If you are an advanced beginner, intermediate or more experienced knitter, comfortable with knitting and purling, looking to learn or brush up on Fair Isle skills, this workshop is for you. Begin by becoming fluent in both the English and Continental styles of knitting (holding the yarn in either your right or left hand). Practice knitting in the round with two colors (one in each hand) while making a colorful little bag, pouch, or bowl. Learn to read charts like a pro. Trap those pesky floats. Discover the beauty of corrugated ribbing. Hold your breath while you cut open a steek.
