    IMG_1745 Our first block printing workshop of the year was, as suspected, a complete blast. Our teacher, Danielle Broder of The Recoverie, knows her craft.

    Kika Knaup led an awesome workshop last week that left several---locals and non-locals---wishing they could have joined us. We decided to pull out our camera and document the process so that anyone could give this easy project a try. Please keep in mind that this tutorial does not teach the basics of knitting---though we have linked to some helpful videos. This tutorial will show you just how simple it is to knit almost anything using fabric strips! Let's get started... Materials: 1/2 to 1 yard of two different fabrics - soft knits recommended scissors or rotary cutter knitting needles size 35 or 50 IMG_1497
