Cool Knitters Finish in Style
Finishing gets bad press, but if a few basic skills are mastered and the right frame of mind is adopted it’s possible to make this vital stage of our projects very satisfying. Lucy will share her finishing strategies and take your questions.
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 has lived in Nova Scotia for the last 29 years. The Fleece Artist in Halifax gave her the opportunity to teach classes, and she discovered her passion for sharing the engineering marvels of knitting. She has not stopped spreading the joy of Happy Stitches since!
She is known almost as much for her taste in colour as for 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 classes on Craftsy.com: Foundations of Double Knitting, My First Socks, Next Steps in Socks, Fearless Knitting and the free Sock of Month series for 2016.
She also occasionally offers an unusual knitting camp on Big Tancook Island (where she now lives), or sometimes much further afield. Lucy enjoys trying to dispel the myth that only sedentary, quiet people in rocking chairs knit: she loves cycling, downhill skiing, sailing, quilting, colourful home improvement and narrow-boating on the historic UK canal system.
You can find Lucy on Ravelry, Instagram, and on her Lucyknit YouTube channel and her patterns and virtual DVDs are now available from Little Barn Studio (LittleBarnStudio.ca) only.
