Bazaar Girls Yarn Shop
Bazaar Girls Yarn Shop is hosting a Zoom class with Bristol Ivy: “Say It In Stitches: Encoded Lace.” Please join us as we learn how to encode words into lace knitting, so that you could, for instance, knit the words to a special poem, or your children’s names. You’ll learn how to: 1) design your own lace patterns using improvisational lace techniques; 2) turn words into numbers, numbers into knitting stitches, and knitting stitches into lace to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Join us and add to your knitting vocabulary.
March 4, 18 & April 8 from 10:30 am-12:30 pm on Zoom. The classes will be recorded for later viewing.
