Entrelac Basics with Gwen Bortner
Have you always wanted to learn entrelac but thought it would be too hard? Whether a beginner or advanced knitter, this class is for you. During this class, each student will have the opportunity to knit a small project to gain hands-on experience in the entrelac technique.

Knitting in Both Directions with Gwen Bortner
Most of us knit in one direction, but what would happen if you could knit in EITHER direction? Bobbles would pop out faster, entrelac would be even more fun, edgings would be added quicker and your yarn would be less tangled. Some call it knitting back backwards, but regardless of the name, it is a great skill to have in your knitting arsenal.

Sprang! Taught by Carol James
Sprang is a ‘reciprocal braiding technique’. A set of threads are fixed at both ends; each participant needs a frame. Work at one end of the threads results in a mirror-image piece at the other end. This means that you get two rows of cloth for every row worked!
