Knitting Retreat

April 28th and 29th was our knitting retreat and fun was had by all. We met up at the Green Hills Hampton Inn and even Ann Shayne joined us for Saturday's class. We learned some wonderful techniques. Saturday was the Fair Isle Tam and Sunday was the Gansey technique. There were 20 of us for the Fair Isle class and the color choices for the tams were very diverse. We learned how to knit two colors at a time, one in each hand and we learned some wonderful cast-on methods. Sunday's Gansey group was a tad smaller but again we learned some new techniques.

Beth Brown-Reinsel was a very patient and accomodating instructor and she was a joy to have as class instructor. We even took a moment to share the Parthenon with her Saturday evening, so she could see a little bit of Nashville.

One of the things we learned on Saturday was the corrugated ribbing. You can see an example of that on this tam, purple and orange make such a wonderful contrast and you can really see it.

Below are some pictures of the tams, some finished, some in progress.
