Knitting the Landscape with Celeste Nossiter

Knitting the Landscape with Celeste Nossiter Join us as we use an extraordinary mountain and historic ranching landscape to inspire the design of a stranded hat or cowl. First we'll explore, sketch, take photos and make notes. A brief experiential overview of color theory will follow. After that you will choose colors and yarns, and practice combining colors.There will be lots of time to revise the swatches to see what combinations of colors produce the desired effect. You will end the day having started a hat or cowl, and have notes to knit an even larger garment.  This will be a one-day intermediate knitting class for students with some stranding color work experience. More about Celeste Nossiter: Celeste Nossiter loves color and experimenting within the traditional stranded knitting technique (one version of which is Fair Isle, but it's a technique practiced in many cultures). Celeste has taught at the Taos Wool Festival, Estes Park Wool Festival, and at several yarn shops in Albuquerque, Taos, Santa Fe, Flagstaff, and Sedona. A lifelong study of color and an MFA in Painting sparks Celeste's curiosity to keep learning, and to share that enthusiasm with knitters. Be sure to visit Celeste's very informative website, ! Materials List: - 16" circular needles, size 2 or 3 - graph paper, pencil & eraser -digital camera or phone camera -stitch markers -During class you will choose 5 skeins of Shetland Spindrift wool (Celeste will be providing the yarn, and the cost is included in the $95 class fee). The workshop fee is $95. More details and directions will follow. Feel free to send any questions to [email protected]
