I got to attend KC yesterday and I am in love. This was the second annual Knitters Connection held in Columbus, OH and sponsored by The Merc. I was not able to attend last year, but heard such wonderful things about it that I put it on my calendar to make sure I'd get to a class.
I signed up for Sally Melville's "Two Colors Two Hands" class to learn more about fairisle knitting (or stranded knitting, or color work, etc.). It was fabulous. We learned about 5 different ways to work with two or more colors, including the Portugese purling technique with the yarn wrapped around the back of your neck. It actually worked! I am already planning my first fairisle felted tote bag.
After the class, I had the pleasure of sharing lunch and then a few hours of knitting time with other KC members. It was awesome. Next year, I am going to attend the entire event. Definitely.
