Once that’s done you’ll be able to experience the KnittingTours website perfectly.
Carol Feller is a very popular knitwear designer, teacher and author of several knitting books, as well as having her own range of yarn! She has been teaching for KnittingTours.com from the very beginning and our knitters LOVE her classes!
Carol lives in the south of Ireland. As with many Irish children she learned to knit while still in primary school and spent many years knitting cardigans for her dolls and occasionally herself! There is a strong history of crafting in her family; her mother sewed much of her clothes, her grandmother was an expert knitter and her aunt ran a knitting shop in Dublin.
Trained initially as a textile artist, Carol then trained as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit. She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.
Carol has been widely published in books and magazines; you’ll find her work in Interweave Knits, The Knitter, Twist Collective, Brooklyn Tweed and Knitty to name just a few. She has published 5 books; Contemporary Irish Knits, Short Row Knits, Scrumptious Knits, Among Stones, Dovestone Hills and Knitting with Rainbows. You can find all her books as well as individual pdf pattern downloads on her website www.stolenstitches.com. You can also find her own yarn line, Nua, on her website.
Carol has travelled the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals, including Knit Nation in London, Edinburgh Yarn Festival and Unwind. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you’ll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.
As well as teaching in-person classes Carol Feller also teaches knitting classes online at Craftsy.com. These classes include, Celtic Cables, Essential Short Row Technique and Sweater Surgery. These classes can form a nice complement to in-person classes as you can use them to extend your knitting knowledge further.
I have been teaching knitting classes for KnittingTours.com for the last several years and they’re a dream to work with. All details are handled seamlessly and thoughtfully. I usually teach close to the end of the tour and the knitters who are on the tour have nothing but good things to say about the tour, tour guide and itineraries. The tours are a perfect mix between events, classes and downtime, very well paced and most importantly any issues that arise are dealt with immediately without any fuss!
