If you want to knit faster, if you want to knit better, and if you want to escape the cold in January and stroll by a river . . . join me in San Antonio River Walk for
A few years ago I was lucky enough to teach at Camp Stitches, and I loved working with the same group of knitters for three days. It is a great, relaxed way to really explore a single topic in a beautiful setting.
Join me in San Antonio on Jan 5 – 9th. Book soon, the last time I taught at camp we sold out!
Here’s a few pics to inspire you about where we’ll be.
But now let’s talk WHAT we’ll be doing – knitting! That’s right, we are going to spend three days learning all the different ways you can knit better, stronger, faster and happier.
Knit Faster Camp Stitches!!
From the class description:
Do you want to improve your knitting speed, efficiency, comfort? To improve the look and consistency of your fabric? Learn the secret to happy knitting… that you need more than one knitter’s tool in your knitter’s toolbox.
In this fabulous “try-them-all class”, we will have time to explore everything about our knitting from proper stitch formation, to yarn tensioning, to stitch sizing. We’ll learn the difference between a knitting style and a knitting method, and along the way we will explore a variety of knitting styles (English, Continental, and Portuguese) as well as understand different knitting methods (Eastern, Western, and Combination). Finally, we will learn knitting and purling back backwards—an extremely useful trick that can be done in any knitting method or style.
We will explore in-depth the ways you would combine styles and methods to achieve certain effects in your fabric or while working certain techniques. And, of course, Patty will give individual tips and coaching on how to improve your knitting style and method!
We may also play around with different cast-on and bind-off methods, along with some of Patty’s favorite tricks for doing certain increases and decreases better, faster, and more easily.
But, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so take a look at the amazing transformation knitters have made after only 3 hours (imagine your knitting after 3 days!!)
