Fair Isle Workshop with Tanya Thomann (2 weeks)
Sundays, September 10 and 17, 1-3pm • $60
Have you always wanted to tackle two-color knitting but been reluctant to try it alone? This is the workshop for you! With Tanya’s guidance, you’ll learn how to knit holding one color of yarn in each hand and how to follow colorwork charts with ease. Tanya will provide a hat pattern for the workshop and pass along tips and tricks for catching floats, keeping your knitting loose, and adjusting for gauge differences as you work. Go forth and make beautiful things!
