Last Fox Paws Class for March and new ideas brewing…

Today was¬†the third and final session of the March Fox Paws KAL at¬†Serial Knitters. Our tenacious and dedicated group¬†has worked very hard over the past month and pushed on through the frustration of wrong stitch counts, dropped stitches and unfamiliar stitch-lumps. I was so excited to see everyone’s progress. Here are a few…

They are looking so beautiful and we are all grateful to Xandy Peters for this great pattern. For those of you who couldn’t make the session, post your progress pictures in the Serial Knitters Ravelry discussion forum here: Picture Thread.

Due to popular demand, we have scheduled another Fox Paws workshop in May! Details:

Fox Paws Workshop and Knit Along with Pamela Grossman. 

Workshop Series $75 Р Sundays, May 3, 24, & 31 from 1:30 Р3:30pm.

Loads more information on the shop website.

In other knitting news I am completely obsessed with the idea of combining three¬†things I love: gorgeous long-color-changing Spincycle Yarn, mathematically inspiring mobius knitting and complex and beautiful stitchwork in two-color brioche. Oh, and then there’s a fourth element I’d like to experiment with:¬†combining different yarn weights in the same project to create unexpected fabric.

So I’ve been desperate to carve out some time where I could just sit and explore some of these techniques.¬†This weekend I got to play a bit. I experimented with¬†a variation of Iris Schreier’s mobius cast-on¬†that was surprisingly, a success on the first go-around!¬†Here’s how it looked earlier today:

Serial Knitters just got in a big selection of Dyed in the Wool from Spincycle and I am pairing it up with some Shibui and Madelinetosh for inspiration. Dreamy. I hope to have more to show you soon. Once I get a basic version of this pattern written, I want to incorporate some fancy brioche stitch patterns like those featured in Nancy Marchant‘s gorgeous new book Knitting Fresh Brioche. I predict there will be some brioche stitch classes coming your way soon…

Find lots more pictures of my experiments on my Instagram page. Love to hear your feedback! Happy knitting!
