I have my September classes on the schedule at Shepherd's Choice. Of course, Color and Cables (renamed Color and Texture) is coming back. Color and Texture is for students wanting to take their knitting skills beyond the basics (cast-on, knit, purl, increase, decrease, and bind-off). The class is four, two-hour sessions and students can choose their preferred projects and yarn. Color techniques include stripes, stranding/Fair Isle, intarsia, and embellishing. Texture techniques include knit and purl surface designs, cables, and lace. Projects can be as simple as a washcloth or as complex as a sweater. One of my favorite books is Folk Vests, by Cheryl Oberle. The projects feature many knitting and construction techniques. I have two more projects in progress, which will bring my FOs (finished objects) from this book to five! Vests are wonderful garments. They add punch to any outfit and are a staple for in my wardrobe.
