Kaffe Colour

I had a wonderfully busy and colourful few days at Black Sheep Wools last week where they were hosting workshops and a lecture with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably.

It started off on Thursday with a patchwork workshop where everyone planned out their quilts on Kaffe’s flannel grid-wall. The fabric clings to it so you can move things around and play about before doing any sewing. It’s like grown up fuzzy felt!

We had all the lovely new limited edition shades of Handknit Cotton chosen by Kaffe. You can see more and download the patterns here.

On the Thursday evening Black Sheep hosted an inspirational Kaffe colour lecture which included many wonderful images of Kaffes inspiration, knitting design, paintings, needlepoint and more!


We had some classic garments on display from the Kaffe archive, including the beautiful Holly from Rowan Magazine 50. Who else wants to knit this and hang out near some beautiful Acers?!
