SAT – 3-1-2014 – 11:00 PM
Each $15 ($10 ASF Members); Ages 10+
Enrollment is limited to 20; early registration is strongly encouraged

This time native Icelanders Hildur Loftsdóttir and Steinunn Harðardóttir, with help from designer Védís Jónsdóttir, will build upon skills learned in the first knitting workshops by teaching – over the course of two Saturdays – how to knit in the round with two or more colors (stranded knitting). The project will be a húfa (hat), using circular and double pointed needles.

Participants need to know basic knitting techniques and are asked to bring their own knitting needles: circular 4.5mm/U.S. #7 double pointed and 16” circular needles. Exclusive design for these workshops by Védís with Icelandic lopi yarn will be provided by Istex.
