This week on Ready, Set, Knit! we had the opportunity to speak with designer and teacher Gwen Bortner.  I’ve had the chance to not only take a class with Gwen, but spend some time with her.  She is a great teacher full of great knowlege and amazing energy.  She’ll be at WEBS on March 21& 22 teaching three different workshops.

Saturday, March 21 10am-1pm – Making Money From Your Hobby

Saturday, March 21 2pm-5pm – Flat to Circular and Back Again

Sunday, March 22 10am-5pm – Adaptations:  Customing a Published Pattern

Pixie and I also wrap-up the Beaded Scarf KAL this week.  Here are a couple of shots of Pixie’s finished scarf:

Next week we’ll be doing some informal book reviews – there have been so many new ones coming into the store!

    Kathy, I’m trying to locate the information about the spinning and knitting drop-ins on the Webs site, but I’m having no luck even though the info used to be there and I’ve gone through the site map trying to find it. I want to post links/info on a group on Ravelry.

    Here’s the link http://www.yarn.com/webs-classes-events-registration-info/

    We were moving stuff around this week on the classes section. I think this stuff should be it’s own page.

    I agree, and I see you’ve done so. Thank you for restoring this information.

    That is a gorgeous scarf in my favorite color. I have been listening to your podcast and wishing for a Webs location closer to me. Florida is the outlet capital of the south. How about it! 🙂

    Wauw, I really love this scarf. I’m thinking light green, a green and yellow shirt, a skirt and spring time – and then the scarf to make it all come together and look perfect… Uhmm…
