Annie Modesitt will be at Stitch DC June 23rd

You May Want to Call in Sick on Monday June 23rd....
Stitch DC has a very special guest teacher for you on June 23rd.

It may be summer, but there is always great things happening at Stitch DC. We have our summer FREE Fair Isle Knit along, our FREE 2008 Blanket Craft Along, tons of classes, and now we secured a very special day with ANNIE MODESITT.

In the morning, she will introduce us to "Combination Knitting". Christened "Combination Knitting" by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts (Fall 2000 Interweave Knits magazine), this combination of Western and Eastern style knitting is faster, creates a nicer tension with less "rowing out" and less wrist strain. Established knitters may enjoy this different method, new knitters can mistress this right away.

Marie will serve a lunch for all guests and then we will cocoon ourselves...

Each student will create a swatch based on the Fall Vogue Knitting 2005 cover sweater (shown left and designed by the instructor ). In this class students will use their own body measurements to determine the correct size of a cocoon sweater and perfect sleeve placement. The student and will work up a swatch utilizing all techniques used in creating the VK sweater.
