Hello Portland Knitters!

Happy Holidays to you all! We have been assembling quite a class schedule for you that gets rolling mid-January. You'll have a moment to breathe after the holidays, but don't delay signing up for classes as these will surely be filling up!

We could not be more excited about the upcoming classes and knitting stardom in our midst!

Louisa Harding will be spending an evening at Close Knit on Sunday January 21st. Louisa is a prolific European designer with too many titles to mention here. From 4-5 pm, you can come meet her, have books signed, and hear about her exciting designs that coordinate with her incredible line of yarns. Following this, she'll be teaching a class from 5-8pm (description in classes). Don't miss this rare opportunity to visit with and learn from Louisa! All Louisa Harding yarns and books will be on sale all day January 21st!

Leigh Radford of One Skein and Alterknits fame ( so graciously returns to Close Knit. Leigh is an amazing and inspiring instructor. We feel fortunate that she is a local and is offering three classes this winter. Her fabulous felted circle tote will be offered twice. Leigh will also teach a three-hour Shibori class - read the classes for a full description!

Sarah Lucas, author of Holiday Knits: 25 Great Gifts from Stockings to Sweaters and owner of Yarn of the Month will be teaching again in the new year, just as she has some exciting new knitting titles that will be released! Read the classes to find out more about her three classes!

Local crochet master Alicia Paulson is also returning to Close Knit. Alicia has quite an online following, and everyone at Close Knit is a big fan as well! Check out her talent at Her adorable baby crochet samples are in the shop and oh my ... we wish they were grown-up sizes! Alicia has two class offerings to consider.

We welcome other new and returning local talent to the mix, including Adrienne, Cynthia, Ann, Lorell, Judy, Elaine, Bob, Robert, Tsipora, Krista, Liz, Tom, Lora and Patricia. I could write a book on the all knitting talent we have here ... but I think I'll knit instead!
