Workshop Overview

This knitting workshop offers several ways to make your plain knitting fancy! Drawing inspiration from nature, we'll start with elongated fancy stitches that evoke the beauty of flowers, stars, butterflies, and bees. Moving forward, we'll delve into the art of color pooling, a hot technique that is the current darling of indie dyers. To add a finishing touch, we'll discover the art of embellishment, incorporating herringbone and other braids to elevate our knits to new heights. Join us for a creative journey where you'll learn to infuse flair into your knitting, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
