Lucy Neatby Workshop

Sea Lettuce Scarf by Lucy Neatby

Knitted Samples by Lucy Neatby
 Amazing! I never understood Lucy Neatby's knitting before, but after taking her workshop I am just blown away. Her work is fabulous, and truly genius. I took a class to make a Venus Rising cardigan. The construction was so different, and produced a lovely sweater with many, many possibilities for variety and fit. She has a fearless sense of color, and combines them beautifully. The samples she brought to the workshop were so gorgeous, photographs do not do them justice.

Construction explained. Got it? Good. Try it!

Lucy's Cat's Pajamas yarn, did I mention cashmere?

I first saw Lucy in person at Sock Summit, she was hard to miss with her pink hair! She was so sweet, and patient, and after her ordeal at UK Knit Camp in Scotland, beyond generous.
If you ever have the chance to take a class with Lucy, I cannot recommend it enough. You will learn so much, and even though her videos and books are quite comprehensive, nothing compares with having her right there in front of you.
Thanks Lucy!

The pink hair reminds me of "Educating Rits". Did you ever watch that? Such wonderful knitted objects! You sound inspired.
