Two Socks on Two Circs

Knitting two socks on two circular needles at the same time is a bit of knitterly magic that, like so many other things in knitting, seems a lot more complicated than it is. The first time you knit two socks at the same time you're likely to be confused some of the time, but trust that everything will work out and soon you may be wondering why you ever knit socks one at a time.

When: Saturday, 28th AND April 4th
Time: 10am-12pm
Cost: $60

Sivia Harding is coming to Flagstaff!

We're offering a fabulous two-day retreat, right here at your favorite fiber source. Come meet Sivia, spend quality time with fellow knitters, and learn all kinds of wonderful new things!

March 7th and 8th at Purl in the Pines — $300 for two days — click here to register online!

Sivia is an extraordinary knitwear designer and teacher from Portland, Oregon. She says:

"Fiber arts has been a life-long passion. When I was only 14 years old, I took fiber classes at my local Art Museum. Imagine my surprise when some of my pieces were displayed in the museum store! I was smitten. Though I was never without fiber work in one form or another, I didn’t find my way to knitting until 2000. By then, I had been a graphic designer for several years and earned a degree in painting and printmaking. It wasn’t a huge stretch to begin designing with my new-found skill of knitting.

"I am so honored to be widely published. My work has appeared in many books and collections including Jared Flood’s Wool People series and in online magazines such as Twist Collective and Knitty. My patterns are known for being innovative in their use of embellishment (especially beads), shape, and structure. I think they are fun and easy to follow as well."

Sivia will be teaching two of her favorite classes:

Harmonia’s Rings: Moebius and More

The Harmonia’s Rings family (cowl, tunic and sweater) use Cat Bordhi’s Moebius cast on to achieve the mysterious spiral neck shape. They feature a stitch pattern that creates concentric rings reminiscent of ancient architecture. The cowl sits cape-like over the shoulders and flatters a wide range of body types. This class introduces many techniques: the Moebius cast on, shaping and texture within the Moebius structure, and the charming beaded picot bind off, among others. We also discuss customizing the cowl shape to fit any body type. This class is guaranteed to take you through the looking glass!

Beaded Buttoned Bracelets

While working a beautiful beaded bracelet that is a tutorial of beading techniques, we learn about a million things about beads and how they interact with different stitch patterns. You emerge with inspiration and tons of ideas. The handout includes three additional bracelet patterns for you to enjoy making at home.

Adventurous beginner level. Skills required: knitting, purling, casting on, binding off, simple increases and decreases, yarn overs; I-cord experience a plus but not essential.

When: March 7th & 8th, 2020
Cost: $300.00
