It’s the dog days of summer, but I’m busily planning for fall. (This is my friend Sissy at Lost Lake, Mt. Hood National Forest, last week.)
First off, I’ll be teaching at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in September. This local festival is just the right size, with lots of things to do. I’m teaching my Brioche Pastiche Hat, and Slip Stitch Knitting on Saturday, September 28.
And right after that, I’m doing another fall shawl retreat with crochet designer Laurinda Reddig, October 11-13 at Quinn Mountain in the Columbia River Gorge. I’m teaching my Lucky Star Shawl, with ways to embiggen those stars. Laurinda was inspired by it to design her new Star Bright Shawl, which just took 3rd place for accessories at the Crochet Guild of America last week. Knit or crochet, you’ll be seeing (and making) stars! Registration is open now.
In November, I’m teaching in Columbus, OH at Vogue Knitting Live. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity! I’ll tell you all about it in a separate blog post in just a bit.
But summer isn’t over yet, so I’ll also be showing you my linen project…soon!
Pretty puppers in a pretty place!
Sounds like you have lots to look forward to!
That’s our Sissy dog! Well, my friend’s dog, but we do a lot of walks. She’s the smartest dog I’ve ever met.
Fall is going to be fun, and next year is shaping up nicely, too!
Did you ever make a tutorial for the garter stitch tab using the YOs? You were still pondering some change to avoid a hump in the July 2018 posting that I read.
Yes! It’s listed on my tutorial page in the cast on section, but here it is: http://tinyurl.com/gartertab
Because of the way these crescent shawls are shaped, you can’t really eliminate the hump, but you can reduce how pointy it is. And blocking helps a lot, too!
My gosh – you have some exciting events coming up! The festival and retreat sound like so much fun 🙂 And VK Live, too! Are you thinking about teaching at VKL when they are in Seattle next spring?
I think fall is going to be so much fun! And we’ve talked about VKLive in Seattle, so I’m hoping that happens, too!
Oh, I hope so! I plan on being at Seattle VKL, and would love to take one of your classes!
