Lorna Miser, knitwear designer and author and former owner of Lorna’s Laces, is in Indiana right now and is available to teach a special class at Knitting Today this Saturday, November 1, from 1-4. It is going to be a class I had to leave out of the retreat offerings: Design for Baby, Knit for Baby. But don’t let the title fool you as the project can server as a sampler for a larger sweater too. Lorna will be talking about using inspiration and ideas for the design from “found” items such as scrapbook paper. Working from a generic cardigan shape sweater for baby through toddler, and your choice of yarn, you can start knitting right in class as well as have many ideas for future projects. Cost is $30 for the 3 hours session, a bargain considering that the same class goes for $80 at Stitches which is where she’s headed. Lorna also has designs and inspiration for the Stitches classes and if time allows, we’ll have show/tell. Please reply or call immediately if you are able to attend as class size is limited to 8.
Since we’re putting this together on the fly based on a quick telephone call, and I need to get to the girls parent/teacher conferences, I’m sending this out subject to Lorna’s approval. If we need to make changes, I’ll let you know when confirming your registration. I’m so excited since every time I spend time with Lorna I learn a lot about design and knit structure, not to mention its just plain fun! If you have a friend to share with, please feel free to do so. If more than 8 sign up, I’ll try and move the class to
a larger space. Hope you can make it! Lea-Ann
