A date for the diary

Saturday 15th February is going to be rather exciting at This Is Knit. We’re very happy to announce that Carol Feller will be teaching two workshops with us that day!

In the morning, she’s offering her Sweater Surgery class. Imagine if you were able to fix the parts of a project that didn’t come out exactly as you wanted (and we’ve all got those lurking in plastic bags at the back of the wardrobe) – well, this workshop will give you the skills to change “meh!” into “wow!” Projects can be rescued by changing the pattern as you work, or altering after the fact, and Carol’s workshop covers both. You can read more and make a booking by clicking on the image above – your projects will chorus their thanks.

In the afternoon, we’ll have a repeat of one of the most popular workshops ever: Carol’s Short Rows Demystified. Using one of the most versatile child’s patterns we know, the very dotey Taupini, you’ll experiment with several different short row methods for shaping your fabric. Short rowing is such a versatile skill, and last year’s workshop was an enormous success, reflected in the long list of gorgeous projects that followed. Clicking on the image above will take you to the booking page, and you can read more there too.

And we’re very very proud to be able to offer exclusive Carol Feller patterns as part of the Irish Yarn Club 2014, to complement the stunning hand-dyed yarn from talented Irish dyers. The perfect gift for a knitterly friend or for yourself, with sign-ups open for just another two weeks!

We’re looking forward to Christmas and New Year, but February’s going to be splendid too!
