All my favourite things together. Dyeing your own yarn! Knitting Shawls! Knitting Socks! Hanging out!
- Come and knit with Carmen Ditzler, knitting instructor and designer of the Through the Rainbow Shawl.
- Join Master Dyer Andrea Revoy in her studio and dye two skeins of fingering weight yarn. (For shawls or socks or just because)
- Start to knit a shawl or socks- your choice!
- Join us and other knitters in the beautiful Creston Valley in Spring.
You will have the choice of two shawl patterns; Through the Rainbow Shawl by Carmen Ditzler or Vertice by Christine Dyck. Or you can choose to knit socks. (top down and toe up patterns to choose from) Tips and tricks will be shared for knitting shawls and socks. Note: this is not an instructional focus, but a focus on knitting, relaxing, and learning a few cool things.
