Do you get stuck when choosing colors for your knitting project? Do people tell you you're in a rut? Are you longing to have sweaters and shawls in stunning color combinations?  Then this 2 hour workshop is for you.  We will go over a number of ways to glean inspiration for your knitting, as well as experiment with different colors in front of us to make combinations that you love. Great for lovers of bright colors as well as neutrals; there is something for everyone in this color workshop.  We will learn from each other during the two hours of classroom time and by the end, you should go home brimming with ideas for your next knitting project.

Homework: None!

Materials:  Just a sense of fun and a willingness to think "differently".

Length: 2 hours plus and additional hour of individual color help for knitting patterns that you'd like to knit.

Goldfish Memory Workshop  2:00pm to 5:00pm with Casapinka  $75.00*

Mira Cole from Baah will also be in the shop!!

 

 

Urban legend has it that a goldfish has a memory or attention span (I’ve heard both) of about 3 seconds, or the time it takes to swim around its bowl. I can be like this, and at those times, I just want a nice big knitting project that will keep me occupied while letting me watch bad eighties airplane movies on Youtube. In fact, I just saw a great one starring Cheryl Ladd. I can tell: you guys are jealous!

Slipped stitches, little garter stripes, bigger garter stripes, simple lace, stockinette stripes, that’s what you’ll find here.

This is a parallelogram and is knit on the bias (see schematic at left.) You need 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn, 400 yards each. I advise a very light skein, a bright or bolder skein, and something in between. If the colors are too similar the slipped stitches won’t show up.

Final Measurements 
This is a parallelogram (see schematic) 
Approximately 76” long by 17” deep

*plus materials - with this class you will receive 10% off your Baah Yarn choices for the workshop. You will also receive 2 FREE Drop In Clinic sessions for followup with the Yarn del Sol teacher of your choice!

 

Sunday, September 30th

11:00am to 2:00pm Llama Drama Workshop with Casapinka  $75*

Peru was the travel destination for Llama Drama and was inspired by the colorful clothes, markets, and textiles of Peru.

If you haven’t tried mosaic knitting, please don’t be intimidated. You only use one color at a time and it is all garter stitch. Once you do the “business side” (the Right Side row), you simply do exactly what you did going back on the wrong side. So, a slipped stitch gets slipped, and a knit stitch gets knit. There is a separate file for written directions if you don’t enjoy charts.
