Introduction to Lace Knitting with Kate Atherley at Fiber Friday via ZOOM!

We are thrilled to have her lead a three-part series which will give you everything from the fundamentals and hidden secrets that elevate it into an art form. Whether you are a lace novice, or just getting started with it and want to build your skills and confidence, you'll find step by step instructions tailored just for you - plus lots of inspiring support along the way. Discover how fun and rewarding this classic craft can be as we uncover why knitters love creating intricate patterns with beautiful results. Starting with the basics - How Lace Works, and moving to more skills, and important techniques like preventing and dealing with mistakes, at the end, everyone will be ready to tackle all sorts of lace projects! We?ll end the class with your first scarf or shawl project well underway.

Sweater Design Workshop with Ann Budd via ZOOM!

This is a class on designing your own sweater from scratch. The construction will follow the Modified Drop-Shoulder Sweaters in The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns. The book is not necessary, but you may find a copy to be helpful. The advantage to designing your own sweater is that you're not limited by the yarn, gauge, or size given in a pattern. For this, which may be the first sweater you design on your own, we'll follow modified drop-shoulder construction worked from the bottom up, which is easiest for new designers once you've determined your stitch pattern for the body, the armholes and neck are easily shaped with decreases and the sleeve caps require no shaping.
