February Lady Sweater class - February 2010

This class is FULL, but we will be offering it again in the Fall!

Helena is thrilled to be teaching the aptly named February Lady Sweater in February. This is the number one sweater on ravelry for a reason (Over 7,000 made! ravelry link)! It's a fantastic 'first sweater' for an advanced beginner. Beginners can easily omit the lacework and do a solid garter-stitch sweater.
