Knitting Cruise

Forgive my shameless plug for my cruise; but I'm really excited and it will be a very thorough class on learning about lace.

Some points we will cover:

In this class the student will explore lace construction.  We will:

  • break down a pattern and examine the results from different elements of design: decreases, increases, bias and negative and positive space
  • learn about the different tools that are used in lace creation and why they are important
  • learn why natural fibers are the best yarns to use for lace and how to block them so their projects will bloom
  • look at samples of lace and swatches to create a better understanding of lace and how it works
  • learn casting on and binding off techniques
  • learn how to fix mistakes and read knitting
  • look at different ways that lace shawls can be knit
  • create a lace shawlette using all the above knowledge
  • empower the knitter to feel comfortable exploring the world of lace

Join me in the Summer of 2014 on the Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas for 7 nights in the Western Caribbean in exotic ports of call.  Book early for great rates; instruction, yarn, needles and pattern are included.

If you are interested; please contact Donna.  She is the masterful travel agent behind this voyage and a very good friend of mine.  She will take good care of you.  See you there!
