This can be your first sweater or your first colour work sweater pattern. We are going to tackle both this winter!
We will all use the same pattern from TinCan Knits. Come in to the shop or call us to sign up and get all the details and supplies you will need.
Mosaic Wet Felted Scarf Workshop
Saturday March 14th from 10 am to 4 pm
Lesley Snyder, owner of Rosehaven Yarn Shop, will be teaching the mosaic felting course. Lesley is a fibre artist that has been felting for a decade and selling her shawls and garments in her shop and also at Arts On Main gallery where she was a member for a number of years.
Lesley will show you how to create texture, play with colour and work with negative space to create something unique and different in a shawl. We will work on applying different fabrics along with the wool to create layers, texture and add movement to your piece. We will be using resists as well to add more texture. Plus a few tricks to adding 3 dimensional pieces.
There will be an hour lunch break when you can visit a local cafe or bring a lunch if you prefer.
Call the shop Monday to Saturday, 10-5 to register and pay for your spot. 613-476-9092.

Beginner’s Knitting Class
Friday Evenings from 5 pm to 7 pm
These Friday evenings are set up so you can come when it works for you. Pick a couple of Fridays, let us know, and voila your knitting class has begun!
We are here to help! You could want to refresh your knitting skills if it’s been a few years or to expand your knitting repertoire and try a pattern that is a bit more of a challenge. I can help you with whatever kind of thing you would like to take on during these 2 hours. Or if it’s your first time knitting we can start with a simple dish cloth to get you going.
These first 2 hours will get your hands going in the right direction of a knitting project.
Price is $15 an hour for assistance or priced according to the project you want to take on. Call the shop to book your spot. 613-476-9092
Men’s Knitting Class
IS BACK!! Every Sunday from 1 pm to 3 pm.
Afraid you’re not man enough to learn to knit? If you can hold two sticks and count to 10 then I can teach you to make stuff that will cause people to look at you and say, “Wow, look at you!”
Early on we’ll keep it simple by tackling casting on, simple knit and purl stitches, & binding off as you make a couple of easy peasy washcloths just like your Grandpa used to use because your Grandma knit them for his lazy ass!
We’ll progress through knitting projects like hats, scarves, fingerless gloves (because ain’t nobody dumb enough to knit fingers) and eventually work up to full on sweaters! Trust me if I can do it then you can too!
