All knitterly creation stems from one simple element: yarn. It is the baker’s flour, the jeweler’s gold, the gardener’s soil. Yarn is creation, consolation and chaos all spun together into one perfect ball. It’s a simple concept, twisting fibers together into a continuous thread of yarn. But the variety of fibers, blends, and spins is truly infinite. So is our relationship with yarn. We love it, we covet it, we are knocked senseless by it, yet sometimes we are baffled, thwarted, and betrayed by it.” This workshop will lead you to a “much better understanding of yarn, how it’s made, who makes it, how it gets to you, and what it longs to become in your hands. The next time you pick up a skein and someone asks, ‘what are you going to do with it?’, you’ll be able to respond with confidence.”
