I am looking forward to September 14-15, when I will hold a slide show and lecture on the British Gansey Friday night, and teach my workshop “Gansey Techniques” on Saturday at Sheep and Shawl in Deerfield, Massachusetts. Call 413-397-3680 to register.
The folks at Interweave Press filmed this video about my new book, Knitting Ganseys, Revised and Expanded, at YarnFest this year. It shows some of the pages inside, and some of the history and garments that are featured as well. I hope you enjoy it! You can pre-order the book here. It will be released at the end of July 2018.
While in Albuquerque in October, I met Christina Campbell, the woman behind World Wide Knit-In For Peace Day, which is December 21 this year. Project Peace is a knit-along from December 1-21 and Christina will supplement this with daily blog posts about peace.
I took a red eye home from Oregon after teaching for the Black Sheep Gathering in June, and that gave me a little more than 24 hours to prepare for my trip to Norway. I was exhausted! But all the same, I’m happy to report that the trip itself was great and I took a lot of pictures!
