Thinking Spring on such a winter’s day

All of New England is hunkered down for a classic December Nor’Easter but I’m thinking about spring.

The Spring 2015 Squam Art Retreat has been announced and pre-registration is available through January 5th. I will be teaching a subject near and dear to my heart: Finishing.

60_428_428_amychristoffers_finishingtouch_class_web-1

As a completely self-taught knitter finishing was the great challenge in knitting- how do you know how many buttons is the right number of buttons? In this class we will workshop the process of finishing from how to choose the best cast-on to weaving in ends for beautiful professionally finished looking knits. You can read more about the class here… And read more about why I am SO excited to be going to Squam here.

June can’t come soon enough!

PSA- No email 3/5-3/15 (give or take a few days)

Hiya Knitters! A quick heads up, I will be unable to read or answer email weekdays for about 2 weeks. I’m in the middle of moving house from VT to RI, starting the new job, wrapping up those last finishing details for the book (it goes to the printer this week!!!!) and doing the mom thing… Its a little crazy… I really appreciate your patience and understanding. Once the new house has internet established I’ll be back and in the mean time I will do my best.
