Friday was another busy day, like Thursday. In the morning I had Lacing Up Brioche with Nancy Marchant, which was pretty fabulous. As with regular lace knitting, for each opening you make, which creates a new stitch, you have to remove a stitch to keep your stitch counts even. There are two ways of creating… Continue reading Virtual VK Live – And the Rest
I am attending another virtual Vogue Knitting event this week! I have two classes each Thursday and today, and one each Saturday and Sunday. So far the courses are great and I am learning a lot 🙂 First thing Thursday (and I do mean first thing – this VKL is on Eastern time, so 10… Continue reading Virtual VKL – Thursday Classes
This week was VK Live’s second virtual event, and this one was as good as the first! My first class at this event was History, Methods and Styles of Lace Knitting with Franklin Habit, which was really interesting! He compared Orenburg, Shetland and Estonian laces, considering techniques and conventions of all three styles. We got… Continue reading Virtual VK Live
Vogue Knitting, which normally does several live conventions and other smaller events every year, did their first virtual event this past week.

Vogue Knitting Live’s virtual event is going on this week! It sold out pretty quickly, and I missed out on several classes I wanted to take while I was fumbling with my calendar to see if there were any weekdays I would be able to take off. However, I did manage to snag two classes… Continue reading Virtual VK Live!

Saturday morning was Color Interaction in Fair Isle, which was taught by Mary Jane Mucklestone. She gave us each 6 skeins of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift (there was a materials fee for… Continue reading VK Live 3 – Last Post on This, I Swear
In addition to the classes and the pervasive knittiness in the air, the other great thing about this event was the shopping. The vendor room was BIG – a whole grand ballroom – and the list of vendors was 2 double-column pages long. So much yarn! Of course, not every shop was going to be… Continue reading VK Live 2 – The Shoppening
Just got back from Vogue Knitting Live in San Francisco! Mom and I went for three days (and a day of travel on each end of that) and had a great knitty time! There was so much going on, I’m going to do a couple of posts on this trip. Too much to write in… Continue reading VK Live! Part 1
