Guest: Shannon Oakey talks to Kathy about her upcoming class at WEBS! She also talks about her recent class she had up in Maine. She’ll be teaching Sewing Patterns for Knitting. You’ll learn how to look at sewing patterns and create a knitted piece from that. This is a great skill to have. If you want to make the sweaters you’re already knitting fit better, you’ll pick up skills in this class that will help you do that.

Along with Shannon, Andi Smith will be here teaching Big Foot Knits, which will teach you how to create great fitting socks no matter what the size!

Alasdair Post-Quinn will also be with Shannon as he debuts his newest book, Extreme Double Knitting.

Cooperative Press has lots in the works! They’re starting a new division – food books! The Fresh Design series is also coming out for knitting. Each book features 10 projects.

If you’re at Rhinebeck, you’ll find Cooperative Press in Building C, and Shannon is teaching at Stitches East!
