I took three classes:
Friday – I took The Unpattern – Top Down Sweater, with Karen Alfke.
It was fabulous! I can’t believe how easy it is to knit a sweater with circular needles. There is no seaming at all! We knit a teddy bear sized sweater in class so we were able to knit each part of the sweater. We also brought in a sweater that fits us well to measure and plan a new sweater. I even bought yarn (duh) to make my first top down sweater.
On Saturday morning – I took Hole-istic lace with Maureen Mason Jamieson.
I can’t say I learned too much new stuff – but I did pick up some good tips for knitting lace.
On Saturday afternoon I took Knitting on the Edge with Melissa Leapman. and we made all kinds of gorgeous edges I can't wait to try on real things.
Here are some photos of the weekend....
