During the last few weeks I was privileged to take a few different classes with some very special teachers.
The first class was November 9th and it was given at Tempe Yarn. One of my favorite sock knitting gurus, Cat Bordhi, was teaching her new Sweet Tomato Heel class. I had a great time in spite of the fact that I had a bad cold. My husband, Jay, kept telling me to rest at home until the day of the class. I had a really good time, but I did leave an hour early to go home and rest. Below are pictures from the Cat Bordhi class. I have the joy of taking 2 more classes with her in January!

The first class I took with Jeane was here Two Fisted Knitting class. We used Jeane's Shetland yarn to kearn to knit using both hands to learn how to knit Fair Isle. Once I understood how to hold the yarns I was off and knitting!

Happy Holiday Weekend!
