Thank you to everyone who came to meet Alana Dakos yesterday! It was wonderful to see you – I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much I did.
In Alana’s class, we learned mattress stitch on stockinette and reverse stockinette knitting. We tried our hand at kitchener stitch and the 3-needle bind off, and ended with a lesson on weaving in ends. Good finishing adds so much to garments, we all appreciated Alana’s tips and tricks!
Several students brought projects they’d knit from Botanical Knits. Alana’s designs are just beautiful, and it’s great seeing them in different yarns.
Alana only had a little time in Philadelphia, but she really liked it. She ate her first cheesesteak and visited some of our historic Colonial sites. I think we can convince her to come back and see us again. I hope so!
