Since winding down from Unravel and Edinburgh, excitement has started to build for the summer, along with new plans for this coming year. I'll be traveling home to Nova Scotia in July to visit for the first time since moving to London. I plan to recharge my batteries and anticipate what the autumn holds. New patterns and accessories are at the top of my agenda right now, which I will introduce at the upcoming yarn festivals in the UK. In October I get to return home again for KnitEast, a Maritime yarn festival, in New Brunswick. I had a blast attending two years ago in 2013. I learned a lot from the workshops last time and got to meet so many generous knitters. However, this time I'm incredibly lucky to be teaching at this year's event.
KnitEast is talking place this October 23, 24 & 25. It will be held at the gorgeous Algonquin Resort again and I'm looking forward to seeing the recent renovations. You can read about my last trip to KnitEast on my old blog here. I didn't get to experience fall last year so it will be a treat to see the colours changing here.
I'll be teaching a number of courses throughout the weekend. On Saturday there will be workshops on reversible cables and toe-up socks.
Sunday will have two different workshops on my fingerless mitts series, the Greenforest Gang. The morning class with cover stranded knitting and how to follow the patterns. After lunch, I'll be spending some time talking about my design process and then let participants play around at making a custom mitt.
I know fall is still a few months away, but in the meantime, check out their site for a full list of workshops and registration. I'll see you there!
