My second UFO for this month was a sweater I began two years ago and which I tried to finish in a rush during my last vacation. Rushing things never is a good thing, and so the almost finished result was less than pleasing and begged to be ripped - at least partly.
Which I did. And then I knit some better fitting sleeves and finished the neckline and after cleaning up all the end, washing and blocking, it looks really nice. I think I will like it.
I remebered I based the pattern loosely on the Fana Cardigan in Priscilla Gibson Roberts' book Knitting in the Old Way. A knitting book I can only recommend. This and her Ethnic Socks and Stockings could well be the only knitting books one needs.
Re: Online Classes
I am in the process to set up a new website for my German classes. The move from one provider to the next proved to be as bumpy as it was expected and it still takes a lot of time to get things sorted out. I will squeeze in updating my English shop for my English classes as soon as possible. There will be two English classes this year, one 4 weeker on the basics of dyeing with natural dyes, indigo vats included, and a second 4 weeker on printing and other decorative techniques with natural dyes (including katazome). The second one will be based upon the experiences we made in the first class. Alternatively, people who took part in my classes last year can skip the basic class and take part in the printing class only, if they like to continue with these techniques.
