Nantucket Throw Blanket with Loopy Mango and Claudia Knoglinger Nov 8/15

365.00

Ready to create a cozy blanket that will keep you warm this winter  while you sip your tea, or canoodle with your honey? Even if you haven't tried knitting before you will be able to knit this blanket over two sessions. In the first session you will learn how to cast on and begin to knit at least a third of the blanket. Over the next week you can continue your throw and the following session Claudia will show you how to cast off and complete your Nantucket blanket.  Extra wool can be purchased separately at the workshop  if you wish to knit more pieces.

Claudia Knoglinger will be coming in to teach the knitting.  A few years ago Claudia got her hands on this beautiful Peruvian highland wool and a novice knitter was born. She has been making blankets and shawls for a few years and recently started using Loopy Mango's most luxurious Merino Wool and now there is no return. You will be hooked because you can't beat the texture and softness of this product.

Claudia studied Fashion Design and Marketing at the Art Institute of Seattle and opened her first store Rebel Rebel (now Reunion) in 2001, where she sold her eco conscious label La Poeme. A few years later, in 2008, she continued with her passion for beautifully designed clothing and accessories with the designer boutique Bernstein & Gold, where we carry prominent designer label from Europe, Canada and the USA.
