Moebius Explorations with Nadine Foster December 3rd, 2011

Would you like to knit a lacy “forever” scarf without weaving the two ends together? Then this 3 hour seminar with Nadine Foster is the perfect class for you! She will instruct you on Cat Bordhi’s fabulous moebius cast on, as well as, Jeny’s Super Stretchy Bind Off, both techniques required to create this wonderful Moebius Necklette!

Since discovering and using this cast on, Nadine has made numerous little scarves just big enough to go over the head and adorn the neck. The moebius twist adds a simple, yet classical touch to any accessory.

Space is limited–so reserve your seat today!

Cost: $40.00, Nadine’s pattern is included in the cost of the class!

Materials needed for the class:

  • 1 stitch marker

October 14th was national “I Love Yarn Day” and we had a wonderful time here at All About Yarn celebrating it with all of you that came in to share and knit with us! It was great fun and very inspirational seeing all the beautiful projects you all brought in to show-and-tell. Check-out the images below to see what local knitters have been working on this year!

We also wanted to congratulate Lynne Freeman, our raffle prize winner, who went home with a beautiful basket full of this year’s pattern books! The basket and books were generously donated by Lantern Moon and Classic Elite Yarns.

Beautiful "Autumn Oak" Felted Bag by Cathy Neary

Cathy Neary's River Twist Hat

Cathy is a beginning knitter on her way to turning pro. Her Autumn Oak comes alive with its flowing branches and playful clusters of leaves. The hat she just whipped up out of River Twist from Mountain Colors, creating a pattern to fit her needs–very adventurous and creative! We are looking forward to seeing what Cathy will come up with next!

Comfy Sock by Earlene Brown

Earlene knit this lovely sock out of Petals Socks from Universal Yarns. Inspired by the softness of fresh petals, Universal combined fine merino wool and angora to give this yarn its incredible softness, strength and warmth. Plus, the yarn in machine washable! Nicely done Earlene and thank you so much for sharing!
