Antje Gillingham grew up in Germany and learned to knit at the age of eight. In 1982 she moved to the central coast of California, where she lived for the next 17 years. When her husband's job relocated the family to Tennessee, she rediscovered her infatuation with fiber and all that is knitting.
Antje is the author of three best-selling books and has published patterns in several knitting magazines.
Over the years, her travels have taken her all over the country, and along the way she has made many new friends who all share the same passion for knitting. It is these wonderful, like-minded souls who continue to inspire her to design, write and teach.
When she isn't traveling or teaching at a variety of knitting workshops, she can be found relaxing at home...with knitting in hand.

420-6 Intermediate 2-at-a-Time Socks on 2 Circulars Toe-Up
Try a new take on knitting two socks at a time on two circular needles and work them from the toe up! Take the guess work out of how much yarn you'll need for your socks by trying them on as you go! No more counting rows or stitches and no more single socks in your drawer! Practice each section of the sock anatomy from toe to cuff during this workshop. We won't be able to knit a complete adult pair in one day but at the end of our time in class you'll be able to go back to your hotel room, cast on and start working on your very own spectacular pair of completely identical socks at the same time.

454-3 Intermediate Ear-Lings: Beaded Headbands
I'm going to be perfectly honest! I look hideous in hatsâ€”any size, any shape, any colorâ€”but my ears freeze instantly at the mere thought of cold weather. This means I need something to cover them!
Enter the ear-warming headband! It's compact, quick to put on and most importantly: No Bad Hat Hair Day!! Ahhh- the perfect cold weather accessory. Let's combine it with cables, the queens of texture and beads, those wonderful sparkly pieces of glass, and create a one of a kind beaded cabled headband! We'll fearlessly knit with beads, cable without cable needles and practice the three-needle bind off. Join me for this fun, quick, little project with amazing ear warming power!
