The Knitting was Beautiful

Here's a glimpse of the beauties that appeared at session II of the 2011 Knitaway® in the Studio. Another amazing group of knitters and some very special days to remember.  I'm still flying from the great energy and inspiration we've all shared over the last few weeks. 
Dates for the 2012 Knitaways are dates to be posted soon, with both spring and fall sessions in the plans.

Hope to see you here in the Studio in the near future.

Where did the time go?

    We had the our last meeting of Session I of the October Knitaway in the Studio yesterday.  The days simply flew by, filled with a yarn shop tour on Friday,  daily show and tell by the talented knitters, and our Nazo vest workshop. Demos and ideas flew around the room like the little birds at the garden feeder. Four days of knitting inspiration, fabulous companions, and chocolate....did I mention chocolate?
      Now the Session I knitters are wending their way homeward (I miss them already) and Session II will be starting this Wednesday (ok!).  

 I believe that knitting together creates a time warp, a lovely, warm, enticing, time warp... and so many warm memories.

Notes from the Knitaway. Day Two

Al's Ribbon
Corridale  Beauty
Award winning knitters have appeared in this Knitaway session. Just wanted to share a couple of detail shots of the gorgeous work they are sharing in show and tell. 

  And today another morning of knitting and then our yarn shop tour.  It's looking to be a fabulous day at the Knitaway.

It in the details...

For me as a knitter and a designer, details are what make the garment.  This is one of the things we'll be playing with for the next several days in the Nazo workshop that starts tomorrow here at Session I of the Knitaway in the Studio. Lots of knitting, lots of details ...oh and fun, food and yarn frolic.

Maybe it's just the full moon, but I'm feeling pretty jazzed.  See all you Knitaway knitters tomorrow!

Knitaway on the horizon....


Less than two weeks until Session I of the Knitaway® in the Studio.

The knitting bowl is ready to assist in demonstrations,

and the yarns and fibers are collecting themselves.
   Just a few more days.... I'm trying hard to be patient and enjoy the anticipation.  Thank goodness I have knitting and spinning to keep me busy until then.
