TOPIC: Arctic Lace: Alaska, Musk Oxen & Beyond

Meet Donna Druchunas, the author of Arctic Lace: Knitting Projects & Stories Inspired by Alaska’s Native Knitters in her home state of Vermont.  Cool weather, beautiful scenery in rural small town Vermont. Get away from it all & relax while knitting lace.

We will discuss the tools and yarns used to knit lace, learn how to follow lace charts, and make one swatch in worsted-weight yarn and one in sport-weight yarn. Students will then be ready to knit a lace-weight swatch on their own, and move on to making a simple project such as a lace scarf or hat.
