Learn to make your own jewelry, knitted socks

Novice jewelry makers will learn how to design unique jewelry using wire and beads in a course being offered by Plymouth Community Education and Recreation.

Each participant in Basic Jewelry Making, ages 12 and up, will create two beautiful pieces of jewelry with the help of instructor Karen Klumpyan.

The class will meet from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12 in Room C102 at Plymouth High School. A second, identical session will be offered Wednesday, Dec. 8. There is a cost per session that includes all materials.

Handmade socks are a treasure, and if you can already read a pattern, knit and purl you will have fun adding to your skills in a class offered by Plymouth Community Education and Recreation.

Participants in “Knitted Socks,” taught by Sharon Schlundt, will choose one of two styles, samples of which can be seen in the display case across from the district office at the high school.

The easier one requires a set of size 8 double-pointed needles and 4 ounces of 4-weight yarn (not pure wool). The second option requires a set of size 2 double-pointed needles and 100 grams of 1-weight superfine sock yarn.

The class will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays from Oct. 12 to Nov. 2 in Room C103 of Plymouth High School. There is a cost for the class.

Students should bring the needles and yarn to the first class, along with a three-ring binder to hold the pattern.

For more information on either class, visit, call 892-5068 or visit Plymouth Community Education and Recreation on the north end of Plymouth High School, 125 Highland Ave.

Input sought on future non-motorized projects

Sheboygan County may receive additional funds for the Non-motorized Transportation Pilot Program through an extension of the legislation the program falls under.

In an effort to expedite the processes required under the legislation, county planning staff and the volunteer Citizen’s Advisory and Technical Committee (CATC) would like to have projects ready to move forward when final word is received on the status of the additional funding.

County planning staff and the CATC have identified six projects for funding consideration and are seeking public input. Each of the projects falls within the goals, or is identified in the Sheboygan County Pedestrian and Bicycle Comprehensive Plan. The County Board adopted this plan in 2007 after having roughly 20 public input sessions throughout the county.

Two public open houses have been set to discuss the potential projects mentioned above. A short presentation by county planning staff will take place a half hour into the meeting.

The first open house will take place Monday, Oct. 18 at the Sheboygan County Highway Administration Building, 1211 N. 23rd St., Sheboygan, from 4-6 p.m. The second will take place Tuesday, Oct. 19 in the Sheboygan Falls Municipal Building Auditorium, 375 Buffalo St., from 5-7 p.m.

Anyone who cannot attend one of these open houses may direct comments or questions to: Aaron Brault, Interim Director; Sheboygan County Planning and Conservation Department; 508 New York Ave., Sheboygan 53081, or call (920) 459-3060.
