Pacific NW Machine Knitting Seminar Wrap Up June 9, 2012

Posted by myblueheavenknits in Uncategorized.

I want to thank Angelika’s Yarn Store, and Angelika herself, for pulling everything together for the newly reinvigorated Pacific NW MK Seminar this past 10-11 May in Vancouver, Washington.  I just got my photos downloaded after our little trip to Palm Springs.  I think everyone had a great time and there were many good instructors there to excite and inspire both seasoned and new to the world of machine knitting.  Angelika got a good photographer and posted many photos on her website, so check them out.  Just go to Facebook and search for Angelika’s Yarn Store, and they are there.

My husband got a couple of shots of one of my Short Row classes:

I had some full classes, so I didn’t even see him taking these:

While I was busy, he did some artistic shots around the area.  This is where nature gives me ideas for colors and textures:


Of course, he had to go to the famous Multnomah Falls (my Slipt Stitchers Knitting Guild is doing the Multnomah Shawl as their Knit-A-Long, so I had to get that picture of its namesake!).

And last but not least, Mt. Shasta – ever present display of nature’s grandeur:

I hope everyone who attended the Pacific NW MK Seminar comes next year and brings two friends.   I specialize in beginners and use fabulous yarns on the Bulky machine, but I am not exclusive to the Bulky.  I tell my students about the 27 different machines I have – I love them all.  Each machine does at least one thing beautifully, so of course you need more than one to handle all the inspiration you get from new yarns and new instructors!  You have more than one set of hand knitting needles, right? Keep knitting until all the yarn is gone!
