I love texture in knitting such as cables and slip stitch patterns. Typically you would not associate texture with colour work, which is typically flat and smooth. Bohus knitting is different, there are purl stitches interspersed with the colour work which creates a very different type of knitting. This texture in the colour work breaks up the transitions and makes very integrated colour changes. Iâ€™m currently working on a small book about gradient and colour change yarns. The pattern from this class will be in the book as itâ€™s a good example of how texture can add interest to colour changes in your work.Carol's workshop is suited to knitters who know the basics, and can work in the round, even if you are new to stranded colourwork. You'll receive plenty of detailed notes, and a kit with all supplies needed, which is included in the fee. Although this workshop is now fully booked, you can still add your name to the waiting list! The list operates on a fastest-finger-first basis, so even if we get just one cancellation you'll have as much opportunity to snap up the spot as everyone else. Have you knit any of Carol's designs recently? If you've been a member of the Irish Yarn Club, what was your favorite pattern?
