5/18/08 : Great American Aran Afghan Class at Threadbear in Lansing, MI
Squares covered will be Hanna Burns and Kathleen Carty.  We'll work more on cabling without a cable needle, learn short rows as used for the Carty square, discuss the pick-up method Carty uses and an alternative method.  For Burns, we'll be discussing cabling from the wrong side and some of the pitfalls involved in this square, which is much more complicated than it looks. Because there are 2 extra weeks between this class and the June meeting, we'll also cover McIntire.  While the stitches aren't much different from what we've been doing, we'll be using them to advance skills without using a cable needle.  Lots to cover, little time!
