STS MW Mkt SnSTITCHES Midwest is only a few weeks away and I’m looking forward to teaching my two three hour classes, Intarsia Ins and Outs and Stripes of All Types. The first has a very hands-on technique focus. The second focusses on stripes from a design perspective, though we do a lot of knitting to see how they can be used within our craft.

I’ve also got nine (number 9, number 9, number 9…) Market Sessions (what’s a Market Session? post from last year) on my schedule this time! Try Continental Knitting, Stranded Color, or Knitting in Both Directions (that’s from the right needle to the left—whoa). Or explore some edging options with Edgier Edges or Pleasing Plaits (NEW!). Or for something completely different, learn how to tie sailor’s knots with rope and take home reference handout so you can tie them in I-cord at home.

I’ve included the schedule below: as you can see, there are a lot of other choices (registration page here)! And remember the free Learn to Knit and Learn to Crochet classes. Drag those friends that keep saying they want to learn to the show, and we’ll teach them!

See you in Schaumburg!
