The wonderful owners, Jeff and Leslie, of Autumn Mist Alpaca Farm and Fiber Mill, will be here from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, November 22 (Saturday before Thanksgiving) with their locally produced yarn, fiber, and rug bumps. Jeff and Leslie process alpaca fiber from all over the country but mostly New York state. Please come see, feel, and purchase their lovely alpaca yarn and fiber, and learn how they are made!

Steeking is a short cut (literally) for making large projects like sweaters. The entire piece is first knitted in the round without interruptions or openings. After the tube is completed, you cut into the fabric for armholes, necklines, and front openings. Sleeves are then attached.
Intrigued? This workshop aims to make this technique less intimidating. Susan will also show you how to modify back-and-forth Fair Isle patterns for steeking. Bring a Fair Isle pattern of your choice and prepare to be amazed!!
You’ll need to bring to class wool or wool blend in sport or light worsted weight in a few contrasting colors with appropriately sized DPNs or circular needles. We’re always happy to help you select yarn for a project (such as the “Izmir” cardigan on the right) that’s best suited for steeking.
