Today started like the last two days – up way too early for a Vogue Knitting Live class – this one was on Distitch, taught by the technique inventor Assia Brill. I don’t want to give too much away, but essentially you are knitting through two layers of stitches, which results in a somewhat thicker… Continue reading Busy Saturday!
It was Vogue Knitting Live this past weekend, and I participated again, though only took one class. What I did do this time that I haven’t done much of before is participate in the extra events that attendees can go to for free. North Light Fibers did a little video tour of Block Island RI,… Continue reading Vogue Knitting Live Weekend!
I took a couple classes at this month’s Vogue Knitting Live again this month, and it was nice to get back to it! I took a class on Japanese stitch patterns from Gayle Roehm, who has translated several of the Japanese stitch bibles currently available and also teaches quite a few classes on the subject.… Continue reading VK Live Again
Another month, another VK Live 🙂 I just took 3 classes this month, which used up the last of my credits from the Seattle event I was enrolled in for spring.

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
I suddenly remembered yesterday afternoon that my Virtual VK live classes this weekend have homework! So currently interrupting my regularly scheduled knitting to get all of that going 🙂 I did get a bunch done on my Arachne and a little more done on my socks since last reports, so I will have a little… Continue reading Knitting Homework

There have been hints that they might do a bunch more of these, which I am definitely hoping for 🙂 Also, this… Continue reading More Virtual Events
