|Does this line ever move?|
That's Eileen at the back of the line griping about the wait. Her name is Eileen because she's always lurching.
The girls are wearing dresses 7, 8 and 9, and their matching cardigans. If I had another dressform she'd be wearing dress 10 and it's partner cardigan, a just-about-done round yoke number.
But the girls are going to have to wait just a little longer -- I will present them one per week as this project wraps up. I have other news:
Are you busy on the weekend of January 17, 18 & 19?
I would love if you could join me for
Friday, January 17: Opening Night Wine and Cheese Reception 6pm - 9pm, cost $10
Gudrun Johnston will be giving a presentation on the Shetland Islands and signing books, Thea Colman will have a trunk show of her exquisite knitwear, and I will have my Dress + Cardigan project on display.
On Saturday, January 18, I'll be teaching
A Dozen Ways to Use Variegated Yarn
from 9 am until 1 pm. But it looks like the class has sold out!
On Sunday, January 19, I will be teaching
Fried Chicken Mittens, Two at a Time
from 9 am until 1 pm.Learn to knit two Fried Chicken mittens at the same time. I have rewritten my Fried Chicken Mitten pattern to include many sizes and detailed instructions on how to knit them simultaneously. The Fried Chicken Mitten has a sculpted thumb much like a chicken drumstick. It fits well and serves well as a go to pattern. Best of all, no second mitten to knit! The pattern will not be launched until January 31; be first to learn the technique.
Notes: Students will be learning the magic loop method of knitting two tubes simultaneously. They will be provided a printed copy of an unreleased pattern, modified to cater to the time restraints of the class. They will also be provided a digital copy of the same pattern, not modified. I will supply the yarn and stitch markers, as well as a new circular needle. I will need to charge a materials fee of $8 per student for the needle. It is imperative that we have the right tools.
Limit of 12 students. Cost : $68.27 + $8.00

Also, Thea will be teaching a design class on Saturday and Sunday. I have been a fan of Thea's for a long time: She has a keen eye for editing work and creating knitwear that is elegant and expressive.
In the meantime, I hope you're enjoying your season, whatever it may be.
