You may have heard – since I’ve practically been shouting it from the rooftops – that I’m teaching classes online for the fab crew at Creative Bug. I feel so honored to have a place among teachers & makers I really respect like Cal Patch, Rebecca Ringquist, Diana Fayt ... I could go on forever!
Here's a sweet video they made to introduce yours truly to the world. It feels extra special because the music for it it is done by Richard Buckner (how lucky am I?!)
It has been super fun working with Creative Bug and I’m excited for even more classes to launch. As of now, you can Learn to Knit – English & Continental style, or for those who have the basics down; take an Intro to Lace class with me and learn to make a Little Something...
Today a new class launches and it‘s one of my favorite techniques to both knit and teach, double knitting.
Double Knit Sprout Cowl with Jill Draper on Creativebug from Creativebug on Vimeo.
Double knitting is way to make a reversible fabric with stockinette on both sides and because of the way it’s made, colorwork is a breeze with no ends to weave in and no floats on the “wrong side”. I’ve been teaching this class in person and LOVE seeing the finished cowls, I can’t wait to see what color combinations my online students pick! You can check out some lovely finished cowls on Ravelry.
To celebrate the newest class launch, Creative Bug has agreed to generously give away a 3 month subscription and I'm sweetening the pot a little by including some Jill Draper Makes Stuff yarn for whichever class of mine you decide to take first!
Just leave a comment below with which class you would love to take and why and then go here and enter your email address. Easy, right?!
