Faire Isle for All with Ann Weaver

New to colorwork? Learn to knit Fair Isle or stranded knitting using two colors per round. Want to learn a new method of knitting Fair Isle? Learn to knit with one color in each hand, two colors in your right hand, or two colors in your left hand.

In this workshop, we’ll use the Madison Park hat to practice Fair Isle knitting. This hat uses small, intuitive colorwork patterns that enable you to focus on your technique. There are no long floats, so you won’t need to worry about catching your yarn when working with two colors. By the time you finish the hat, you’ll be comfortable with your chosen method of Fair Isle knitting.

No Risk, All Reward STEEKS! with Ann Weaver

Eyeing colorwork cardigan patterns? Tired of working purl rows on Stockinette cardigans? Afraid to cut your knitting? Overcome your fear with NO RISK!

In this workshop, you’ll steek old or thrifted sweaters (bring your own or purchase one from Ann’s collection!). You don’t have to knit anything in preparation! You’ll work through all the steps of steeking a sweater, and you’ll be ready—and excited—to steek your own work.

We’ll be doing crocheted and hand-sewn steeks on the sweaters. Ann will demonstrate and provide examples of both methods and discuss the pros and cons of each. You’ll leave the workshop with a booklet of photo tutorials for all the techniques discussed.
