If you have ever wanted to attempt intarsia, a technique for knitting a multicolored design, but were afraid to try, now’s your chance to learn it with an expert teacher, Julia Farwell-Clay. Join Julia for her morning class as she covers the basics of intarsia, as well as yarn management strategies and how to keep the weaving in of ends to a minimum. And while you’re at it, stay for Julia’s afternoon class where Julia will teach you the secrets of the modular Prada Shell (aka the Mermaid Stitch) using her pattern for the Prada Shell Cowl (pictured above). Register for one or both workshops. But remember, class size is limited, so register early!

Further details about the workshops, along with a registration form, are available here.
