Knit This! Mastering Lace Shawls

Remember in June when I hinted to knitting all lace all the time? Well I am so excited that the on-line class, Knit This!  Mastering Lace Shawls that I developed with Craftsy.com has launched!  I've been wanting to run an on-line class for quite a while and the HD platform that Craftsy has developed lends itself perfectly to teaching knitting!  Want to see?
 

I designed two new patterns for this class Skywalker and Clarus... both top down lace shawls that start over a small number of stitches to give a gentle introduction into the world of knitting lace.  I'll be blogging about both these designs individually later this week when I release them on my website as well. 
Working with the Craftsy team has been a phenomenal learning experience.  I expected to land in their studios anxious and uncomfortable but besides the enormous amounts of makeup they made me wear the time I spent working with them was natural, easy and just plain FUN!  Want to learn more about Craftsy?  Tina just wrote a great post that sums up beautifully what they are doing with their site.
On Set with the "Crew"- Thanks to Emily, Justin, Tom, Joe and Victoria
(not shown but a big thanks to Stefanie and Lisa as well!) 

I do hope that some of you who have been itching to knit lace, and and been stumped by it will consider signing up for the class, you are bound to learn alot, create community with your classmates, AND make two beautiful shawls!

  6. Laura,

    I joined the online course. However, due to the technical difficulties, I cannot see any of the videos. I contacted Crafty about it. The only possible solution right now is to wait for them to produce a DVD for the course. This may take some time.

    But I still want to know how to lace knit, as well as knit the 2 beautiful shawls you designed for the course.

    Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
