The workshops at River City Yarns in Edmonton were wonderful. I had great fun teaching them – I really enjoy sharing with other knitters.
I think my new favourite workshop is Making Marvelous Mittens. Cynthia at River City Yarns gave it that name and I think I’ll continue to use it. We experiment with the various effects possible with knitting with a double strand of self-patterning yarn.
I had a great group of ladies, most of whom attended more than one workshop and one who attended all three workshops (Hi Jan!). Sunday was a bit exciting as there were police cruisers parked outside when we arrived and we witnessed an arrest in the building! Not to worry, the knitters were all safe.
I love the shop. They carry a wide range of interesting yarns and fibres. They are continually changing things around so every time I visit I discover new things. In the time since they’ve opened they’ve expanded and now have a couple of good teaching spaces so that more than one class can be held at the same time.
