Short Row Crescent Class

On Tuesday night (tomorrow!!!) I will be signing copies of my book Warm Days, Cool Knits with a trunk show of all the projects. If you are in the Lauderhill, Florida area and would like to buy a book and get it signed Sheep Thrills still has copies of the book available - call and reserve yours! WDCK cover

And on Wednesday I will be teaching a class on my Evanthe shawl. This is a new crescent shaped short row shawl that will be exclusively available at Sheep Thrills for the rest of the year. There are still a few spots available in this class which will take place on Wednesday morning, so hurry up and grab yours!

During this class we will be working up a mini version of the shawl to practice all of the skills that are needed to complete the shawl. Those skills include:

  1. My unvented fancy cast-on
  2. The flower knot stitch
  3. Nearly invisible yarnover short rows
  4. Crochet bind off

And how to block your shawl to bring out the lace and make it look like less of a fuzzy lump and more like  the knitted masterpiece it is!

Evanthe is knit up in one skein of The Fiber Seed Sprout - a yummy fingering weight. The sample is in the Sanquis colorway, a beautiful red/pink. Students need to bring their yarn, size 6 (4.0) needles, and a size E (3.5 mm) crochet hook. I'll bring the patterns, the know-how, and the blocking supplies.
