Vogue San Fransisco 2018 - The Classes-Double Knitting

In Sept 2018, Vogue Knitting Live was in San Francisco for the first time.   I knew I had to be there.  I live only 55 minutes away and there is no way I'd pass this up.  A few of the local knitting girls were going to be there, either spending the weekend or coming down for the much fun.  We met for lunch or dinner, went to a few mini presentations and roamed the market place.

The Last Class-Double Knitting- creating a fabric that is double sided with the knit stitch on the outside and any image, pattern design fair isle, is reversible.  

It's always so hard to choose a class out all the wonderful offering at Vogue Knitting Live.  Although this was the last class I took, this is the class I want to share first.   Usually after a full weekend of classes, shopping and knitting, that last class can be a blur.   Well not so with this class, Double knitting with Nathan Taylor or better known as the Sockamatician.  Outstanding class, a truly enlightening and entertaining class.   An entertainer, no really he's a British Actor, in the theater.   Lively, eloquent and great attention to deal in his instructions both written and spoken.   This was a great class and I can't wait to begin some of his original double-knit designs.   His first book (my hope is that there are more to come)  Guy's Knit was released at the end of 2018. I knit a hat and my son -in-law, is currently knitting a cap.  Nathan is on Youtube also.
