achillea green2…is now open!  You can use these links:  Aran Lace & Twisted Stitches to sign up.

The class project for the Aran Lace class is my Achillea Cowl (shown on the left).  I’ll bring samples of it & other Aran Lace patterns I’ve designed (such as my Applejack Cowl and Lupine Mitts).  I’ll also check with the vendors to see if anyone will be selling copies of the Aran Lace 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.  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?  If yes, or if you’ve just been to the area, let me know your favorite things to do, places to eat, etc!  I’m bringing my mom along as a vacation for before/after the show.
