LoveFest!

Last January I was the Knit Doctor at the first-ever Loops retreat in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The other teachers were Romi Hill, who taught lace techniques and surgery, Andrea Mowry, who taught brioche and shawls, and Carson Demers, who taught knitting ergonomics.

As a special treat, owner Shelley Brander asked Ross of Yarn To Dye For to create a colorway for each of the four teachers (well, the three “real” teachers and me, the Knit Doctor). On the left is a photo of “my” skein in the colorway Loops Loves Ann.

I love the colorway and asked Ross if he’d dye a semi-solid to pair with it. After a bit of back and forth, we settled on a rich teal color that I’ve named Ann Loves Loops.

I’m now in the process of combining the two color in a crescent shawl. If I do the yarn justice, a pattern will be forthcoming! I plan to name it LoveFest!
