Classes in July!
This past Wednesday, Tamaralda and I did a presentation for the Downtown Knit Collective on knitted and crocheted skirts! We had such a fun time and I will be doing a post very soon about our adventures for that presentation.
In the meantime, here are the classes I'm teaching in July... they will all be taught at Passionknit in Toronto (please give them a call to register or for more information at (416) 322-0688:
The Entrelac Technique - Noro Silk Garden Lite Scarf!

Continental knitting (picking) along with English knitting (throwing) are the two predominant ways of knitting. The picking technique is gaining in popularity for those who are interested in augmenting their techniques repertoire. Knitting in this way is very efficient and facilitates colour-work. This class will go over the basics and get you practicing knitting the continental way! You must have a basic knowledge of knitting to take this class. (Peachy)
