Lucy Neatby

This past week was the Knitters' Guild Meeting. We had a special guest visit with us .... Lucy Neatby!!!

She was such an interesting person. She had a slide show of her various works and designs and narrated through it, what she was thinking at the time, what inspired the design, and a little bit about her life at that period. It was really fantastic!

There were several of her designs knitted up on display to look at.

I didn't realize that she had instructional videos out. She showed us two techniques that are things on her DVDs and they were amazing. One was a special way to bind off loosely and the other was Navajo knitting - like plying, but to knit with your yarn tripled and keep the color repeat.
