I’m crossing one off the bucket list and heading to Stephen and Penelope in Amsterdam, baby! I’ll be giving a talk on Friday night entitled Camera Roll Full of Sweater Photos, and on Saturday, teaching:
In this class, we’ll discuss when bad things happen to good, well- loved knits, and how we can fix it. We’ll discuss basic repair tech- niques, as well as yarn structure and picking yarn for projects to make our knits last as long as possible. Experience needed: none.
Materials and homework: Please bring any handknit items that might need repair.
One of the most interesting and best parts about knitting is the huge variety of patterns available. But where does the inspiration for those patterns come from? In this class, we’ll talk about different forms of inspiration and different ways of thinking about knitting, and then explore methods and theory to bring those ideas to reality. This is a great class if you’re interested in designing, or just want to experi- ment with all the possibilities knitting has to offer! Must be comfort- able with stitch patterns, and have a willingness to experiment and play.
Materials and homework: A pencil and sketchbook, scrap yarn and needles for swatching ideas, and any items/photos/tearsheets that inspire you.
