Pi Shawls - not a mystery!

Elizabeth Zimmerman made Pi shawls famous in the 1980s, and they’ve been a staple of knitters’ wardrobes and project bags ever since. But did you know you can take the concept of a pi shawl for a joyride? In this talk, Bristol Ivy will break down the simple math behind pi shawls. We’ll talk about how we can use that math to explore different shapes, stitches, and even directions of knitting to create a pi shawl truly our own! This will be a fantastic Chat, with Bristol math is never scary and really fun!

Saltwater Knitting

Shirley and Christine take you on a virtual knitting tour of their island home, as seen through their award-winning books. Newfoundland’s extreme weather has influenced its traditional knits for centuries. In Saltwater Mittens they introduce you to the iconic Trigger Mitt and share tips on completing this essential cold weather wear. Next, from Saltwater Classics and Saltwater Gifts, you gain insight on why traditional knits were necessary for the survival of European settlers. As time passed a distinct culture evolved, and caps and mittens evolved too. Shirley and Christine highlight the heartwarming Hello Goodbye Mittens, every hunter’s favorite Moose Cap and the importance of Soldiers Socks. They complete their Newfoundland knitting tour through the newly released book, Saltwater Socks.

Ziggurats!

Åsa will share her passion for the Ziggurat way of knitting sweaters. She will tempt you to adopt Ziggurating as one splendid way to seamless, well-fitting, tailored garments with absolutely minimal weaving in of ends. Indeed, if you were to knit from a huge skein with yardage enough for a whole sweater, you would have precisely 6 ends to weave in at the end. True fact!

Åsa will point you to the sign posts that let you navigate through any Ziggurat pattern – for example, all increases are colour coded in the same way in every (every) Ziggurat.
There will be opinionated views on how to choose your size correctly, a celebration of the rear (it deserves both attention and room to live), you may be told that a pattern is just a suggestion – that off-piste knitting is not only tolerated but positively encouraged. You will also learn a little about the finer details that add both finesse and pizazz to the quite classic shapes and stitch patterns Åsa likes.
