This session offers a 3-Day version of the Creative Knitting Retreat. Tap into your creativity, as you design knitwear of your choosing, with assistance from Sandy and Mary. Perhaps you want to start with a pattern or sketch, customize by adding or subtracting features, or change yarn and gauge…? Whatever your choice, they’ll help you through it. This class is also open to knitters who want to solve current knitting problems. Bring your questions and/or project.
Sandy De Master and Mary Germain have been knitting most of their lives and teaching it for 30+ years. Mary owned The Wool Works yarn shop in Milwaukee from 1985-96, and Sandy taught spinning there. Early on, they became intrigued with and focused on ethnic knitting. They published a PieceWork magazine article on Latvian mittens, “Messages In Mittens,” and traveled together to Latvia and Estonia to study local knitting techniques. Mary has returned several times, and Sandy went to Shetland to investigate Fair Isle knitting. Together they continue to teach and learn more about Baltic and Fair Isle knitting. www.marygtheknitter.blogspot.comNo tags for this post.
