creative knitters

I got to meet Lisa Ann Auerbach at Amano this weekend ("Bad Girl Night"). She showed us her work in a power point presentation. What a kick, she is so creative and a huge body of work. She knits on a knitting machine an does the same style of sweater with different designs and "words" statements, mostly controversial political opinions. We all had a great time, lots of great food & drink and a little bit of knitting.

I'm getting ready to teach "Short Rows: the long version" lots of short row methods and how to apply them in your projects. Thursday 6-8pm at Amano Yarn Center. ... I love short row shaping so does Hanne Falkenberg here is an example of a short rowed sweater I knit

But why? Because she had to.

Glad you got to meet Lisa at A Mano. She's coming to our field trip at the Hammer Museum on April 18th! I hope you can attend. We'll meet in the courtyard at noon...sit, knit, snack. At 1pm we'll walk upstairs to the Gallery, see all of Lisa's incredible work and ask her questions about the pieces. It should be a great day!
