We are pleased to announce that Angela Tong will be the featured instructor for the Spinnery’s 2020 Spring Knitters’ Weekend Retreat. Our workshop will be held in Brattleboro, Vermont from Friday, April 3rd to Sunday, April 5th, 2020.
Angela Tong is a knitwear designer and instructor. In her former career, she was a jewelry designer with a jewelry design degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. After she had her first daughter, she started designing knitting patterns and has never stopped.
Master Angela’s Tips and Tricks for her Monsoon Shawl (modelled by the designer above). This design is one of Angela’s most popular shawls from Interweave Knits. It is knitted on large needles in a luxurious worsted weight yarn. The half-circle shawl works up quickly and plays color runs against a variety of lace and texture patterns.
In the class, we will work through all sections of shawl; the garter stitch tab, garter ridge eyelet section, lace section and the knitted-on edging. By the end of the class, students will have all the necessary skills to complete a Monsoon shawl at home.
Skills needed: Students should know how to knit, purl, yarn over and cast on.
Your registration fee of $395 per person includes three meals (Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and dinner) and nine hours of instruction. This Spring, we are delighted to be able to host the event at the Hampton Inn, in nearby Brattleboro. They are offering us a special rate of $99 / $109 a night for us.
