Japanese Patterns

My post from yesterday was notes made by Donna Druchunas from the Windy City Knitting Guild class that she taught on making socks from Japanese pattern books.

Having looked at these pattern books in the past, and marveling at the gorgeous patterns, I was excited to take a class that would demystify the instructions and allow me to work from and be inspired by theses pattern books. Donna did a fantastic job, I can't compliment her teaching techniques enough. We will be heading to Japan soon to visit Ethan and now I am on the hunt for pattern books.

Saturday she also taught a class on knitting Amish rugs, and one on beaded wristlets. Those looked fun, but my time was already committed. Next time…
