Will you be attending this weekend’s Vogue Knitting Live? I hope to see you there! This year I’m concentrating on teaching design. On Saturday, I’ll be giving a slide show lecture on pattern stitch development. I’ll describe my process of coming up with new pattern stitches and talk about the process involved in designing the final product. I love to go picture-heavy with my talks, so expect a lushly illustrated presentation!
Later in the afternoon, I’m giving a hands-on workshop (for the first time ever!) about making up cable stitches, like the ones used in Cloos (below) and Aeneus (right). I’ll be teaching a few of my favorite cable constructions and talking about how to combine them to “draw” with cables. You’ll be knitting your own cabled medallion by the end of the class and will be prepared to discover new cable panels and medallions on your own. I just found out that this session is sold out, but I’ll be teaching this class again on Sunday morning. There are only a few spots left, so hurry!
