Springtime at YarnCon

It’s spring, which means it must be time for YarnCon, Chicago’s Indie Fiber Fair held April 7 & 8 at Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Union Hall.

Above is my Skinny Mint Tunisian Scarf, featuring some of the stitches covered in my Introduction to Tunisian Crochet Lace class. It’s an intermediate class, but if you take the Beginning Tunisian Crochet class you’ll be good to go for the lace class. Both classes are offered on Saturday and Sunday. You can click the link for more details and to sign up online.

This is my 5th year teaching at YarnCon and I always look forward to teaching and then  checking out the Indie dyers, spinners, and all the fiber vendors in the main hall.

I’ll also be teaching a new workshop on Corner-to-Corner or C2C crochet on Saturday.  Take a new direction and approach your projects on the diagonal, a great way to show off those popular cake yarns.

Shown above, C2C scarf made with one Caron Cake. I can’t wait to try this with one of the beautiful hand dyed cake yarns available at YarnCon.

If you are in the Chicago area check out YarnCon for a fun day of fiber.
