The Lisa M. Barnes classes this January are starting to fill up. I'm so proud to be able to offer you the opportunity to take these classes, many of which are not offered anywhere else! One of the classes Lisa is teaching in January is Mosaic knitting. It's a great technique, and I'm super excited about it, but I know many of you are wondering, what the heck is Mosaic Knitting, and why would I want to learn it? Like many of you, I am a product knitter. Yes, I love the process of knitting, and I love learning new techniques, but if there isn't a sufficiently compelling project at the end of the effort, my motivation is a little weak. So let me first show you all the beautiful things made with mosaic knitting technique.
Looks awesome and complicated, doesn't it! Mosaic Knitting is awesome, but not nearly as complicated as it looks. With Mosaic Knitting, you only work one color at a time in any row, so you get the look of beautiful stranded knitting without any of the fiddly fuss. It's a great technique that allows you to create spectacular projects that are fun to knit and very impressive - even to other knitters!
Everyone loves crescent shaped shawls - they're modern, on trend and flattering to wear. Lisa's Design Your Own Crescent Shaped Shawl class, is a wonderful and unusual class you'll benefit from, even if you're not interested in designing your own shawl. In this class you'll gain an understanding of the construction of this flattering shawl shape so that you can adjust any shawl pattern to suit your preferences. Want to make it wider or deeper? This class will show you how. Once you understand how, you'll quickly find that you're ready to create your own beautiful design in this class. Choose any edging you like - from a simple ruffle to a complicated lace - and make it any kind of crescent you want. And when someone comments on your beautiful shawl, you can tell them not only did you knit it, but you designed it yourself!
