Sydney this will be am - will check if clocks change - 9am? Knitting Garments with Mitres 2 hour session: Sat 9th CT 7-9pm/ Sydney Sun 10th oct
XRX is very familiar with my designs and published my book in 2009, I taught with them over 15 years at shows in the USA.
So, from my Sydney studio, I will step you through simple colour work, to establish the principals of working columns of colours, linking the yarns at colour joins. Simple Intarsia is worked mainly from a diagram or small sections of graphs.
I trained in the Uk in fashion textiles, working with both woven fabric and knit fabric, so I think like a dressmaker, creating my fabric as I knit, adjusting my knit fabric with larger needles for swing and drape, or smaller needles to support the garment and fit the shoulder.
I have sold ready-made handknits and made to measure handknits for over 30 years, running a team of up to 100 hand knitters, so I think about the knitability of a design too. I will share my design knowledge covering different knitting techniques from textured stitches to Mitre Knitting.
The class is Fri/Sat PM in the USA = AM the following day in Sydney Sat/Sun
