KANG Winter Workshop with Alissa Barton

 

We are pAlissa Bartonleased to announce that KANG will host a workshop and trunk show featuring Alissa Barton of Knitting Fairy Designs in February 2019.  A teacher with more than 30 years’ experience, Alissa is known throughout the fiber community as its go-to source for anything and everything involving knitting, from cast-on to bind-off.  Her Knitting Fairy patterns have been published in a variety of magazines and are available on Ravelry.  Alissa has taught classes at workshops, guilds, and retreats throughout the country since 1990, having most recently been an instructor at the Lambs on the Run retreat in Breckenridge, Colorado, along with Ann Budd, Romi Hill, Jennifer Miller, and Norah Gaughan.

The workshop will be held on Saturday and Sunday, February 2nd and 3rd, at the Courtyard by Marriott Westchase, 9975 Westheimer, Houston, Texas, 77042 (between Beltway 8 and S. Gessner).  Following are the class offerings and workshop schedule.

 

 

 

Download homework and materials for all classes

OWNING THE DECREASE (3-hour class):  $40
Saturday, 2/2/19 9 am – 12 pm 

We are all familiar with using decreases to shape our knitting, and we all know that we like working certain decreases and dislike others. Have you ever thought about how you can change the type of decrease and alter the overall look of the design?  Picture a beautiful lace flower, where it comes to a point at the tip of a leaf.  Have you ever wondered how you might have made it look more pointed or rounded?  Maybe you aren’t a fan of P2togbl—is there something you can do to make it easier?  We will explore not just decreases, but the art of the stitch and how to bend it to our whimsy.  Our project will be a lovely shawl featuring the decreases taught in class. 

  • Experience level – Intermediate to Advanced
  • Skills needed – Cast on, knit, purl, and bind off
  • Skills learned – Single decreases, double decreases, paired decreases, feathered decreases, purlside arrowhead decrease, purl centerline double decrease, knit left double decrease, and others. 

 

 

 

KITCHENER IN PATTERN (3-hour class):  $40
Saturday, 2/2/19 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Many knitters avoid the Kitchener Stitch. It’s NOT hard!  Learn not only how to work a basic Kitchener in stockinette and garter stitch, but how to weave your knitting together in patterns—even lace!  We will use one of our samples to make a cute cup cozy. 

  • Experience level – Advanced
  • Skills needed – Cast on, knit, purl, and bind off

 

PICTURE YOUR KNITS (6-hour class):  $80 (add lunch for an additional $9)
Sunday, 2/3/19 9 am – 12 pm/1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Welcome to Intarsia!  Intarsia is the art of changing colors within your knitting to create a picture without adding to the thickness of your knitting. In true Intarsia, the tails are never carried, but you will learn how to deal with them expertly and efficiently.  In this class, we will explore changing colors in straight lines, diagonals, rounded edges, and florals to create pictures within your knitting. You do not need to be an expert to work Intarsia, just willing!  In class, we will learn the skills necessary to knit a beautiful lace shawl with an Intarsia border. Charts for users of Knit Companion will be available. 

  • Experience level – Beginner to advanced
  • Skills needed – Cast on, knit, purl, bind off

 

TRUNK SHOW
Saturday, 2/3/19 – 4:30pm – 6:00pm

In addition to the workshop, a trunk show of Alissa’s original Knitting Fairy designs, along with a selection of hand-dyed yarn from Theodora’s Pearls, is scheduled for Saturday, February 2, from 4:30 – 6:00 pm.  Refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are registered for a class. 

Registration is now open to the public.  Non-guild members will be charged an additional $25 to register with the option of joining the Guild. If you wish to join the Guild, please go to this page: http://knitatnight.org/join.
