Description

The brilliant Bristol Ivy is coming to Cambridge! She will be lecturing at the Common Cod Fiber Guild and teaching two classes.

Knitting with Refinement - From 10:00 AM-1:00 PM

Ever wanted to get nerdy with knitting? In this class, we’ll talk about the little refinements you can make—like neatening your selvedge stitches or smoothing out your decreases—to take your knitting to the next level.

Materials and homework: Smooth, non-haloed, light-colored worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles. Students should cast on 30 stitches and work about an inch in stockinette prior to class.

Shawl Shapes - From 2:00-5:00 PM

Shawls are one of the most popular projects in the knitting world right now. They’re the perfect way to explore new techniques or use just a few skeins of precious yarn for something lovely. In this class, we’ll look at a how to create a few different shawl shapes, and then discuss adding stitch patterns or playing with unconventional shap- ing. Experience needed: knitting, purling, increasing.

Materials and homework: Though we will mostly be swatching, you can bring between 500-900 yards of fingering weight yarn to start your chosen shawl and a size 5 or 6 32” or longer circular needle. For swatching, please bring around 200 yards of dk or worsted weight yarn, appropriate needles, and stitch markers.
