Sandi Rosner Workshop

January 15, 2013

Coming up this weekend, on Saturday January 19th, let Sandi Rosner take the mystery out of Fair Isle Knitting, in a workshop called “Fearless Fair Isle”!

Stranded Fair Isle style colorwork is a classic technique that belongs in every knitters repertoire!  Experiment with one handed and two handed methods of handling the yarn to see which is more comfortable for you.  Learn simple tricks for keeping your tension even.  See why certain color combinations sing while others fall flat.  You’ll leave with the beginning of a hat, or a finished headband.
