Pacifically Passap 2007 Machine Knitting Seminar
I’m back home from Pacifically Passap and my head is still spinning from all the info I tried to cram inside.
Thank goodness The Notebook can refresh my memory.
Now I’ve been to several Machine Knitting Seminars before, just not any dedicated to the Passap. The book they produce is simply fantastic. I’m not talking about assorted handouts merely summarizing what would be taught, or class outlines, or even a paragraph or two with a few simple examples. No dear knitters, imagine a book almost half an inch thick, pages printed duplex, where every teacher provides detailed step-by-step notes for every class taught.
Every. Single. One.
I’m talking notes so thorough, many with illustrations or figures, that if you can’t decide between two courses offered at the same time, you can look at the corresponding pages, determine which one you’d be most successful learning on your own, and attend the other. Occasionally I’d go to one class while a friend went to another and we plan to swap info later on.
I love The Notebook!
Memo to self: You know that square do-hickey thing you’ve been using as an awkward yarn holder near the top of your DM 80 yarn mast? It isn’t a strange square do-hickey thing after all – it’s a pattern holder. You saw it being used correctly during Billie Hall’s sock class. If you hadn’t installed it backwards over a year ago you would have had a place to hang your notes rather than placing them on the floor by your feet. Kind of hard to read directions when the pattern is so far away.
