….. that is a FLOOD of information!
I just spent an entire day taking knitting workshops with Jared Flood.
What a fabulous way to spend an otherwise dreary November day.
In the morning he taught a class on colorwork and convinced students to explore different methods of holding two colors so that we could maintain consistency in dominant and background colors and best of all no more tangled yarns.
We all worked on a speed swatch and had to take an oath that we would try the Crochet reinforced steek that he demonstrated.
I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon knitting along on EZ November Moccasin Sock while Jared worked us through the construction of a seamless sweater from the bottom up. In the past I have made a few sweaters using EZ’s percentages but this workshop was AMAZING! It was full of useful tips, short row shaping, and calculations. I had several AHA moments and have decided that I will rework the shaping on my EZ October Open Collared Pullover just a bit.
On to this months project! For the EZ November Moccasin Socks I chose Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash for my DH
Now I have to go do my homework for tomorrow’s Koolhaas workshop. Good thing I gain an extra hour tonight!
I selected some of his newly released yarn Shelter in a beautiful Red called Long Johns. Perhaps I should have waited to make the September EZ longies out of this appropriately named yarn. I will post my progress. No idea how much I will get done in this two hour class.
All of the workshops have been filled for quite sometime but Jared Flood will also be speaking at our regular guild meeting on Monday November 8th. FMI see the Rochester Knitting Guild website.
