Arne & Carlos Workshop

Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to take a workshop from Arne and Carlos.  I have to say, these guys are down to earth and fun.  They have been on the go and giving workshops and lectures in North America since June of this year.  If I'd been touring that long I'd be exhausted, but these fellas are full of pep and wonderful stories about knitting and their travels.

The workshop I took was Knitting and Purling the Norwegian Way and was held at Wool'n Things in Orleans, Ontario.  Arne and Carlos explained how this method of knitting was done and then taught us in groups of 3 or 4 and gave individual attention to participants.  I have now learned a new way to knit and with a bit of practice, feel I will conquer it.  

The gents were very personable and graciously signed my Christmas Balls book.  By the way, this is a great book of patterns for knitting Christmas Balls which make great gifts.  I've made about 30 in the past year.  (God jul means Merry Christmas in Norwegian)

They were very kind to pose with the participants for selfies as well.

If you ever have a chance to take a workshop from Arne and Carlos be sure to do so.  If you can't, then certainly watch their YouTube channel or have a look at their website where there's lots to see and learn.

Tusen takk
