Wellness, Sip, and Wool #6

For this event, I’m going to take some attendee advice and plan it around a theme! While September sounds far away, it’s really not at all. September means Sweater weather is just around the corner! Who doesn’t love the cozy feeling of a warm sweater? So, for September I’ve decided to do a large portion of the event concentrating on getting our sweater skills in order before the snow flies!

This event will have skills for the very beginner and beyond. We will be joined by some amazing Rockstar teachers. First, Cecelia Campochiaro will teach us about Sequence knitting. Then we’ll be joined by Mary Scott Huff. Join us for “Stranded With Mary”, an immersive 5-session course where you’ll create a stranded colorwork baby sweater from start to finish. In collaboration with Jorstad Creek, Mary has created the Snowy Owls cardigan just for us! It’s an adorable gender-neutral design for 12-month-olds that is sure to become a family heirloom, in butter-soft Merino. Explore the clever and elegant construction of the classic Scandinavian drop-shoulder cardigan with Mary to hold your hand each step of the way. If you’ve always wanted to knit a steeked sweater with all of the traditional details, this is the perfect place to start. Together we’ll explore key lessons on strand orientation, float tension, steeks, knitted hems, finishing techniques, and much more. In addition to the five sessions with Mary, students will receive the Snowy Owls yarn kit, pattern and exclusive class workbook. There’s even a dedicated Ravelry group where students can stay in touch with Mary and each other between sessions. This is concierge knitting at its finest, and we know you won’t want to miss it. Please note that you will receive the entire kit as part of the swag for this event. If you choose the class-only option I will have a materials list for you.

We will also be joined by Jorstad Creek who is creating our sweater kits for a lovely trunk show. Kerry will be showing us all the pretty things! I love her yarn. I first met Kerry when I organized the Bazaar Girls Yarn store’s first retreat. I’ve got several knitted items from her yarn and a few skeins still in my stash!

Then, it wouldn’t be a WSW without Allie Geer I love how she helps us keep our bodies loose as we head into our busiest time of year for knitting.

Carol Green will be back with us after a short summer hiatus and will get us all ready to head into fall. She will teach us some of her Cozy Fall favorites that will allow us more time for knitting as we head toward the winter flavors!

As a reminder: For this event you will receive your entire sweater kit for Mary’s class. We will be using Jorstad Creek’s amazing Shuksan merino wool.

You will notice that this themed event will be centered mostly around the theme of sweaters. I would also like to note that while it may be a sweater-themed event there is always something to learn that will enhance our knitting skills for all types of projects. I hope that you’re ready to join us for a deep dive and learn new sweater skills. Mary is an exceptional teacher, not to mention that she’s super fun (and funny)! (She is also a professional comedienne- I love that!)

I look forward to seeing you in the virtual classroom this Fall!
