First of all, a reminder to the Friday night crew: tonight the studio is closed and I am missing you and can’t wait to share about camp. I’ll see you next Friday with about a zillion new ideas!
Went to the welcome dinner last night and had a blast. It was amazing to see in person and touch the VERY knitted garments I have seen in photos in all of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s and Meg Swansen’s books. It was a walk though the history of knitting. Today we are supposed to learn about EPS — Elizabeth’s Percentage System.
Look up Amy Detjen on Craftsy. She has a class for what I think is called The Squirrel Sweater (Donna it has waist shaping and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL hem!). I saw this sweater last night and IT IS GORGEOUS with details that I have not seen before or even thought of. I am looking forward to knitting it next! She is helping me find out how to carry kits for this in the studio. More on this soon!
People are here of all ages and from all over the United States, including Leslie from Hawaii! Some people, this is their first year; one person, her 23rd year. Just amazing. It is cozy and warm and friendly and I’m loving being here. Hopefully, I can coax some of you to come with me next year!
