We learned all about the different varieties of Nordic knitting and decided what we'd most like to get out of the class. I've had a mad desire to learn continental style for ages and luckily that was one of the main objectives! We also got to try a rather fancy cast-on method before our delicious lunch appeared, then afterwards it was on to the two-handed colourwork. Guys, it was so easy! I went in there feeling like there was a good chance I'd forget everything a few hours later, but I left feeling confident, like everything was in fact lodged firmly into my brain. Well, give it a week then ask me again if I remember how to do that crazy cast-on.
Karie was an awesome teacher and so full of interesting stories that I want to go back and do it all over again. I'm jealous of anyone who got into her classes at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival - I'll have to move faster next year!
I really, really liked this weekend. What did you guys get up to?
