I’m Back!

Whew! It’s been a busy, crazy, fun-filled 2 weeks.  I just got back from the Reno Knit and Crochet Show last night and today is all about catching up.

I really just want to play with my new yarn and practice the cool stuff I learned from the classes I took.

I was in Vashti Braha’s Introduction to Slip Stitch on Thursday. Which was just as incredibly inspiring as I expected. I can hardly wait to explore the options for the fabrics we were creating in her class. Will definitely be designing more using these stitches in the future. You can learn more about Vashti and her amazing fount of crochet knowledge on her website Designing Vashti.

Then took 2 Hairpin Lace classes with Jennifer Hansen on Saturday. I didn’t expect much from myself for learning hairpin lace, but Jen proved to be the amazing teacher she always is and I am now a hair-pin lace crocheting stitcher. Wooot! Honestly, if you’ve never taken a class with Jennifer Hansen/Stitch Diva treat yourself and get into one ASAP. She really breaks down what seems complicated and confusing into manageable bites. You can learn more about Jennifer Hansen at her website Stitch Diva Studios.

I promise more photos and news from the Reno Chain Link very soon.

  1. Wasn’t Vashti’s slip stitch class awesome? I can’t wait to find time to play with that stitch more. And what fun we had at the troublemaker’s table in that class!

    • Was I sitting at the troublemakers’ table? I had no idea. (Bats lashes innocently)
