Spring Fling 2015
Heels & Toes...Get Your Foot In The Door!
April 17th, 18th, 19th
Our 2015 Spring Fling is about your feet! This year you can sign up for all OR one of the events. Janice Mercieri has returned from the Vogue Knitting Conference with a comprehensive 2-session sock course for us to host: "Heels n' Toes". Make the most of your socks with multiple methods of creating personalized heels and toes. Hone your skills and knowledge with a 2 1/2 hour morning session and a 3 hour afternoon session. Each session will have detailed handouts for future reference. As always, breakfast and snacks are included on both days!

Friday-Yarn Tasting
We kick off the Fling Friday night with a special Yarn Tasting! We won't tell you what we're doing, because it is a surprise, but we promise you'll love it! Friday night is free and anyone is invited! Those attending other Spring Fling events will receive their goodie bags then.

Morning Session 10:00-12:30

Breakfast is served at 9:00 a.m. We will eat and socialize until 9:45, when we get to work! The morning class will focus on measuring, arches, and such toes as Star, Propeller, Spiral, Toe-Up Turkish cast on, Provisional cast on, and Figure 8 cast on. Have fun with a list of some unique decreases and stretchy bind offs.

Lunch 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. - We we several wonderful resaurants in the area for you to enjoy!

Afternoon Session 2:00-5:00 

In this session we will concentrate on the topsy-turvy world of heels: top-down, going both ways, or toe-up. Heels being covered will be Common, Square, Half Handkerchief, Round, Easy Lithuanian, Fish Lips Kiss, Fork In The Road, Boomerang, Squircle, Sweet Tomato, and Fleegle.

Sunday 10:15-12:15

Breakfast at 9:30 (you can sleep in a bit), and class begins at 10:15. We are going to make beaded bracelets! All materials are included, and there are many color combos to choose from. You will get a handout with this session describing the process so you can make more bracelets! After class, feel free to sit and knit, visit, or head home to process your weekend of creative fun and learning!
