love of knitting with others. Obsessively knitting for over seventeen years, Karyn especially loves
knitting sweaters and shawls, but also accessories with interesting techniques and construction.

Her students are consistently drawn to Karyn’s patience, kind demeanor, and clear method of instruction.

Norah will show you why she loves twisted stitches while she teaches you her favorite method for knitting right twists and left twists. Yes, there is a difference between twisted stitches and 1/1 cables! Students will explore the difference, then make super easy mini cables, followed by a deeper dive into just how much you can do with the diagonal lines made by twisted stitches. Combination knitters are more than welcome. Norah knows how to make twisted stitches easy for you too!
A fun, creative approach to learning how to make up new cables. Instead of starting with a chart, students will play with making their own free form cable pattern while knitting. Don't worry if you don't have much (or any) cable experience. This class is great for all levels.
Experience with Cables helpful.
