I was lucky enough to be able to attend Stitches West this year! I took classes every day and had a fantastic time. The first class I took was the Fair Isle Hat. I have tried colorwork in the past with not such great results. My tension was always off and the knitting looked puckery and the images were not clear. I definitely needed help. Our teacher was amazing!
I learned how to knit with a color in each hand and how to get my tension right. Everyone in class made such pretty hats and they were all different.
One of the best parts of class … I met up with a friend I hadn’t seen since our kids were in pre-school together!! It was such a fantastic surprise to see and chat with her. She’s still local so it will be fun to get together sometime soon.
