I have a couple new classes coming soon!
First up: Shall We Dance. Learn how to tame your skein with planned pooling! Space dyed yarns can be so pretty in the skein, but so jumbly when you knit them. Learn how to tame the color monster with planned color pooling. This Aran weight cowl in your choice of three simple stitch patterns will give you a quick jump start into planned pooling. Make the colors dance by adjusting your tension.
Instructions are given so you can find your magic number to cast on, in order to make the colors pool.
Scarlet Tang of Huckleberry Knits dyed a special 2 Ply BFL Aran for this class at For Yarn’s Sake. We have two colorways, Rock Candy (rainbow) and Legion of Boom (blues and greens, Seahawks colors). The class is this Sunday, May 19; register by phone or on the website. Hope to see you there!
My other new class is Next Steps in Brioche at Northwest Wools. I’ve taught four beginning brioche classes there since the beginning of the year. It’s time to move on to the next thing: increases and decreases! We’re using my Heliotrope Cowl and Heliotrope Hat patterns. Class will cover increases and decreases, and fixing mistakes. (Not that we’ll make any, right?) This class is on Friday, May 31. Call Northwest Wools to register, 503-244-5024.
So glad I finally played with planned pooling, and I’m still deep in a sea of brioche! What new techniques do you want to learn?
More nifty patterns and classes! I wish I lived close enough to take some of them 🙂
Come to Red Alder next year! (Formerly Madrona)
I would like to! Seattle is a pretty quick flight for me. I was so bummed I missed out on Madrona – so glad something has started as a kind of replacement!
