Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018

Yes I'm teaching at The Edingburgh Yarn Festival in March 2018. I'm so excited as this is one of the most fabulous yarn festivals in the UK. It attracts huge number of visitors from around the world. I'll be teaching three classes and the class preview is now up. Bookings open on Saturday 14 October 2017 at 4pm UK time.

On Wednesday 14 March fro 10am to 1pm I'm teaching Circular Fair Isle Yokes.  You will learn how circular yokes are constructed and how to incorporate a fair isle pattern on your yoke, how to shape the yoke and adjust the shaping to work with your fair isle pattern.

Also on Wednesday from 2 to 5pm, I'll be teaching Continental Knitting with Norwegian Purl. The continental way of knitting is faster and more efficient than most English styles. You will learn how to carry your yarn in your left hand and knit continental style as well as the long tail cast on and Norwegian purl. For the Norwegian Purl the yarn is held at the back which makes combined knit and purl stitches such as ribs much quicker. 

This class will include my online Continental Knitting with Norwegian Purl class as a free bonus so that you can continue to get online support and refresh any new techniques online after the class. Read more about the class here.

And on Thursday 15th March from 2pm to 5pm I'll be teaching Beaded Lace Knitting. Beads add elegance and glamour to any lace knitting. In this class you will learn three different ways of adding beads to your lace knitting and how to choose which method is suitable for your project. You will also learn how to read lace charts and work common lace stitches. Read more about this class here.

After my workshops I'll be staying on in Edinburgh for a few days to enjoy the show and explore the city with my Mum who's coming over from Norway. The Market Place will take place from 15 to 17 March. This will be my first trip to Edinburgh so I'm so excited for this event!

So, who's coming to Edinburgh?
