  • Advanced Two Color Brioche – In this class, we will knit a patterned brioche cowl in the round. Just by using two colors of yarn and the brioche technique combined with increases and decreases the knitter can create a two sided fabric with interesting design and texture. If you have taken my Intro to Two Color Brioche or have prior experience with brioche it’s time to take the next steps!
  • Intro to Mosaic Knitting – Mosaic knitting patterns are created using two colors and slipped stitches. Each color is knit without stranding the second color. Instead of stranding, the contrasting color stitch is slipped to create the pattern.
  • Crochet Your Own Adventure – Whether you’ve just taken Crochet Basics 101 or have been crocheting for years. Pick a project and learn new skills! We’ve picked a few projects to choose from depending on your skill level. Start one project the first week and start another project the second week if you want. Or use both weeks to do 1 project. Project based classes help you learn a new skill and give you something to show for it.
  • Entrelac Knitting – a clever knitting technique that creates a fabric that appears to be woven. There is no weaving involved, instead the knitter uses short rows to work sections individually. By strategically using decreases and picking up stitches, the woven pattern emerges. A multi-colored yarn with a long repeat makes color work easy but the knitter can also use different colors of yarn in each section to create their own color work pattern. Changing colors is not necessary to do entrelac but it does enhance the woven affect.
  • Stranded Fingerless Mitts – Stranded knitting is a knitting technique used to create patterns using multiple colors of yarn. The use of multiple colors makes the knitted fabric look quite complex. But don’t be fooled, only two colors are used in any given row and the knitting is usually worked in the round making it easy to see the pattern.
  • Finishing Workshop – The pieces have been knitted and blocked. The pattern says weave in ends and finish – huh? No more explanation than that, now what? The finishing workshop is for you! Bring those pieces to the workshop and learn how to put it all together like a pro.
  • Color Knitting – Learn how to pick colors and add color to your knitting. In this workshop we will explore different ways to make color decisions when knitting as well as learn different ways to add color to your knitting.
