Helical Workshop at Park Avenue Yarns

I just finished teaching 2 workshops about Helical Knitting organized by The Knit at Night Guild (KANG) at Park Avenue Yarns in League City, Texas.

I must say that I had a wonderful experience there.  At first, I was nervous…. I mean, I had taught this class a few times before, but never in a formal manner like this one.  But after the first few minutes, everyone really warmed up and I got comfortable and the classes went GREAT, in my opinion.

So I just wanted to post some pictures of the samples that I made for this class and give a shout out to KANG and Park Avenue Yarns for organizing and hosting the classes.

Thank you!!  I had a blast!!
