Fairisle with Finullgarn
Fairisle with Finull. Let's make a classic colorwork vest with fantastic Finullgarn, our Norwegian wool that has a 90 color "box of crayons" to play with. The vest pattern is Skeindeer's The Academic
This class is designed for an intermediate knitter. Skills to be either developed or enhanced are learning & understanding the nuances of how colors play together, fine gauge stranded colorwork knitting, and the steeking process for arm and neck openings.
Liz will be your fearless leader, and formal classroom instruction is as follows: a class to choose colors and detailed gaugework directions, a class for stranded colorwork techniques and specifics related to the pattern, and a class for steeking. We're planning a few informal get togethers for progress show & tell also. The steeking class date(s) will be determined by the group during your second class - we anticipate steeking in early June and/or late August.
Supplies: The Academic pattern, needles, and Finullgarn. Yarn will actually be chosen during the first class meeting. Supplies for class receive a 10% discount.
Class times: Saturday Feb. 3rd; 1 - 3pm AND Saturday Feb 17th; 1 - 3pm
Steeking class meetings will be determined by the group. Optional informal get-togethers will be planned too.
