This three-session class will be held on Saturdays, March 4, 18, and April 8 from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm PT, on Zoom

All knitters know what knitting has to offer, but what if you could add the ability to create secret messages to that list? Bristol has been experimenting with encoding words into lace knitting, so that you could, for instance, make a shawl that has the names of your children, or the words to a favorite poem.

In this workshop, we'll work on:

1) designing our own lace patterns using improvisational lace techniques

2) encoding, where we’ll turn words into numbers, numbers into knitting stitches, and knitting stitches into lace to create a one-of-a-kind keepsake. Join us and add to your knitting vocabulary.

Materials: You will need: smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles, knitting graph paper, pencil, and eraser.

    Yes, they will be recorded and available for a limited time (I think 2 weeks for each class) to all those who register.

    Will these zoom classes be recorded for viewing at a later time? I am just wondering as the first class I am away and may not have internet, but I am hoping to work it out when I arrive to my destination. Looking forward to it!!
    Thank you and be well,

    Hi Gwen,
    No, it didn’t go through. I reset everything if you’d like to try again.
    Thank you!
