I'd done some fairisle and intarsia but the newly-discovered designs were over the top and I jumped right in. No one told me that it was going to be difficult to knit them, and so it wasn't. I've knit several designs from these two designers, as well as others on the Rowan team and there are many more in my queue.
For the class we worked on making our own variegated yarns by tying lengths together and knitting from the poppies graph. We all brought yarns from our stash and shared. At the end, Brandon critiqued our work:

Near the end of the class Kaffe came into the store and sat down at the table at the back and worked on a design.
I have to admit that it was a unique feeling to be knitting away and to looked over and there was Kaffe Fassett knitting away, too. He's been an inspiration to me for decades.
A number of garments were brought to the class and I'll post pictures of them in the coming days.
