Heading West

In a few days I’ll board another plane to Portland, Oregon, where I’ll teach for three days, then take a week-long retreat in Port Ludlow, Washington.

I’ll be at Twisted Yarn Shop  on Friday, Nov. 6, and will teach Shadow Knitting in the morning and Intro to Sweater Design in the afternoon.

Then I head over to Happy Knits for two days. On Saturday, November 7, I’ll teach Socks at Any Gauge and Matching Cast-Ons and Bind-Offs.

On Sunday, November, 8, I’ll teach Top-Down Sweaters with Raglan shaping. The class also has an option for working circular yoke instead of raglan shaping.

After a few days of “down” time, I’ll head to Port Ludlow, Washington, to partake in the November Strung Along Retreat hosted by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. Besides spending time with Stephanie, I’ll finally get a chance to take a class from Judith MacKenzie, which thrills me beyond belief.

I’ve managed to pack my folding spinning wheel in my largest suitcase, padded with all the materials I’ll need for the classes at Twisted Yarn Shop and Happy Knits. Perfect!
