Don't miss this very special workshop with Pat Dyksterhuis!  Our long time teacher will be in town for another short period from her new home in Toronto!  We are offering a 4 hour Fair Isle Workshop using the stitch pattern pictured below to create a Fairisle cowl to teach the basics of this traditional patterning in the round two handed with steeks which will enable you to knit any garment with the techniques necessary.  We have contacted the designer Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed for permission to use his gorgeous design for our workshop, as we haven't enough time to design and create a sample due to the last minute decision!  Pat will bring her Beaumont Tam with her to show you!  We have the lovely warm Classic Elite Fresco (wool, alpaca & angora) in 2 colours, 5357 AND 5367 @ $11.95 for you to purchase as a main colour, and if you have a stash of leftover natural fiber yarns around the same weight (gauge 26 stitches to 4 inches) on a 3.75mm you are welcome to bring along to use as other colours, or come on down and restash, we have Silk garden Lite or Silk Garden sock weight which would be a gorgeous striping affect with 1 ball, along with the Fresco!

Learn new skills by building a block by block afghan by taking this workshop with the help of Sarah Garland.  Choose your yarns here, you may buy one ball per month or purchase them all at once if dyelot is a concern, We haven't much room for holding yarns anymore.  Suggested yarns are Hikoo Simpliworsted (recommended) as used in the book, Rowan Pure Wool Worsted Superwash, or Hikoo Simplicity, the latter 2 will result in a smaller blanket. 

 

OR Building in Color class with 3 colours and 24 skeins of Hikoo Simplicity if you are a more experienced knitter who wishes to learn colorwork.


Building With Lace

Building with Lace is the third class project book from reknowned knitter and teacher, Michelle Purl Hunter. It is a carefully designed sequence of patterns that introduce knitters to lace work starting with the basics and working towards more difficult patterns. This work follows the same format as Michelle’s earlier books, Building Blocks and Building in Color , and has been a long awaited addition to this educational series.  Video support is offered on her website as well.
