Several people have requested some form of follow-up class for students who want more input into their designs, one-on-one technique hand-holding (steeks, anyone?), design solution brainstorming, another chance to work with the yarn playpen, or simply an opportunity to knit with other Fair Isle enthusiasts.
OK, then--let's see how this can work: Enter the Ongoing Feral Play Date experiment.
What They Are: I will be on hand to cheerlead, to critique, to give suggestions, to demonstrate techniques--whatever is needed to keep you moving on your project.
What They Are Not: These play dates are not substitutes for the standard workshops. I will not be teaching--rather, I will be reinforcing what was taught in the workshops, helping people get past roadblocks and moving again.
Length: 3 hours (come for all 3 hours or just drop by).
Where: My home in Berkeley, California.
Cost: $20 for each play date. Includes access to the complete collection of Jamieson's Spindrift and up to 115 yards of yarn.
Prerequisite: For people who have taken any of my classes in the past.
Dates: Sunday, October 20th; Sunday, November 17th; Sunday, December 15th.
Time: 10:00 to 1:00
Reserve a spot: Drop me a line (janine AT feralknitter DOT com) at least 3 days before the playdate to let me know you plan to attend.
Let me know what you think!
In the meantime.... Arrividerci! I'm heading out the door, off on a vacation to Italy!!! (That deserves several exclamation points, wouldn't you say?) I hope to blog about my adventures while I'm there, but I have a great distrust of my ability to juggle the technological requirements involved. We'll see.
I've trained my family to handle orders, but here will inevitably be some delays in communication. Thank you for your patience.
While I'm gone, enjoy your own adventures, large or small.
And if you are looking for an adventure? Try the Taos Wool Festival the first weekend of October--there are still a couple of spaces left in my Fair Isle Tam class (Friday, October 4) and the Fair Isle Color 2-day workshop (Wednesday and Thursday, October 2 & 3)!
