Calling all knitters -- it's time to challenge yourself!
Brighton Wool Gatherings is offering a fabulous class on September 14 from 7 -9:30 p.m., taught by Knitter Extraordinaire Stacey. You'll learn the reversible, double faced knitting technique, which will enable you to make things like this:
The first time I saw this scarf, I was in awe. No way, I thought, would I ever be able to make that. But Stacey stuck with me and I have learned the technique. Just don't talk to me while I'm working on it. In my book, talking and double faced knitting don't mix.
Stacey will teach you the basics of double faced knitting and chart reading. Bring two skeins of contrasting yarn of the same weight and needles appropriate for the yarn you've chosen.
You'll go home with the beginnings of a knit bookmark and the knowledge, and confidence, to make all sorts of reversible projects.
Cost of the class is $25. You can register by e-mailing us at BrightonWool@aol.com or calling the farm (440-829-3644).
I love this technique. The class is perfect for any intermediate knitter (or above) who knows how to knit and purl. Don't be afraid! After all, I was able to learn how to do it. And if I can learn, you can certainly learn!
Hope to see you on the 14th!
