Slater Mill in Pawtucket Rhode Island is one of my favorite places to teach. There is such history there and the folks that run the event are the nicest in the world. On Friday night is a reception and a book signing with Deborah Newton, consummate pro and author of the unequaled tome Designing Knitwear. She’ll be signing copies of her book Finishing School . Finishing, the most important part of knitting, made fun! Yes indeed my dears. From 5-9 Cash Wine bar, not to be missed!

Saturday I’ll be teaching Andean Intarsia which I learned myself from patient Andean villagers. Mind bending and delightful! You will not believe what you will learn. I’ll bring along some fantastic examples from my Chullo collection for you to marvel over.

Sunday what better way to spend the day than knitting Fair Isle socks? Easy or complex you can choose, we’ll cover the basics and explore beyond the basics. Color, pattern and technique, there is always something new to learn.
