Another Class In The Books!

The past 2 weekends I’ve spent Saturday afternoons doing something I totally love to do – teaching knitting students a new technique!IMG_8926

I taught stranded color work using my Fresh Chroma Slouch pattern at Yarn & Coffee in Santa Fe, New Mexico.IMG_8931

Seeing the hat worked up in so many different color choices – raiders, classic, modern – they all look great and give the hat totally different a feel.IMG_8927

One of the hardest things to learn when taking on stranded knitting is learning how to float the yarn at the correct gauge.  A little blocking really does wonders for a stranded work, but if your floats are too tight, no amount of blocking can work out the puckering that is likely to occur.IMG_8922

My next class will be based around my Sweet Summer Rays shawl and will give beginners a good shawl experience!  It will take place on June 1st and 8th, from 1-4pm.  If you’re in the area, call Yarn & Coffee to sign up!
