We have some great news for all you South Florida crochet enthusiasts! Anneke’s Needleworks in Miami will be hosting a 3 hour workshop with Kristin Omdahl, a nationally acclaimed knit and crochet designer, on Sunday May 3rd. The workshop will be held from 12:00 noon until 3:00 pm. Prior to the workshop we will have a little brunch, and after the workshop Kristin will be available for book signing!

"Kristin's designs can be found in major publications including Interweave Crochet Magazine, Crochet Magazine, Vogue Knitting, Knit N Style, Knit 1 and others.  In addition, Kristin's designs are featured in many books including collaborations like the recently released Crochet Me, Vogue Knitting On The Go series and more."

Kristin’s work is featured on the cover of the current Interweave Crochet, Spring Issue. She is also the author of the fabulous book “Wrapped In Crochet: Scarves, Wraps and Shawls.” “With this book you can create stunning crocheted scarves, wraps and shawls using clever stitch motifs, and traditional to innovative shaping. Targeted at beginning to intermediate crocheters, with projects for every budget, these unique pieces invite you to take your crochet to the next level.”

The workshop will be on one of the scarves featured in this book, this beautiful “Blaze” scarf.
