Annie Modesitt is coming back to Stitch DC

This is one of my favorite Annie Patterns. Learn to read the chart of this and other lace patterns with a master knitter.
On Friday October 23rd from 10 to 5 pm, Annie will be teaching at Stitch DC.
Here are the details.
Date: Friday, October 23rd
Time: 10 to 5pm (this includes 2 classes)
Price: $95

Class Description:
In the morning learn Combination Knitting. This is NOT the knitting you're used to! Learn to knit using the Combination Method -- easy to learn and quick to execute. Beginner thru Advanced, special techniques will be taught as skills improve.
Christened "Combination Knitting" by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts (Fall 2000 Interweave Knits magazine) this method is a combination of the Western or German/American/English style of knitting and Eastern/Islamic knitting. Easier and quicker than traditional Western knitting, this method, creates a very even tension with less "rowing out" less wrist strain. If this method is different than how you've been taught, give it a try and you may discover a new love of knitting blooming! If you're a first time knitter - enjoy! You can mistress this right away!

In the afternoon, we will learn the basic theory behind knitting lace, and perfect your lace chart reading skills. Written instructions can have typos, but with a chart what you see is what you get, which is why it's the best option for knitters who want to "see" what their lace will look like before they take up their needles. In this class we will knit a few simple lace panels, and move onto a more challenging lace pattern for those who feel ready for a challenge. This class could change your entire knitting outlook!

Class size is limited so email me at or call 202.544.8900 (during business hours) to sign up.
