Instructor Information: Sivia Harding has been interested fiber art since youth.  Over the years, she had dabbled in weaving, spinning, and dyeing (along with fine art and graphic design), but only learned how to knit in the year 2000.  Almost immediately, she began to design.  She is known mainly for her exceptional lace and bead designs, along with accessories, garments, and imaginative Moebius creations.  She has a reputation as an enthusiastic, warm instructor, and really enjoys the cross-pollination of ideas that happens in a class setting.  She feels she gets the better part of the bargain.  She has been widely published in books and collections, including Jared Flood’s Wool People series, online magazines such as Twist Collective and Knitty, and on Ravelry as Sivia Harding Knit Design. 

Workshop Description: This striped garter stitch scarf features two different kinds of short rows:  one for the little color wedges that flare the short edge, and one for the long rows that go up and around the long edge, creating the ram’s horn shape.  Students will learn about these two methods of short rowing (and why you need two!) while they work up a sample swatch utilizing these techniques.  The class will cover color stripes and all the issues that are encountered such as weaving in ends and carrying yarns as well as lace and beads.  Warning: this scarf is a very addictive knit! 

Materials and Supplies: Lists will be sent out as the workshop approaches.
