Lifelong learning - lifelong enjoyment

Knit a sweater day.

Now for the first time, a chance for experienced knitters to attend a whole-day workshop (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) on knitting an Icelandic sweater.

Learn to knit a lopapeysa.

As from 1 July 2017 I’ll be offering a comprehensive full-day workshop on knitting a lopapeysa, the famous Icelandic wool sweater. The workshop will be held on Wednesdays, from nine in the morning to five in the afternoon, including a short lunch break. The workshop is suitable for knitters who are confident knitting the Continental way and it will cover how to assemble the sleeves and the body, knitting with two colors at the same time, a technique for decreasing and a few ways of casting off, amongst other things.

Included in the price is the workshop, a pattern, wool for a sweater fitting a pre-school child and soup for lunch.

Background experience needed: Knitting in the Continental way.

Knitters should bring needles they are comfortable with.
