You have probably seen the popular scandinavian-styled knitted christmas ornaments from their book "55 Christmas Balls to Knit" by Arne & Carlos. Or maybe even watched one of their newly launched YouTube videos on ArneCarlos.com. Did you know that they will be returning to the Nordic Knitting Conference to be held at the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle this coming October?
I have had the extreme pleasure of taking class and hearing them speak in Seattle, Portland, and New York City. To say that I am a fan is an understatement indeed. But I am not alone. They travel from their home in Norway to Japan, Korea, all across continental Europe, and the United States to share their fiber inspiration and delightful selves.
Their 6 knitting books are published in numerous languages. And they have just launched a new book on making art journals utilizing collected papers and ephemera. So you don't even have to use yarn to join the group!
Additionally a line of yarn, Regia Design Line by Arne & Carlos, makes beautiful self-patterned socks and other accessories as well as adorable teddy bears.
This Knit Along (KAL) is a series of monthly meetings held on the third Tuesday to work on projects from any of the Arne & Carlos books or using Arne & Carlos yarn. It is a great way to get ready for their upcoming time in Seattle. I will be supporting you in your selection and working on your project. The options range from those that are quick to finish all the way to impressive Norwegian-styled sweaters. You may even learn a new technique such as double knitting, stranded colorwork, knitting in the round, making socks, felting, or duplicate stitch. It is your choice.
Please be sure you are confident in your skills to make a knit stitch, make a purl stitch, cast-on and bind-off before you register for this KAL. These basic skills will not be taught. Learning additional skills specific to your selected projects will be supported.
Cost $15 per session or $40 for three sessions. Join us for as many sessions as your schedule allows.
