Anne Hanson Class photos & such

 Wow – really, that’s what I have to say about this past weekend with Anne Hanson.  It was so much fun – every minute of every class.   Anne has a wonderful, relaxed attitude, and so much knowledge that she presents in a really easy and accessible way.  Throughout the weekend, she shared so much with us--from her journey to knitwear designer to individual designs and their inspiration.  Tons of swatches show just how thoroughly she evaluates every aspect of the yarn she chooses for a design and how iterative a process it is it find a good match between yarn and project and colorway.  This visual demonstration of her thought process was so instructive.  It also showed many of us that the yarns and colors that jump off the shelf at us are often not the yarn that will most suit your pattern over the long haul. Hence the importance of the swatch - different needle size is just the beginning! More on that later, but for now, here are some fun pictures from Friday night.
