New Things

Last Saturday I spent a few hours at my local yarn shop in a class learning new knitting techniques.

We (our class of five) learned provisional cast on methods and started knitting a button up shrug using Classic Elite Soft Linen.

I haven't gotten very far into the pattern, but what I have done I really like! My next new task?? Learning how to make button holes! (sorry about the picture quality!)

That is one of my favorite yarns, too!

I've never tried that yarn, but it looks and sounds yummy!
I came by here twice, briefly, and saw this post, read "button-up shrug" and thought "button-up cowl." When I clicked on the link, I was surprised! That's a neat pattern! You'll probably be surprised at how fast you finish it. It's such a lacy thing!
Thanks for sharing!
And I have yet to do a real button hole (more than just a yarn-over (for a tiny button.) Good for you.
