The class project for the Aran Lace class is my Achillea CowlÂ (shown on the left). Â I’ll bring samples of it & other Aran Lace patterns I’ve designed (such as my Applejack Cowl and Lupine Mitts). Â I’ll also check with the vendors to see if anyone will be selling copies of theÂ Aran LaceÂ stitch dictionary by Annie Maloney (in previous classes, everyone’s wanted a copy of this stitch dictionary!).
I’m currently designing a new pattern for the Twisted Stitch class. In previous classes I’ve used my Let’s do the Twist mitts, but I think working with worsted weight yarn will be much easier for folks than fingering or sport weight. Â I’m working up the cowl in gorgeous Serenity Worsted by Zen Yarn Garden in Frosted Teal.
Have you been to the Taos Wool Festival? Â If yes, or if you’ve just been to the area, let me know your favorite things to do, places to eat, etc! Â I’m bringing my mom along as a vacation for before/after the show.
