I’ve been in Ohio most of the summer, taking care of family. I’ll be returning to California for a short time in September for a special collaboration with the Ball & Skein & More, the LYS in Cambria. Kris and Oz have been enthusiastic supporters of my book, right from the very first swatch. Now they’re not only selling my book, but also giving me a trunk show and an opportunity to teach a workshop!

Samples from my book Reversible Scarves: Curing the Wrong Side Blues will be on display from September 8th – 16th. Come see the wide variety of techniques my book has to offer! With over 30 patterns, there’s something for everyone.

Linen Stitch Workshop

The workshop I’ll be teaching at the Ball & Skein & More is on September 15th from 5:30 to 7:30. One of my all-time favorite stitch patterns for scarves is the linen stitch. It’s perfect for variegated yarn, is attractive on both sides, and lies flat. Its versatility can be seen in the photos above – all three scarves are made from this one simple stitch, yet have completely different looks!  Using the technique and pattern from my book, I’ll show you how to create the stitch, step by step. Then you’ll be set free to experiment and, if you want, to start a project scarf.

If you’re interested in taking the workshop, you can sign up on the Ball & Skein & More’s registration page or stop in. Or for more information, call (805) 927-3280 .

Recommended yarn for the project scarf: 2 skeins of Manos del Uruguay Maxima (the Ball & Skein & More has a zillion great colorways to choose from!)

I’ll sign books during the workshop, and one lucky workshop participant will win a book!
