Just in case you've been hiding under a rock and missed it - I'm holding a Lace Knitting Workshop here in Canberra on Sunday May 6th...and I still have a couple of spots left.
I'm so excited about hosting a specialist teacher for this event, the very talented and lovely Fiona Donovan. Fiona brings a fresh and modern approach to knitting and has taught classes for the Knitters Guild (NSW) and yarn shops in and around Sydney. Plus she's popping down especially for the workshop, so I'm super-keen to show her a big Canberra welcome and have a full-house (10 participants) for the day.
Wondering what level of knitting is required? Well if you can knit, purl, cast on and off...then this workshop is for you! Fiona demystifies the art of knitting lace using 4.00mm knitting needles and 8ply so that you build your confidence before tackling the finer weight yarns.
Topics to be covered on the day include:
- circular cast on - emily ocker's circular cast on
- reading patterns - written out lace
- reading charts - and the different way they are written
- triangle shawl starts and construction
- provisional cast on and 2 cast offs for lace.
A list of materials required will be emailed to the participants prior to the day and a set of comprehensive notes will be provided during the class....hey I even throw in lunch and light refreshments.
If you want some inspiration head on over to Fiona's blog ...and these pictures below are of her gorgeous Grey Days Shawl made with Holst Garn Supersoft .
