Aloha, everyone!

This is Lisa Louie, posting from Maui, with supply list and homework for the upcoming classes. As Dez mentioned, Gauge Games during regular Knit Night is a fundraiser for the Battered Women's Shelter. Cost for Hot Stuff and Putting More Art in Your Craft is $25 each class, or $45 for both for early bird registration. Later registration is $35 each or $65 for both.

Gauge Games:


tape measure or ruler
paper if desired
calculator if desired
a few straight or "lollipop" pins
about 50-100 yards of relatively smooth, medium or light colored worsted weight yarn- same as you used for your homework
appropriate sized needle ( or crochet hook if crocheter)


Cast on 26 stitches in above yarn and needle. Work about 6 rows of garter stitch, then work 2 stitches garter, 20 stitches stockinette, 3 stitches garter. Work until piece is about 3 or 4 inches long. Leave on needle, bring to class.

Putting More Art in Your Craft


3 or more different colors, textures, fibers of a fairly small amount of yarns. Leftover skeins work well. You will need somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 yards for this project.

A selection of assorted size dpns or short circular needles or if you are a crocheter, a selection of crochet hooks

stitch markers
notebook/ paper
beads and other embellishments if desired

an open mind and willingness to explore


You will be creating a small hand made bag during this class. Please create the bottom before you come. Work either a square or a circle about 3-4 inches across before you come. Bind off.

Hot Stuff:


Bring a pattern or patterns that you would like to adapt to warm weather wearin' with you. Pen/ pencil and something to write on will also be necessary.

This is a discussion/ question and answer type of class instead of a hands on learn a new technique kind of class. Yes, you can knit in class as we won't be working on a specific project.

If you've got questions, let me know. I hope this covers everything.

Aloha and mahalo,

Lisa Louie
Kahului, Maui, Hawaii
