Polish those Knits with me!

So you may have missed me teaching That Polished Knit at Edinburgh Yarn Festival this past March, but all hope is not lost!  I’m teaching another finishing class next month at one of Edinburgh’s newest yarn shops, Be Inspired Fibres.  The class is a half-day from 2-5, on Saturday, 19th October.

I love teaching all sorts of classes, but Finishing is particularly fun because I like to tailor the class to its participants.  This way every student can ensure that they learn something (or several things) that they did not know before.

I used to really loathe things like seaming, blocking or weaving in ends (and those are just the simple finishing tasks!) but now, the finishing stage is actually my favourite part.


 It is when your FO goes from hand-knitted item to gorgeous covet-able heirloom piece.  I cherish that transformation, and love showing students how they can too.

So if you’re interested in the class and have some questions, be sure to get in touch with me (, or if you fancy booking, you can do so immediately!  Online booking and more info on the class is available here; just click to THAT POLISHED KNIT with Kristen Orme.

We can even cover mending in the class

Also in October is an Open Day at the Yarn Pony studio!  The amazing Mica, who has one heck of an eye for colour with her stunning hand-dyed yarns, will be opening her doors to anyone and everyone on Saturday, 12th October.  So that calendar is filling up pretty quickly; may as well be calling it Knictober!
