Knitters in the Green MountainsGreen Mountain Spinnery Putney, VT
We are excited to announce that Thea Coleman and Ellen Mason will be the featured instructor for the Spinnery’s 25th Annual Knitters in the Green Mountains weekend workshop.
Thea will impress us with her design process where she will take us from yarn thoughts to motifs to actually plotting ideas for a basic design and they begin to design their own cowls. The other is “playing with cables” where we look at things we can do with cables- pair them together, play them off of one another, change the size, add/change texture, add/change lace, make a panel, read and create a chart, etc. Ellen will be sharing her creative ways for sculpting a mitten thumb with her Fried Chicken Mitten, working two at a time using magic loop and possibly a small sewing project??
