Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton has NEWS

Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton has NEWS to share and visited the Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird to tell us all about her FIRST and BRAND-NEW Craftsy Class. It’s very Cornelia's Crafty imagekind of her to take time out to schedule us in, she’s preparing to head to her shop in Sweden for the summer!

Cornelia’s design career began when she sold her first piece to Vogue Knitting in the early 80’s. She had been designing ready-to-wear in New York at that time.

CTHAllcottDeviceCoverNow, she’s multi-tasking with a yarn Line, Heaven’s Hand by Hamilton Yarns, and recently added kits, like the Alcott Laptop/iPad cover, which incorporates texture and her love of color! She’s also been doing a bit of collaborating with Black Bunny Fibers, Carol Sulcoski’s yarn brand, we’ve recently featured on Yarn Thing.

With the New Craftsy Class, Innovative Openwork Scarves, Cornelia can share with us, no mater where she is or our own ability to travel, a unique openwork technique that allows us to knit shapes without cutting your yarn strand. There are many benefits to taking a Craftsy class, among them, that you can take the class on your own schedule, spend as little or as much time as you want, and the classes don’t expire, so you can take it over and over. Marly also mentioned that you can ask questions and the teacher is the one who responds to answer your questions, the classes are so well put together by the teacher and the production crew at Craftsy, there are not a lot of questions to respond to for the teachers. She also says that the students often help other students too, because the answers appear with the class.

Cornelia does still teach classes and offers her yarn in trunk shows, mostly on the East Coast, traveling between Georgia and New York. She is a beloved teacher at the Stitches Events, too, specifically at Stitches West and Stitches South, and Vogue Knitting Live.

It was not mentioned by there is a book that she has contributed to, 50 Garter Stitch Gifts to Knit: The Ultimate Easy-to-Knit Collection Featuring Universal Yarn Deluxe Worsted which was compiled and published by Sixth & Spring just last month. Here is the link in Amazon to peek at, or the page in Ravelry to see the various designs include.

This was not Cornelia’s first visit with the Yarn Thing podcast, she has been a great guest and supporter, offering her time and advice. Her first visit was in November 2009, then again about a year ago and about six months ago to share a recent addition to her yarn line.

Be sure to watch Cornelia’s website: Hamilton Yarns and follow her in Facebook, consider yourself invited to her Ravelry group, Designer and/or Yarn groups.

    Happy knitting to all, and to all a good shawl. Just had to say that. Great podcast as usual. Thanks Marly and Cornelia.

  8. Heather says:

    With Knit in Public Day approaching next week, I think we can all use “Happy Knitting!” wishes. This podcast made me want to look more at some craftsy classes I’ve forgotten I bought! I can’t wait to see what Cornelia comes up with next!

  9. Vicki Lynch says:

    I may need to take the open work Craftsy class. Currently my open work comes from accidentally dropping a stitch or two which doesn’t make for happy knitting. Maybe the class could change this.

  10. Mary Anne says:

    It’s become a highlight of my week to listen to your podcast and it makes me a happy knitting person! (Wanted to let you know I get to knit with Tammy Burke on Thursday evening at our LYS.)

  11. Ida Middendorf says:

    Great show.
    I love her scarves!
    They bring a smile to my face.
    They are what I call happy knitting.

  17. Jen says:

    I did not know Cornelia name when the podcast started. I found that I have three of her designs in my favorists list on Rav. Sometimes the knitting world is very small.

  18. Kate M says:

    Thanks for sharing this new Craftsy class with us. This episode was really interesting. I would love to take this class and expand my knitting skills. Happy Knitting everyone!
