Today was my class for knitting back backwards. For my birthday the owner of the shop gave me the class that I wanted to take to learn this technique. The instructor was Candace Eisner Strick from Strickwear.com. I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was to take this class. The technique of knitting (or smoothing back) and purling (or bumping back) in the opposite direction is such a cool technique I really see myself using this all the time. A great time was had by all in the class even though there was no project goal in mind...if you get a chance to learn this technique by all means do it. And if you get the opportunity to take a class from Candace, be sure you do...she's extremely engaging and a true technique goddess! Her color work is amazing.
