Description

This informative and exciting workshop will take participants through the creation of a festive holiday ball using double-pointed needles. Techniques of knitting in the round, using two colours, reading charts, and stranded colourwork will be used. At the end of the class, participants will be well on your way to having a festive ornamental ball. They will also have learned the skills to create and knit their own holiday patterns. Confident beginners and anyone who has yet to try working with two yarns at once will love this class!

Christopher WalkerCabin Boy Knits

Christopher Walker is a fibre artist, natural yarn dyer, knitwear designer, and founder of the Cabinboyknits label. Christopher splits his time between Toronto and his log cabin in Stirling, Ontario. His unconventional work is influenced by the environment around him, whether it be from the rugged Canadian landscape, or the vivid colours and graphic designs in Toronto’s tattoo parlours. He works with Canadian wool, and often profiles heritage sheep breeds. His work often profiles the dichotomy between masculinity and the soft intricate work of knitwear, and has been featured on the runway and at art gallery showings. For his naturally dyed yarn, he often forages in local forests to collect and create unique and distinctly Canadian yarn dyes. You can purchase his yarn online and can catch up with him on his YouTube channel Cabinboyknits.
