I spent the last four days at Fiber College on Penobscot Bay. What did I learn?
Rudy Amman, and also how my spinning wheel works, and that I am far behind in my wheel maintenance. I walked in a beginner, I walked out with confidence and the tools to spin like Ellen. From now on, I'm going to make Ellen Yarn.
I learned what makes a delicious photo from Mary Jane Mucklestone. I brought my sweaters with me and a group of us ducked away to a dreamy little cabin in the woods, oceanfront, and we clicked away.
Elizabeth Green Musselman. Elizabeth also taught me how to make a killer knot, well actually, a frog closure, but I plan to put this knot everywhere in the near future.
I learned sweater construction using the percentage method from Jackie Fee. I have had the pleasure of meeting Jackie on several occasions before, but this was the first time I have heard her full lecture. If you have the opportunity, do not miss it - you will walk away an empowered knitter.
Josette McWilliams. All the rules went out the window. I think I may have found my Ellen Yarn.
