Upcoming workshops

BC’s Creative Expo

This coming weekend I’m teaching four knitting workshops at BC’s Creative Expo at Canada Place in Vancouver. It’s being billed as a consumer education trade show and in addition to classes, seminars and stage shows, there will be a vendor’s mall with 45 exhibitors. Many of the crafts are represented such as scrap booking, quilting, rubber stamping and of course knitting.

On Friday, I’ll be teaching …

Beaded Beauty beaded scarf corrugated slip stitch peacock swatch

… how to knit a lacey beaded scarf with prestrung beads and my favourite, Strategies for Knitting with Self-Patterning Sock Yarns. This class explores stitch patterns that work and those that don’t work with self-patterning yarns as well as the pros and cons of working with them.

On Saturday, I’ll be teaching …

cables thumb gusset

… a cabling class in the morning which is for advanced beginners who would like to know how to cross their stitches. Later in the day I’m teaching the t4echniques for knitting a glove and how to get it to fit. Both thumb gusset and fingers will be addressed and by the end of the class you’ll have the skills you’ll need to make your own glove that fits. The basics for this class are based on my Guess Who? glove pattern.
