Creative Multi-directional Knitting with Myra Wood
Ever thought to yourself, "I'm just not creative?" or found yourself in a creative slump? This energizing hands-on workshop and lecture will dispel the myths and rekindle your creative fire. Even if you don't think of yourself as an artist, you'll learn how to unleash your creativity using a step-by-step process of color, texture, and simple design to take your knitting in different directions. Spend a day exploring a new approach to multi-directional knitting and discover how with just a few measurements and some quick plans, you'll be off on a true knitting adventure.
Starting with a simple panel that can be modified into a purse or sweater front, you'll learn the steps it takes to create your own spectacular fabric. Stitch your way through different techniques and stitch patterns and go home with a plan and solutions for finishing your own unique design without a written pattern. Be prepared for some serious fun!
