Knitting the Landscape with Celeste Nossiter

A one-day intermediate class for students with stranding experience — Saturday, June 16th!

In this class we will use the beautiful mountain landscape for color inspiration to design a stranded hat. First we’ll go outside and look, sketch, take photos and make notes. A brief overview of color theory is next. After that students will choose their own yarns and practice combining colors to see what happens. A new technique of speed swatching motifs comes next. There will be lots of time to revise the swatches to see what combinations of colors produce the desired effect. Students will leave the class having started a hat with notes to knit a larger garment.

Celeste loves color and experimenting within the traditional stranded knitting technique, one version of which is Fair Isle but is practiced in many cultures. She has taught at Taos Wool Festival, Estes Park Wool Festival and yarn shops in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. A lifelong study of color and an MFA in Painting equip her with excellent color skills.

Materials list:
• 16” circular needles size 2 or 3
• Graph paper, pencil and eraser
• Digital camera or phone camera
• Stitch markers

During class you will purchase 5 skeins of fingering or sport weight weight wool in colors you choose.

Time: 10am - 5pm

Cost: $95.00
