What an amazing time we had Monday night, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Sally is not only an amazing knitter, but a gifted teacher, and a thoroughly approachable human being – very personable and funny. We were all inspired and empowered by the classes.
Here are ten fun things I learned, in no particular order:
- Anyone can be creative – you just have to be open to the opportunity
- You can wash woolens in the machine – just soak in SOAK or other low-sudsing wool wash for 40 minutes and spin the water out! –
- Knitted skirts can be very flattering
- The relationship between rows and stitches in stockinette is independent of gauge.
- In 2-color
Fair Isleknitting, I like carrying the MC in my right hand and the CC around my neck.
- Garments typically need more ease than we think – especially drop shouldered sweaters and all coats.
- Reverse stockinette makes the best edges
- There is a not that will never come out, and you can use it on color knitting. You’ll find it in the Color book.
- Duplicate stitch is best worked bottom to top and side to side.
- The next book in Sally’s series is “Texture”, and I cannot wait!!!
I’ll post more pictures soon.
p.s. Sally signed all the copies of her books that I had left in stock, and we still have a few left, so get ’em while you can.
