Tracie took a class on knitting with beads with Betsy Hershberg , author of Betsy Beads: Confessions of a Left-Brained Knitter

Tracie and Barb both really missed Blue Moon Fiber Arts (because we wanted some Woobu and possibly some BFL Sport too) and Tess Designer Yarns (because we like to grope the Kitten and exclaim over their beautiful colors), who were not at Stitches this year :-(

Barb took a class on knitting socks in different stitch patterns with JC Briar, author of Charts Made Simple

Tracie took a class of special techniques with Anna Zilboorg, author of Magnificent Mittens and Knitting For Anarchists
