Chrysanthemum, inspired by Zheng Yi Sao
Queen of Salsa: Zheng Yi Sao was one of the most successful pirates in history (and for sure the most successful female pirate), active in the South China Sea in the early 1800s. To honor Zheng Yi Sao, we created the Chrysanthemum colorway. The chrysanthemum is a very important flower in the Chinese culture, having been honored and cultivated since hundreds of years BCE. In fact, there are over 20,000 cultivars in China!

What is the Knitting Academy? It is a program developed to help you take your knitting to the next level. You will learn new skills; ways to perfect your technique and finished objects; build your confidence to tackle more challenging projects or simply get your knit-spiration on. In the Knitting Academy, we will cover topics that will improve and enrich your knitting. Your Academy professor is Jenna. With more than 30 years knitting experience she loves to encourage others to be creative with fiber. Her goal is to release more fearless knitters into the world. How it works: each session in The Knitting Academy is intended to be a standalone session so if every session is not for you, just pick and choose the ones that interest you the most. Each session is held on the 2nd Sunday of every month from 11 am to noon. (Dates and times, particularly those farther out, are subject to change).
Cost: $ 25.00
