Knit Traditional at the Folk School!

There is still room in my Traditional Island Knitting Sampler at the John C Campbell Folk School
 March 3 - 9, 2013.  This is a great class, loaded with information, techniques and tips and the Folk School is a wonderful place to spend a week, especially in early spring.

We will spend a day exploring each of these traditions:

Aran Island cables and textured stitches 
Fair Isle colorwork

 Shetland lace

 and then each student will explore further whatever techniques they prefer.

We will make a small cabled bag, a tiny fair isle sweater and a bookmark or two of lace.

Adventurous beginners are more than welcome, along with more experienced knitters!

So treat yourself to a week at the Folk School: great food, congenial company, a beautiful mountain campus and a week of cozy knitting and chatting. What could be better? For details, click the class title or go to
