Two Upcoming Events

Very excited to announce two events I'm teaching at this spring.

(Ok, it's true, I may also just be excited about the concept of spring.)

These events are two major highlights of my knitting year: The Toronto Downtown Knit Collective Knitter's Frolic, held at the always lovely Japanese Cultural Centre in Toronto, April 26 & 27th.


Interweave's Knitting Lab being held in Manchester, New Hampshire May 13-18th.

Both of these events bring together my favourite things: yarn shopping and smart and enthusiastic knitting students. Seriously, the quality of the shopping, the classes and the students is always fantastic.

At the Frolic, I'm teaching
  • Pattern Writing
  • Kitchener Confidence
  • Working in the Round: DPNs, Magic Loop, 2 Circulars
  • And a full-day Introduction to Fair Isle workshop - Design Your Own Fair Isle Fingerless mitts. This workshop in particular is ideal for knitters who are new(ish) to working with multiple colours, and are looking for a fun way to build their skills and dip their toes into designing.

More Frolic workshop details here.

At Knitting Lab, I'm teaching
  • The Perfect Fit: How to read & understand garment sizing info, how to choose the right size to knit, and simpler alterations to improve the fit of any garment
  • Fixing Mistakes
  • Two Socks in One: The War & Peace Method
  • Pattern Writing
  • Custom Fit Socks
