Heavy/Warm Shawl Workshop with Galina Khmeleva at The Yarn and Fiber Company!
Join in the fun! There is something to be gained in this class by everyone! New lace knitters can easily break into working on gorgeous lace shawls through Galina’s expertise and expert lace knitters will enjoy the new techniques and tips / tricks they will gather during the class that come straight from the Russian Orenburg lace knitter community. Everyone leaves as a more experienced lace knitter with a beautiful shawl underway. Come and enjoy the weekend with us!

Workshop Description and Details:
Knit a luxurious heavy/warm shawl the unique Orenburg way from Galina A. Khmeleva, author of Gossamer Webs, The History and Techniques of Orenburg Lace Shawls and Gossamer Webs, The Design Collection. The construction of the classic warm shawl uses an entirely different knitting technique from that of its close, lacey relative. This spectacular “cousin” to the elegant, traditional Orenburg gossamer lace shawl made famous by Russian babushkas, will make a superb throw, baby blanket or comforter.
