A New Video, A New Class

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Another video uploaded (uploading, actually). I’ve completed the tutorials on swatches and stitch gauge. Part 1 is on circular swatches and Part 2 is on flat swatches and blocking. There are certainly videos on these subjects already on the web, and I debated skipping them and just linking to the other sites, but I wanted my series of tutorials to be a “one-stop shopping” experience. Elsewhere in the news this evening, I just enrolled for a class at the Madrona Fiber Arts Festival in Tacoma (Washington) in mid-February. This promises to be an amazing festival, if reports of past years are to be believed. There is an incredible lineup of instructors: Sally Melville, Elsebeth Lavold, Vivian Hoxbro (sorry Vivian, I don’t have that special symbol for the “o” in your name), Lucy Neatby, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, etc. Some of the classes are so popular the enrollees are chosen by lottery–I missed a slot in Sally Melville’s class, but was able to snag a spot in Vivian Hoxbro’s Lazy Knitters’ Dominos. I don’t know if I’m a lazy knitter, but I’m all for anything easy that yields good results.
