|playing with Tunisian Cables while crocheting a scarf|
for the 2012 60/60 Challenge
Fortunately for me Kim Guzman posted the answer on Facebook: she posted about a blog post she had written about her Tunisian Cables & Lace class being offered on AnniesAttic.com! I watched the preview and decided to sign up. Since I am a CGOA member I plugged in my 'members discount' code and got 15% off the class. (sweet!!)
This would be my first experience in taking an online class -- I really didn't know what to expect. Boy, I was in for a treat! I loved it!! I plan on taking more online classes in the future.
While at the moment I am not using the pattern Kim provided with the class, I am having fun with the cable stitch (I omitted the lace part and beefed up the number of stitches required for the cabling). And, I'm using up a bit of yarn stash too -- because we all know The Big E is coming up, and that means a trip to Webs! (Whoot!)
So lets see: I get to take a class utilizing my CGOA membership, I get to learn something new, I get to use up some stash -- and then later replenish it -- all while hand-crocheting a simple scarf that will benefit my local community. Priceless!
