Description

Just when you think you know everything about traditional sock knitting, another little-known tradition shows up to expand your boundaries. Donna Druchunas looked for information on the knitting of her Lithuanian forebears for years, and finally visited the country to learn what she could. What she learned turned out to be a lot!

In this workshop, you will learn:

The role of Lithuania in Fair Isle knitting

  • The evolution of motifs throughout the Baltic states
  • The connection of Lithuanian pattern knitting to linen weaving
  • And not least, several clever heel shaping techniques

Join Donna as she tells of her odyssey and the sleuthing and speculating that led her to a deep understanding of Lithuanian knitting and its place in contemporary culture. Then challenge yourself to knit any or all of the three exceptional sock patterns she has included on PDFs within this DVD.
