I had the absolute pleasure of taking Annie's Combination Knitting Workshop last Sunday. There's always so much more to learn in this wonderful world of knitting and Annie shared her wisdom and advice on plenty of topics...
Combination Knitting was a hit, as everyone agreed that their rib stitches in particular looked a lot neater than usual. I also think I made the crispest non-gappy-looking cable of my knitting career on Sunday!
We squeezed a lot of learning into two hours as Annie showed us her method of cabling without a cable needle which included such nuggets as "pinch, pull and poke" :D
And I'm already trying out a new and unusual increase method in my latest All Seasons Cardi
- it's quick and neat and I'm loving it!
The feedback from the workshop has been great and I hope everyone is enjoying using their new skills.
Annie is continuing her travels in Ireland for a few more weeks and you can check in on her progress over on her blog
. She's had a bit of drama so far so if you want to send her good Irish knitter vibes I am sure they would be appreciated :)
