Come to Vermont May 19-22, 2022 to learn about the wonderful Norwegian Fana Cardigan. We’ll make a cute little sampler that teaches you all the tricks for a professional-looking garment. We’ll start with casting on and working the ribbing in an unusual way to create a smooth transition for the buttonbands. You’ll learn how to […]

The date has changed once again for the Roositud retreat in 2021. I felt that holding the retreat in May of next year is still too soon, considering the coronavirus, and I have moved this event to August 12-15. I am sorry to keep changing the dates, but the safety of all involved is my […]
