The Vancouver Island Fibre Fest is this weekend in Campbell River. I will be demonstrating Lace Painting on Saturday and I will be teaching Twinned Knitting on Sunday – I hope to see you there. The painting demonstration starts at 4 and lasts until the piece is painted – probably about an hour.
Dewmoth Shawl is just off the needles and ready to paint. I have knit it with Fleece Artist Goldielocks, a lovely mohair/silk blend. This is a worsted weight yarn so it was a quick knit! Being mohair it feels as light as air. When done there will be a double edging the second edge will be much smaller and beaded just to dangle over the moth edging.
We will knitting the In-Twinned Fingerless Mittens pattern in the class on Sunday. This is a great small project to learn some of the more interesting effects that can be created with Twinned Knitting.
I am just about finished the longer version of the In-Twinned Mittens. I am knitting with the Zealana Rimu Fingering – love this yarn. It is a special request from one of the students in the Twinned Knitting class.
Have a great weekend! Maybe I will see some of you there.
