I'd love to teach at your guild, shop or retreat! If you're interested in hosting me, please contact me for my complete workshop lineup.
Eternal Knot Baby Blanket
Have you heard of traveling cables? These cables travel so
far the fabric can't contain them! This sumptuous and thickly
patterned blanket creates the illusion of a knot woven onto
itself without end. We'll also learn a sanity-saving technique
for correcting mis-crossed cables. With lots of loops for
little hands to hold onto, the completed blanket will make a
wonderful baby gift. Students may also continue the sample we
work in class as a scarf.
I'll be teaching this workshop at Stitches West in Santa Clara, CA in February - Sign up here!
Lace and Loop Scarf
This complex, asymmetrical scarf will have you daydreaming
about corkscrews and rollercoasters as you follow the twists
and turns from start to finish. Gravity-defying loops of
I-cord wrap around the neck, while a spreading bell of simple
lace dangles below. As fun to wear as it is to make! We'll
cover basic lace techniques and I-cord in class.

Knitting from the center out is a "revolutionary old
technique" for making just about anything. Working on
double-pointed needles and beginning with just a few stitches,
our work will grow outwards with each spin around the needles.
In this class we'll learn the Disappearing Loop cast-on and
knit a beautiful pinwheel pattern. What you begin in class
could become a coaster, a holiday ornament, a hat, a baby
blanket, a pillow, or a tablecloth -- the choice is yours!
