 Come and join us at the Villa Maria Retreat Center for the weekend on Lake Pepin, located about one and a half hours south of the Twin Cities! Enjoy knitting, relaxing and sharing quality time with fellow knitters! INSTRUCTOR: Lucy Neatby is an internationally recognized teacher, designer and writer who has thrilled knitters around the world with her inimitable charm, knowledge and uniquely colorful designs. Her passion for nurturing and empowering knitters and putting them in control of their art is becoming legendary! CLASS: Explore Double Knitting with Lucy and design your own hat or headband. Topics include cast-ons, bind-offs, shapings, and color patterning. Using two yarns she will introduce positive/negative DK color patterning techniques. We will look at different ways to handle the yarns for maximum efficiency and how to incorporate shapings into double fabrics, topped off with tubular bind-off. These techniques are suited to ultra warm hand, headbands, mittens and even socks. Intermediate and advanced knitters are welcome.
