Debby Ware Workshop

KANG hosted a great workshop this weekend with designer Debby Ware of Debby Ware Knitwares. She's the talented lady that designs so many of the cute hat and bootie kits that you find in many of the yarn shops. On Satuday, we spent the day trying out different techniques to design our own caps. She brought lots of her own for us to see, so there was no shortage of inspiration! She also brought cotton yarn in LOTS of colors so we had plenty to choose from. Below you can see my finished Birthday Cake Hat. It's not blocked yet, but I still think it came out pretty cute! The candles are 6-stitch i-cord that is scrunched down on itself, then the flame is a 5-stitch finger. I was going to use a glitzy fuzzy yarn for the flame, but I think I like this better. Sunday, we did baby booties. I'm still not through with those yet, but will post pics later. Everyone had a great time, and I think went away inspired to come up with some interesting designs on their own. Baby things are a great way to try out ideas and colors since they are small and don't take a lot of time. And everything looks good on babies. Right?
