This week I'm working on new class material for this fall.  One of my new ideas is a re-tool of my "Stranded In Your Socks" class, which some of you may remember is my introduction to stranded colorwork knitting .  It's still going to be the same fun and easy introduction, but now I'm also offering it with this new sexy hat as the project!  It's called "The Forest For The Trees".  I love it so much I'm going to also offer the pattern for sale on Ravelry, as soon as I have it finished. 

Another new class I'm putting together is about color theory.  It's going to be a full-day class, with a swell project, centered around the fundamental concepts of how colors play together.  This one is still bubbling in my little grey cells, so if you have suggestions/ideas about what YOU'D like to learn in such a class, post a comment and let me know!

I'm also planning a new advanced class.  It's going to focus on how knitters can use steeks to shape knitted garments, both in stranded colorwork, and beyond.  I'm realizing that I've converted enough steek-lovers that I need to give them a new class which takes it all to the next level.

And if all that weren't enough to make my (your) brain hurt, this week I'm creating a brand new pattern for the Knitters Review Retreat.  It's a new mitten for my Sassy Selbuvotter class, and it's a show-stopper, if I do say so myself.  Stay tuned for the photos!

Keep an eye on my events page to see where & when these things are all happening, and in the meantime, bear with me if I go dark for a bit:  I've got on my Thinking Cap.
