You don't knit this much for this long (coming up on 30 years) without learning a few things. Especially not if you've also run a yarn shop. I love sharing my expertise with passionate crafters.
My top workshop offerings are:
Yarn Fu – a guide to the secrets of yarn fibre and construction, to give you confidence in choosing yarns for your knitting or crochet projects. Includes strategies for handling handpainted and variegated yarns.
Start to Finish – choosing the right cast-on, cast-off and seaming techniques for your project. This can be run as a half-day or more in-depth full-day workshop.
Hammerstein's Top Tips (for Clever, Lazy Knitters) – save time and get the best results with these lesser-known tricks, from an easier left-leaning decrease to a neat, fast, flat-lying seam. Includes unusual cast-on, cast-off and short row techniques.
Best Foot Forward – knitting socks requires an arsenal of special techniques, whether you prefer toe-up, cuff-down, short-row or flap heels. I give you all the options you need to create perfect socks every time. Class includes a plug-and-play pattern template for your own design.
Crochet Start to Finish – smart tricks that will make for better, easier, neater crochet, whether you're a beginner or more experienced. Includes chain-free foundations, seaming and more.
