The Secret World of Stitches 
A rather wonderful sneak peek into the way Lucy sees her stitches. You will learn how her approach to knitting, teaching, yarns and colour has developed over the years. We’ll take a look at how designs evolve and the challenges of filming, writing, teaching and traveling in the knitting world.

You can register for that class here.

In her own words:
“I’ve been knitting of my own volition since I was 17. I’m a technical knitter, I love to find out why things work. My approach to design is heavily influenced by whatever technique is currently absorbing me. My designs and patterns are almost technique samplers aimed at introducing a variety of skills within a project. I love to teach knitting skills and to enhance knitters’ understanding of yarn and stitch structure.

Making your stitches smile is all important to me!”
- Lucy
