Last weekend I was honoured to host a workshop for the Kitchener Waterloo Knitters' Guild.
2011 is the year of colourwork for the KW Guild, and the topic of my workshop was Fair Isle. In the workshop, we learnt some things about Fair Isle designs and the history of the technique.
We practiced techniques for knitting with two colours - one-handed and two-handed.
And we spent the afternoon designing our own Fair Isle wristwarmer patterns!
I had a ton of fun - and I think the participants had a good time, too.
The participants are posting their progress on Ravelry already, and I love seeing the results.
These are SweetG's mitts-in-progress. More photos on the KW Guild Flickr stream, and in Ravelry.
