Tonight I had three brand new knitters in my class. I showed them the two knitting styles of English and Continental and the pros and cons between the two. They decided on Continental. It was a great class. They were so excited! They want to knit everything I have in the studio. Wrongly, I think sometimes every body knows how to knit. Then I have this opportunity to teach these brand new knitters and then realize there is still people out there who do not know this fabulous craft.
I went Stitches with Sierra and Jeanne, stayed overnight and it was so much fun. Weaving was everywhere at the show, especially rigid heddle. I bought some yarn for weaving. I hope to weave these projects up and students can purchase them on line. This is a picture of a weaving kit from the Purlescence Yarns booth located in Sunnyvale, CA. The yarn company is called Lunatic Fringe Yarns. This can be done on a rigid heddle or floor loom. I can’t wait to get started.
While there, I met Stephen West, Anna Zilboorg and Alastair Post-Quinn (taught me double knitting).
I’m going to start saving up now for next year
