Summer Workshops

I’ve been knitting my little fingers to the bone to get ready for a whole series of knitting workshops at River City Yarns in Edmonton starting next week.

When we moved 1 1/2 years ago, you may recall that all of my workshop samples went missing. They never showed up and it breaks my heart every time I think of all the samples, Addi Turbo needles and finished items that are lost. I had everything I needed for each workshop conveniently kitted up together.

For the past couple weeks, I’ve been having fun recreating all of the swatches for Strategies of Knitting with Self-Patterning Sock Yarns. It’s reminded me all over again about what a great workshop this is. I’ve made samples to illustrate what works and what doesn’t work when using these yarns. I leave nothing to the imagination so you can get great results from the yarn. That class is on Monday, August 1st.

I’m teaching many more classes, so check them out on the RCY website. Be sure to look at both the July and August calendars to see them all.

Later in August (Friday, the 12th) I’m also teaching in Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. There’s a new yarn shop there called Unwind Knit & Fibre Lounge and I’ll be teaching two workshops that day.

  1. I believe a similar catastrophe happened to knitting designer and teacher Beth Brown-Reinsel (Ravelry: bethbrknits): all of her sample sweaters and other materials for teaching were stolen from the trunk of her car. Heartbreaking. I’m so sorry to know this happened to you.

    1. Thanks for your kind thoughts. I’m slowly but surely reknitting the lost samples. I do wonder what the person who took or found the bag of samples thought of all those little squares and partially knit swatches and single socks.
