I'm working on my class for the YarnOver SleepOver Retreat, April 12-14. The idea is similar to the Challenge in the last post and the talk I did at the Kawartha knitting guild. There is a theme here that I've been working on.

A Basic pattern, and we all have some in our libraries, has a lot of possibilities that you can't see in the photo. If you can take a step away from the written pattern, just a tiny step, there are many options available to you from every Basic pattern you own. What do you see here?
Small projects with acres and acres of stockinette stitch. What could we do with all those stitches? Could we put a cable in there, a texture pattern, maybe some lace, how about a stitch pattern you make up yourself? We'll talk about what we might do, how we could do it and have some fun thinking up as many wild and crazy ways to decorate as we can. It's sounding like a good time to me.
If you're interested in a weekend away and can join us, here's the info YarnOver SleepOver Retreat . I can't wait to see what we come up with.
