Patty Lyons: Oops, I Accidentally Knit a Dress: Tales of Lies, Denial and Heartbreak
It’s happened to all of us. We don’t get what we expect; we don’t get what we dreamed of. We feel let down, we feel tricked, and we feel lied to . . . by our gauge swatch. Find out how to make your gauge swatch tell you the truth. In this funny and informative visual presentation Patty Lyons will take us from gauge tragedy to triumph. Never be a gauge victim again!
Patty Lyons is a nationally recognized knitting teacher and technique expert who is known for teaching the “why”–not just the “how.” She specializes in sweater design and sharing her love of the much-maligned subjects of gauge and blocking.
Patty teaches at guilds and knitting shows around the country, and her popular classes can also be found online at Interweave, Annie’s and Craftsy, where her “Improve Your Knitting Class” was named Craftsy’s most popular class of 2013. Patty is excited about her newest DVDs with Interweave: “Knitting Bag of Tricks,” “Advanced Fixes in Knitting” and “An Introduction to Color Knitting.”
Patty’s designs and knitting skill articles have been widely published in knitting magazines, and her designs have also been included in pattern collections from Classic Elite, Noro, Cascade, Tahki Stacy Charles and Kollage Yarns.
