Aquitaine Cuffs - class with Sivia Harding

What a great class!  Today, I was able to take Sivia Harding's Aquitaine Cuffs class with my friends Ellen and Lucy, and we learned so much!!!  She began the class showing us different kinds of beads that could be used in knit projects, then continued with all the techniques we needed to know.  She even demonstrated other ways that we could add beads to our other projects, and I am so happy I was able to be there!  Some students made more progress than others, and at least one came with the project already started, so was already ahead of the rest of us.  Shortly before the class ended, we were encouraged to walk around to see everyone else's work, and I thought everyone's colors were beautiful, and sometimes combinations of bead colors and yarn were beautiful combinations that I probably wouldn't have thought to use together.  Of course we all have a lot more knitting to go, but we now know what we need to know to finish our cuffs.
