Jennifer Miller from Theodora's Pearls
Teaching @ TYF
On Monday May 12th, Jennifer Miller, nationally known instructor from Theordor's Pearls, will be teaching:
"Working with Handpainted Yarn/How to Best Show Off Your Multi-Colored Skeins." This two hour class (from 3:30 to 5:30) will amp up your color confidence and knitting successes. Jennifer, a designer of hand painted and dyed yarns using unusual & luxury fibers, will show & teach the most spectacular ways to show off your special skeins. This class covers fearless color combining, innovative ways to work with 2+ skeins of handpainted yarns, color theory and more. You will focus on the creation of socks & shawls, as well as mitts & scarves.
You'll learn how to visualize how a handpainted, multi-color skein will knit up, how to work with long & short color repeats, & explore the stitches that avoid unsightly color pooling. You'll practice learning several stitch patterns & their variations that show off multi-colored yarn, including chevron; linen stitch; mitered square; feather & fan. You'll leave with beautiful illustrations of handpaints, & confidence & resources to create lovely pieces on your own!
This is an intermediate class, intended for students who are relatively proficient knitters. Participants should be able to knit, purl, yarn over, ssk, k2tog, ktb, and double decrease.
For the class you'll need a skein or two of handpainted fingering weight yarn, ready to knit (wound into a ball or cake), straight or double pointed needles (size 4, 5, 6).
In addition to teaching, Jennifer will have Theodora's Pearls handpainted yarn for sale at Tempe Yarn on Monday and Tuesday.
The class is $25 so call today to sign up!
