If you were to take a class from me somewhere in the world what would you want to be included in that class or workshop?
I am giving a workshop at the Knit Retreat “Knitting in Nature” in July here in the Netherlands Freeform Intarsia workshop detail. Would you be interested in such a workshop?
If you have viewed my galleries you may have other ideas for a class – please let me know what they might be as it will help me to plan for class options for 2012.
Please use the contact form here to email your suggestions.
Your help is very much appreciated.
I have been planning to write a book of my intarsia knit designs and the complete “how to” of intarsia as well – from working with a chart to your own free form creations, from working with 2 colours to many many colours. It is slow in coming together although I have some designs ready to be knitted, and I have much of the basics of intarsia established already – BUT – how to proceed?
You are invited to join
There will be heaps of people in Auckland during September/October this year due to the Rugby World Cup and many people will visit beautiful Devonport. Knitty Graffity is creating an outdoor wool art exhibition for Aucklanders and visitors alike to enjoy. The plan is to cover as much as possible of the wooden hand rail along the Devonport Wharf in Auckland.
So be creative!
Knit or crochet something beautiful. Use any colours and yarns you like. A stripped piece is great but if you would like to be a bit more creative – go for it! Feel free to add further embellishments, just make sure that they are firmly attached to your piece before sending. see the link above for size and shape ifnormation.
If you would like to participate in this exhibition, please send an email to knittygrafﬁty@hotmail.com. She would love to know what country you are from since this is likely to be an art collaboration with people from all over the world and will reply with details on where to send your piece of art when it’s ﬁnished. It must be in New Zealand by the end of July – so get knitting or crocheting quickly.
There will be a TV documentary made about this art project! Exciting!
Learning is not the same as study, nor the same as training. It is bigger than both. It is a cast of mind, a habit of life, a way of thinking about things, a way of growing.

Haarlem Ball Warmer Memorial tour & install – Queen’s Day, 30th April 2011
We took our snowball with its orange hat to view some of the lovely cafes and bars that we visit for jazz, blues, rock and wine and good company prior to installing on one of the shiny posts that now stand like the row of teeth on a comb in the Grote Markt of Haarlem.
