Weren't the Aran Isles fun?! This month we will continue our trip around the world Knit A-Long with Master Knitter Pam Cornutt. The destination: Orenburg, Russia. Debra Davis will introduce us to this special art form that built a small economy and graced the shoulders of European royalty. We are off to the southern steppes of the Ural Mountains!
See the August Newsletter for preparation instructions.
And, please bring any examples you have of completed Orenburg lace projects!
Also - here is a quick heads up for November's KAL.
You will need about 20-25 grams of a multi-color yarn in the same fiber and weight as your main project yarn. And this is key: to get the most visual punch for your knitting effort, the multi should contrast well with your project yarn and NOT contain any of your main color. If your main color is present in your multi, your color-work will just disappear.
