On Tuesday night (tomorrow!!!) I will be signing copies of my book Warm Days, Cool Knits with a trunk show of all the projects. If you are in the Lauderhill, Florida area and would like to buy a book and get it signed Sheep Thrills still has copies of the book available – call and reserve yours!
And on Wednesday I will be teaching a class on my Evanthe shawl. This is a new crescent shaped short row shawl that will be exclusively available at Sheep Thrills for the rest of the year. There are still a few spots available in this class which will take place on Wednesday morning, so hurry up and grab yours!
During this class we will be working up a mini version of the shawl to practice all of the skills that are needed to complete the shawl. Those skills include:
- My unvented fancy cast-on
- The flower knot stitch
- Nearly invisible yarnover short rows
- Crochet bind off
And how to block your shawl to bring out the lace and make it look like less of a fuzzy lump and more like the knitted masterpiece it is!
Evanthe is knit up in one skein of The Fiber Seed Sprout – a yummy fingering weight. The sample is in the Sanquis colorway, a beautiful red/pink. Students need to bring their yarn, size 6 (4.0) needles, and a size E (3.5 mm) crochet hook. I’ll bring the patterns, the know-how, and the blocking supplies.
