Sounds like it was a busy weekend for Virginia Knitters. Olivia-Lee and Cat, while you were getting good, useful information from Pat, I was taking classes from Margaret Radcliffe, aka Maggie's Rags. She presented three workshops for KANV (that's Knitting Artisans of Northern Virginia) in McLean on Saturday and Sunday. The 6 hour class on Sat. was Fantastic No Gauge Scarves and Shawls. On Sunday AM class was I-Cord Intensive, and PM was Lazy Knitter's Guide to Pattern Stitches. What a fantastic group of workshops. So much good information. I am currently suffering from information overload! I love taking classes like this because there is always something new to learn. Knitting is such an evolving craft. There is always another skill to master, other ways of acheiving unique knitted items.
Margaret Radcliffe has another book coming out this Fall on color knitting. Another example of Virginia knitters, as she lives in Blacksburg.
