I forgot to mention I'm a lefty. Will I have to sit in front of a mirror or something? Can I be taught?  Undecided

Are you really a lefty? Cuz that explains a lot...

You have to have a mirror.  Please see the glass board for personal swapping opportunities.

Also, if I make my own wool yarn spun from Craftsterland's flock of sheep and bring it will there be a discount on my material cost?

C&C appreciated.

Of course. If you spin your own yarn from Craftsterland's sheep, your material cost would be approximately $550.  



hmmm that actually seems to be more....

I'm not sure what you mean by that, but I'm sure it's a good thing.

Yeah, I don't think this is quite the class for you.  There is a history of crochet class that may be more your speed.

Geez, thanks a lot!

I've sent in my application for this class, but I have a question: do I absolutely *need* two colours?  I really don't see why you can't do it with one...

I am confused by the term fair isle...is there an island in Nebraska? I thought you had to have water to be an island?  Is Nebraska on a lake?
