Timely Textures- Spinning Functional art yarns with Apothefaery

 

Faery Mirto

Course Description

Do you love all the creative art yarns you see online and at fiber fairs? Ready to expand your spinning into the great unknown? Or are you a knitting spinner who struggles to use your art yarns in a functional way? Join us at my most popular class! I’ll not only cover So.Many.Techniques, but we’ll also talk about beehive, coil and lock placement for knitting these unique yarns without the struggle faced by so many spinners. After learning the basics of textured spinning, by perfecting thick and thin and corespinning, move on to beehives, continuous coils, boucles and multiple styles of lockspinning. Hands on instructor time makes all the difference in these finicky techniques, and I’m excited to help each of you take your spinning to the next level!
