I was the lucky winner of a KnitFit class this year! I attended my class and the marketplace yesterday, and it was a pretty great experience.
I took a class on repurposing thrifted sweaters for the yarn. It was a great introduction to the process. As a part of the class, we got to work on deconstructing a sweater. It is a lot of work, but I love the idea of giving new life to a discarded sweater.
After my class, I went to the marketplace. It was small, but it emphasized local producers, which I love. I went in with a mission: to buy fiber from Spincycle Yarns. Mission accomplished! I was pretty well-behaved at the market, so apart from a tote bag, I just got fibre.
