Meet Lynne Barr this Saturday, December 1

storefront1.jpgIf you're planning on being anywhere in or around Portland, Maine, on Saturday, I hope you'll stop by the KnitWit Yarn Shop and Cafe between noon and 2. Lynne Barr, author of Knitting New Scarves, will be there demonstrating some of the unconventional techniques she used to make the scarves in her book. She will have finished scarves to show as well Linked Rib, Twisted, and Drifting Pleats (shown below, left to right, and the in the gallery here) as WIP's so that knitters can try working on them--with her guidance--if they wish.

I've been to Portland only once, but I made sure to visit the KnitWit yarn shop - it was a pleasure! Such a nice place! I think Lynne will enjoy visiting it.
