Sharlene of the Yarniacs Podcast, following the quest of two friends to find the perfect yarn, dropped by ImagiKnit! She’s as charming in person as she is on the podcast and blog. Visit the blog to follow their fiber adventures and find the link to subscribe to their podcast through iTunes.
We were so pleased to have Sandra McIver, author of the innovative book Knit, Swirl! visit ImagiKnit yesterday. Her one piece, one seam designs look amazing on everyone and are sure to keep the knitter engaged from start to finish.
We were so excited to have designer, spinner, knitter, crocheter, blogger, and all around fiber artist Caitlin ffrench stop by the shop all the way from Canada. Here she is holding the much-loved Malabrigo Chunky in Franch Ochre.
Her designs are chic and sweet (and most of them are free!) so there’s no reason not to make them. Visit her on Ravelry or check out her blog to learn more about the very charming Caitlin ffrench.
We were so happy to have Abby from the much loved Knit Knit Cafe podcast and blog visit the shop. Check our her blog or subscribe to her podcast (it’s free!) for your knitting fix on the go.
Amy Hendrix, the creative mind behind Madeline Tosh, stopped by for a color theory workshop this weekend. We learned some basic principles of color theory, and then used those principles to better mix and match colors for our knitting projects.
The first half of the class was spent learning some of the history of color, and how it has been used and created throughout. We learned many of the terms we could use to describe colors such as hue and saturation.
The second half of the class we got down to business learning what made a good color combination, how to match our own complexions, and how to translate that into our knitting projects.
Thanks again Amy! We had a great time!
