I’m lucky to be teaching at some fantastic events this year. It will be great to get back in the classroom, I’m really looking forward to it after these past few months of working only on books.
First class is next week right here in my own neighborhood, at the Penobscot Marine Museum, as part of their winter program “Keeping Warm”. I’m doing it as a benefit so all proceeds go directly to the museum, which has a great textile collection.
Stranded Knitting Traditions Workshop
Join me in Searsport Maine where we’ll explore the wonderful, colorful world of stranded knitting. This beautiful folkloric knitting tradition occurs all around the world from Fair Isle and the Shetland Islands to Scandinavia, South America and throughout Central Asia. Stranded knitting is using more than one color in each round of knitting. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, Church Street, Searsport. $30 non-members, $25 members. All funds donated directly to Penobscot Marine Museum. For more information contact the Museum.
We’ll be practicing with a small sample worked in the round. Being thrifty Mainers, I ask you to bring yarn from your stash in at least two colors with high contrast. Bring more colors if you like, the more the merrier. Worsted weight or DK weight preferred. You will need either a 16″ circular needle, or double pointed needles that are a suitable size for the yarn you’ve chosen, a good place to look is the ball band for suggested needle sizes.
So that we can get right in knitting, for homework I’d like you to cast on 96 stitches if you’ve chosen a circular needle, or 48 stitches if you’re using double pointed needles. Join for working in the round. K1 p1 rib for one inch.

I may add one or two more events so be sure to check back.
