Knitting Blog 2-24-19

Last weekend, I traveled to Winslow, Arizona by train with sixty or so fellow knitters for a long weekend of knitting workshops. It was the second annual trip sponsored by the Yarn Shop of Knob Hill section of Albuquerque. I attended five classes and learned many new techniques.

Although I’d made a brioche scarf before, I learned a new way to cast on the two colors.

I’d never done intralac before, but I learned that skill too.


I tried knitting two socks on two circular needles; whether or not I ever use that skill, I don’t know. I will use what I learned about stranded swatching.

Once more we stayed at La Posada, a former Harvey House stop for the railroad. It’s been restored to an elegant hotel. The Turquoise Room restaurant serves locally sourced vegetables, meats and fruits that are delicious. It snowed Sunday morning. This was the view from our room.
