Super excited – I managed to squeeze into two amazing Madrona workshops for next February.

Original Bohus patterns from the Bohusläns Museum

Wouldn’t you love to make something as beautiful as these sweaters? I can hardly believe I might knit something so intricate. This is a Swedish knitting technique for the Bohus Stickning class by Susanna Hannson. I’ll also be taking an Estonian mitten class with Nancy Bush, the North American expert on Estonian knitting. I was hoping for an Advanced Cabling class with Jared Flood, too, but his classes sold out so fast that I wonder if he shouldn’t bring a bodyguard to Tacoma, to protect him from his hordes of fanatical knitting fans.
