So a while back I went to Denver, craft beer capital of the world, and home to quite possibly the happiest place on Earth (hint: Disneyland is not it), Fancy Tiger Crafts. I got to do a Trunk Show with the wonderful knitters of Denver, and attend Craft Night there and the place instantly felt like home! So much so that I basically took no photos at all. So instead I will send you to Felicia’s Blog, where she has photos. I’m really excited to be heading back to Fancy Tiger in October to teach and spend more time with the lovely people of Denver, but the MAIN reason I went to Denver was to film a class.

So here’s the pitch:
Lace shawls are beautiful and versatile accessories that add elegance and style to your wardrobe. Creating your own unique, custom-made piece takes the beauty of lace one step further. I’m Miriam Felton, and in my new online Craftsy class, Lace Shawl Design, I will teach you step-by-step what you need to know to design your own unique knitted lace shawl. You can use this information to create your own lace designs, adapt existing patterns to fit your style, or even to make something that’s completely your own. Conquer your fears and begin knitting lace!
Lace certainly can be intimidating to knit and to design, but because Craftsy classes are fully interactive it’s like I’m right there knitting with you. As you navigate through the class ask me (and your classmates) questions to get advice, help, and insight on trouble spots. Your registration never expires, so you can watch this class whenever you want, however many times you want. If for any reason you’re not totally in love with this class, Craftsy will refund your money, with no questions asked.
Whether you’re looking for a fabulous introduction to lace knitting, easy tips and tricks to adapt your favorite lace patterns, or step-by-step instruction to create your own unique lace shawl design, this is the class for you. Dive in and sign up for Lace Shawl Design to learn all this and more!
Aside from the official language, I am really proud of this class. It has such an amazing depth of information that I think knitters of all skill levels would benefit from taking it. Even if you never plan to design your own lace shawl, the info included in this class would be helpful to you in any knitting scenario, but especially with lace knitting. I’m a big proponent that the key to fearless knitting is understanding how it works. When you take the mystery of stitch interaction away, you’re left with confident knitters who can focus on the magic of the act instead of worrying about whether they will screw something up.
Take a look, let me know if you’ve got any questions, and please consider taking the class.
p.s. I’m working on a blog tour, so if you’d like to be a stop on the tour, drop me a line and we’ll see what we can work out.
