Knitting Workshop with LUCY NEATBY

October 24, 2020 @ 1:00 AM 1:30 AM

How often does a beautiful skein of hand-painted yarn knit up to be a disappointment? Discover new ways of knitting with your hand-painted yarns. Look at the styles of variegated yarns and for which purposes they are most suited. Try stranded patterns, slipped stitches, intarsia, bobbles, and assembled knitting. Garment/project planning, how to tackle garments to avoid blotching and mismatching of sections.
Cost $90 plus materials. Maximum 10 participants.
Lucy has been an adventurous knitter since she was 17. She is originally from the UK, where she was a navigating officer in the Merchant Navy. She now lives in Nova Scotia. The Fleece Artist in Halifax, her LYS, gave her the opportunity to teach some classes, and she discovered her passion for sharing the engineering marvels of knitting. She has not stopped spreading the joy of Happy Stitches in the 30 years since, finding ingenious and intriguing ways to expand traditional techniques. She is known for her colorful appearance and her friendly, detailed, technique-rich knitting patterns, and her particular fondness for double-layer knitting. She has written three books; Cool Socks Warm Feet, Cool Knitters Finish in Style, and A Little Book of BIG Holes for Hand-knitters! and has filmed 16 DVD titles. She has five on-line classes with Craftsy.com: Foundations of Double Knitting, My First Socks, Fearless Knitting, Next Steps in Socks, and Sock Knitalong 2016. She also annually offers an unusual knitting camp either on Tancook Island off Nova Scotia or sometimes much further afield. Neatby enjoys trying to dispel the myth that only sedentary, quiet people in rocking chairs knit: she loves cycling, down-hill skiing, quilting, colorful home improvement, and narrow-boating on the historic UK canal system.
