The techniques used for the patterns vary a bit, but they all share stranded knitting.
Look for a FREE workshop in May where stranded knitting will be demystified.
We hope our Fair Isle alumnae will come and share their projects with you at our
STRANDED KNITTING TECHNIQUES WORKSHOPS all summer.
We have a number of new fair isle patterns available through Ravelry.
Fair Isle Steeked Headband
Fair Isle Pine Tree Hat
Fair Isle Clover Mitts
I am taking the summer off from knitting to protect my hands, wrists and shoulders, (sadly aging does take a toll on a 4 hours a day knitter...) but instead I will be WEAVING. My focus is centered on my new-to-me 45" HERALD LOOM, which lives in my dining room. For the last 14 years, I have woven on a great 4 shaft portable 24" loom from ASHFORD, which can rest on a table, or becomes a floor loom while on it's stand
(pictured below), and folds up into a suitcase shape.
(I have decided to sell it so I can reinvest in a second, bigger Ashford jack loom).
$1875 brand new, I am asking $1200.
It is all set up in the shop with a weaving project on it, so come and try it out it you are interested.
(And...I am looking for weaving buddies. Can we start a group? We can meet here...)
April showers are coming...do you have your spring seeds ready for planting?
Lettuce and spinach and turnips just wanna have fun, plant some!
