Here's a map of where I'm going; Ulukhaktok. It's waaaay up there; past the arctic circle, and right by the ocean. Amazing.
You may have noticed that in my last post I mentioned a six week program but only gave you the gist of four. The last two weeks are for my students to do whatever projects they desire with me there to mentor and assist. The program is called the Ulukhaktok Handicraft Project. As far as I know it's the first of its kind; accommodating the elderly specifically. These ladies are master craftswomen in other media I'm sure, so I'll certainly be learning a lot from them too.
Knitting projects I have up my sleeve for them are this cabled shawl, this lace shawlette and these mittens to name a few. For the past few weeks I've been knitting instructional samples like crazy.
