As part of the exhibit, Karen gathered knitters together on Saturday and taught us
Karen's knitted nests are beautiful, each one a different shape and color.
Naturally, because we were a group of knitters, we had to see the had knits everyone was wearing. Sara Brand-New was wearing a gorgeous roomy cabled sweater which is the first sweater she ever knit, plus a skirt knit from a pattern she found at Yarns in the Farms in Beverly, Massachusetts. You can see the pattern on their website.
Adorable! And she is knitting it, below, in a larger size - from the bottom up.
Above is Astrig Tanguay, of mid-coast Maine's Fiber College. The vest is knit from a fleece she spun.
Karen's daughter Roxanne was there! In a reverse of the usual way of things in knitting, Roxanne taught her mother to knit several years ago.
We were all busy making nests...
And wearing our beautiful hand knits.
