Come join me for a knit along! I’m hosting the July knit-along on Craftsy. We’re making the shawl that you see in these pics – my new Blue Angel Shawl.
This project will teach you some fun new skills and explain some things that you may have been doing in your knitting for years, but maybe haven’t really understood why. The workshop includes the pattern, along with in-depth instructions and high quality close-up photos of each step. Craftsy will send you one beautiful skein of Cascade Heritage yarn in Como Blue to complete the project. Plus, I will be responding to questions and providing help along the way.
With my guidance, knitters intermediate and above will be able to participate in and enjoy the workshop. Won’t you join the fun? Grab a tall iced tea, your favorite patio chair, and knit along with me! Click here to join!
Note: this is not a video class, it’s a photo-based knit-along.
I studied mineralogy in school, so HAD to go to this event. We saw fossils and meteorites bought lots of beads to make jewelry. I’ve been studying the meanings and metaphysical properties of stones, and have collected a few that sounded interesting.
Moldavite, tiger’s eye, and rutilated quartz are some that I’ve recently gathered.
Here the girls and I are at the Denver Art Museum. They have lots of art activities for the kids to do while there.
This exhibit is interactive. The little dudes were drawn by a 3-year-old, and pressing various dials and sliding sliders make groups of them swirl and merge.
Usually I title this semi-annual post about the summer and winter trade show “TNNA wrap up” but I don’t have a ton to write about this one.
It was great to see everyone, and Craftsy threw a really fun event on Saturday.
Here’s one of my favorite pics from the whole weekend:
That’s my old knitting Yahoo Group buddy (yes, we were knitting together online pre-Ravelry!) Sarah Bible. Can you see what she’s wearing!? My first ever free pattern…the boobholder!! This pattern dates back to around 2003!
Here’s a blurry shot of Shirley Paden’s gorgeous dress on the fashion show runway:
And here’s one of a mysterious happening that you *might* have heard about on Twitter if you were tuned in on Friday night during the Yarn Thing dinner:
Look at this awesome goodie bag that Marly arranged:
Thank you, Hadaki, and all of Marly’s sponsors! Thank you, Knitty, for the darling project bag! Thank you TNNA for always being there and always inspiring me!
You may have noticed my fancy new sidebar badge…but in case you don’t stalk my sidebar on a regular basis, take a look!
I’m teaching at Interweave Knitting Lab this October in New Hampshire! I always love the Interweave events, they’re so well-run, and I find that the students are really prepared, genuinely love knitting, and are just a joy!
And…Barbara Walker is the keynote! I can’t WAIT!
Last year, I taught several sold-out sections of both “design your own top-down sweater” and “fit your knits.” This year I’ve added a new class as well… “color theory for knitters.”
I know these images are tiny, so click on them to see the descriptions on the event website.
