We are very excited at Yarn
Durango as we will be hosting
two workshops by Nancy Bush
this fall! Nancy is one of the
best knitting teachers on the
circuit today.  She has designed
and published numerous books and 
has been teaching knitting for years.   
    She travels to Estonia each year to spend time with the knitters that have inspired her.  I have personally taken workshops from her and she is by far the best knitting teacher I have ever taken lessons from.  She is an amazing and talented lady.

Workshop Information
Estonian Lace Sampler

Day 1: October 15, 2011
Estonian Lace Sampler, 6 Hour Class
In Estonian lace knitting tradition, patterns were recorded by knitting them into a long sampler or by a collection of small sample pieces. In this class we will study this tradition and make our own sampler of Estonian lace patterns.  Knitting lace is not as hard as you'd think.  By doing this small lace sampler and learning what you need to know from Nancy, you will never be afraid of lace patterns again.  It's all technique!

Workshop limited to 20 people.

Learn about Estonian knitting traditions through their mittens. Students will make a mitten, learning some interesting Estonian techniques: a special cast on, unique cuff treatment and knitted braids. Students should be able to use double point needles and have some experience with 2-color knitting, also know as Fair Isle or Stranded Knitting.  It will be so fun to learn how to knit these beautiful mittens!
