Brioche in Savannah--Field Trip Fun!


On Saturday, April 6, I was the lucky guest of the Fiber Guild of the Savannahs. I was able to talk a bit about KnitOasis (aka my biz) with guild members. They asked great questions afterward and there’s nothing that makes a designer feel good about her patterns like having to tell everyone exactly which ones she has brought to show (Reversible Cable Wrap, Dagney Hat, Carousel Hat, Coosaw Cowl, Swirls and Stripes Tote, Aunt Dahlia, Charleston Indigo Scarf, Diamond Ringlet Socks).

Then I taught a brave bunch of knitters how to do some Brioche. They were very determined and patient and I can’t wait to see how their projects turn out. Brioche is one of my top-requested techniques classes, and it’s one of the hardest techniques I teach!


The guild has a studio at the Oatland Island Wildlife Center, filled with looms, spinning wheels, books and supplies. Every year they work with the Oatland Island folks when the sheep need shearing, giving them the softest wool to spin and weave.

It was truly a pleasure to be invited to share the day with these incredibly gifted artists! Special thanks to my friend Wendy from Spinsjal for setting it up!
