Kelbourne Woolens & Patricia's Yarns

This weekend was so special as we had an exclusive class with Kate Gagnon Osbourne & Courtney Kelly of Kelbourne Woolens, distributors of the Fibre Co Yarns.  

It was fantastic. The class was filled with 8 enthusiastic knitters ready to learn from two of the industry's leading yarn & knitwear designers.  

We began with lots of discussion of gauge, needles, patterns and how some things just do not work out. There was swatching and re-swatching, followed by measurements and size decisions. 

It was a very successful class and everyone smiled so brightly as they left with the utmost confidence in their chosen sweater project. Having the support of each other, the shop and Kate & Courtney is the perfect formula for success. Well done everyone!  Happy knitting!
