teaching, etc.

knitlab colour workshop
Rosemary and her friends at the Constant Knitter in Francis Street, Dublin have been encouraging me to try some teaching – a couple of workshops are lined up.
The first (23 Feb) is full up, so there will be a second on the 23rd March.
The workshops will look at colour in knitting.
I’ll be showing a selection of knitlab swatches and talking about colour inspiration and techniques, and then there will be a knitting session to try out some of the techniques.

I noticed love2knitnpurl’s mesmerising Shetland Ruffles on Ravelry this morning:

Still working on pdf, photos and web page details for the pleats scarf/wrap pattern:

The face of knitlab appears again –
the worried expression can be interpreted as “where’s that treat you promised??”
