Spring 2017 is going to huge! Eleven events in March – May (yes you did that math correctly, that’s 11 events in 12 weeks)!! If you’ve never taken a class with me, I hope this is the year. I’m crisscrossing the country, so I’m bound to be someplace near you! Leave me a comment if I’ll be seeing you.
Another year of teaching, traveling, knitting and laughing has come to an end. I am so grateful that my job is to travel all over the country meeting and teaching (and being taught by) the most amazing knitters around.
This year saw travel to 22 cities, teaching hundreds of students live, thousands online, and 28 private students (live and streaming on the web). There were ups and downs, bad travel connections, lost luggage , and through it all, you were there.
Year in Review – Knitting Events 2016
2017 is nearly fully booked! The first three months alone have me traveling to 10 venues in 3 months (yikes) and don’t event get me started on April. If you’ve never taken a class with me, I hope this is the year. I’m crisscrossing the country, so I’m bound to be someplace near you! Leave me a comment if I’ll be seeing you.
Early 2017 Knitting Events
Vogue Knitting Live is around the corner, and it’s class raffle time!
Recently you might have noticed my growing fondness for the amazing power of dropped stitches. I wrote about my two drop stitch patterns that I created after working on my new class.
At Vogue Knitting Live Minneapolis I’m premiering that BRAND NEW class, “Let it Go: Drop Stitch Patterns”. Here’s YOUR chance to win a class!
The late summer and fall are shaping up to be VERY full. I’m sure to be someplace near by you!

Build a Better Fabric: Combination Knitting
Description of Class
Have you tried learning continental, but the purl messes you up? Do you feel like you often have uneven tension? Or perhaps you are already a combination knitter and you’ve ever been told you knit “wrong”, or been asked “what are you doing”, take heart . . . there are no wrong ways to knit as long as we control our stitches. A combination knitter works through the back loop to knit, and the front loop to purl. It can be a fast and easy way to knit, but simple adjustments must be made to follow Western patterns, like how to knit in the round, and understand left and right slanting increases and decreases, and how to work twisted pattern stitches. If you are a Western knitter, then learn the amazing advantages to this knitting methods and how and when you would combine it with your own. If you are a Combination Knitter, learn how to make stitches better and easier for your style.
Must know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, know simple increase and decreases. Recognize the knit and purl stitch and be able to work them in a pattern without supervision.

How could it be nearly April. This year is going faster than ever. I’m lining up all sorts of fun things for the rest of 2016 and have even lined up some fab events for 2017. I promised a summer update, so here’s a round up of the Summer teaching events (HINT: read all the way down to the bottom of the page, I have a VERY exciting surprise!!!)
Summer 2016 Knitting Events
I can’t believe 2014 is has come to a close. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my amazing students. That includes all of my online students from Craftsy, Annie’s and Interweave (but I don’t have pictures of you guys).
Year in Review 2014 (can’t believe it’s done!)
You all have taught me so much and inspired me to work even harder to keep providing you with fun classes. I had a new Annie’s class launch in November, and I’ll have three new DVDs coming out in 2015 with Interweave and I’m working on several new live classes to launch this spring.
Here’s a look back on all your shiny faces. I wasn’t always great at taking photos (somehow have virtually no Stitches South or West photos).
If you see yourself in a photo, leave a comment and say hi!
See you somewhere in class in 2015 (maybe on a Cruise) 🙂
