Habu's Takako comes to Knitch!

Nell and Takako

We had the great pleasure and treat of a visit from Takako of Habu Textiles fame. She taught two sold-out workshops on Wednesday to knitters eager to learn the tricks of reading Japanese knitting patterns (not so hard, really, once you know the drill!) as well as ways of tailoring the garments to fit well. She brought along lots of treasures for her trunk show too.

Attendees got to see and try on garments made from Takako's brilliant patterns and fibers as well as other designers' takes on what to do with the amazing yarns that come from Habu. How we love them!

Takako held the rapt attention of all the knitters with her whimsical smile and astute understanding of how best to show off the Habu fibers. Thanks for visiting Knitch Takako! We can't wait to see you again.
