants to do is sit by the fire and knit, and occasionally take a sip of some delicious thick homemade hot chocolate.  It was also the day that the Country Woolens' flyer came for classes during the winter.  Because I love knitting, and Debbie Hodges and her cohorts, and the Country Woolens yarn shop in Lebanon, NH, I think I will quickly list the classes coming up...several of which I would like to take myself.

These classes are divided up into several categories:  Small Projects, Technique Classes, Larger Projects,  Elizabeth Zimmermann Projects, and Workshops.  There are beginner (beg), intermediate (int), and advanced(adv) experience classes available.

Several of these classes have pre-class assignments, i.e. knitting a particular swatch or some other piece of knitting.  If you are interested in any of the classes you must pre-register at Country Woolens, 160 Mechanic Street, Lebanon, NH.  There is a $10 non-refundable deposit for each class.  For questions, call the shop at 603-448-1840.

Several times I have attended classes at Country Woolens and found each one of them excellent and just exactly what I needed.
