I will be joining Fiona Ellis, Susan B. Anderson, Patty Lyons, Nicki Epstein, and Michelle Hunter at Webs’ first Spring Retreat, May 2-5, 2019. Registration opens January 17th.
I’ll be teaching Combination Knitting, Finishing, Intarsia, and a crowd favorite, Steeks for the Timid.
This is a retreat in the truest sense, a weekend away, moments of peace and quiet, a chance to visit Vermont with your needles and yarn and knit with like-minded crafters who are equally excited about learning new tips and techniques.
We will focus on intarsia and techniques that are related to intarsia, refreshing this classic technique through contemporary applications. We’ll begin with an intarsia introduction, then we’ll learn more about the eddy shells. On Sunday, we’ll conclude by working on a beautifully simple and graphic mitten in the round designed specifically for this event, practicing various stranding options and possible embellishments.
So much wow factor in this class, you really should come if you’ve ever wondered what all the fuss is about. Don’t be scared: this is a painless introduction to cutting open something you’ve knit in the round. There’s a small amount of homework required. Contact the shop for for more information.
