This Saturday I will be teaching a class and signing books at the Knitting Basket in Richmond. I already told you about it, but I just thought I’d remind you. I will be teaching the technique for top down construction using magic loop (which I will also be teaching).
I’ll be using my Francis beret pattern. We will be using Nashua Grand Opera as a substitute for Tilli Tomas silk, but it is still a one skein project. This yarn is very warm with little bits of glitter running through it, so it is also very pretty, and comes in a great variety of colors. You can substitute almost any yarn for the Francis beret pattern. The Grand Opera, being wool, will make a great winter hat instead of the silk, which is better for spring.
The class will be 2 hours long starting at 12:00, then there is a meet and greet from 2:00 -3:00. And then at 3:30 I will be signing my book (you should call ahead and have your copy of the book put aside). There is a Starbucks right upstairs so between 3:00 and 3:30 will be a perfect time for me to to go get a coffee and some food. Caramel Macchiato – yum!
Check out the Knitting Basket website to get all of the details.
See you Saturday…
