Last night I was invited to speak to members of The Nova Scotia Knitting and Cocoa Society (Knitco for short) who meet once a month in Halifax. I was lucky to join the group for an evening of show & tell. I also talked about how I got started at knitting, my education at NSCAD and the Glasgow School of Art and what I'm designing today. It was great to connect with other enthusiastic knitters as well as reconnect with some familiar faces who I see often at the yarn store where I work. Thanks for having me Knitco and for the sweet thank-you card! How did you know I am a cat person?
In other news, I'm only offering two knitting courses at The Nova Scotia Center of Craft and Design this spring session. Learn to Knit and Knit Cables are both scheduled for May. In the cable class we will be knitting my pattern, Baby's First Cabled Toque, a perfect opportunity to learn about circular needles and how to cable.
I'm also changing up my blog a wee bit. Instead of blogging through Tumblr, I'll be blogging here. I'll still keep my Tumblr account and use it to share photos. However, for behind the scenes, rants, and rambles you can find them here at fionaalice.com or even subscribe and receive updates by e-mail!
