Soul Craft Festival

I still can't believe I'll be heading to Australia for the Soul Craft Festival this June to teach my favorite knitting class (brioche!) and talk all about the huge impact knitting and crafting has had on my life - from supporting my family, to working my way through anxiety and life's greater challenges. I do hope I'll get to see and connect with you there!

Spun // Advanced Brioche Workshop

In this class we will begin playing around with what makes brioche so special. When working brioche in two colors, a whole new world of color play is opened up to you! Discover how to blend colors and add depth thru contrast. We will also discuss using different fibers and weights together to really mix things up. We will learn how to increase and decrease in brioche, and how it goes far beyond just shaping your fabric, to create the appearance of intricate cables and lace. 

I'll be bringing lots of beautiful brioche pieces to look at and try on!

Please note that this class is for knitters already comfortable with brioche knit and brioche purl stitches.

Spun // Winter Honey Workshop

This workshop will focus on the skills needed to make the beautifully textured Winter Honey Shawl. This triangle shaped shawl is a delight to knit, utilizing the bouncy honeycomb cable in two different sizes, and even better to wear! In class we will learn how to perform the garter tab cast on, discuss shawl shaping, practice working a cable with and without a cable needle, and try out Andrea's favorite shawl bind off!

This class is best suited for intermediate knitters. Students who are comfortable with casting on and off, knitting, purling and increasing should do just fine!
