On the Road Again: Waterloo Classes and then a Holiday

This weekend I'm loading up my car with Nutella muffins and heading to see my friends at Shall We Knit in Waterloo.

I've got four classes on the slate:
Continental Knitting: Knit faster! Master 2-handed colorwork! Rest your strained hands!
Intro to Lace Knitting: Yarnovers, lifelines and blocking - oh my! Suitable for adventurous newer knitters, or knitters looking to expand their repertoire, I'll introduce you to the joy and wonder of lace knitting. We'll learn how to read and work lace patterns (including charts), and I'll share tips and tricks with you for successfully working lace projects, and producing shawls and scarves you're proud to wear.
Top Down Socks 101: A very good place to start if you've never made socks before. Suitable for knitters who are confident with knit and purl - experience knitting in the round preferred but not mandatory. Also good if you live in the land of the toe-up, and want to broaden your horizons. Adventurous sock knitters like to go both ways, you know!
Fixing Mistakes: Because Knit Happens. Suitable for knitters of all levels - come and learn how to save your work. You'd be amazed about what we can fix without undoing - and if you do have to undo, I'll show you ways to make it painless and safe.

And as a bonus, the very wonderful Kim McBrien of indigodragonfly is going to be there at the same time - she is teaching a few classes, and running a yarn tasting! She'll also have a special pop-up shop with lots of delicious yarns.

And then after that, we're jumping on a plane to the UK for a bit of a holiday, and a wedding. Planned highlights include: the Kaffe Fasset exhibit at the Fashion and Textile Museum, the David Bowie Exhibit at the V&A, and an Argi Bhaji sandwich or three.

Delicious. Seriously.
