Myrna Stahman will be our guest speaker with a presentation on lace knitting. Myrna lives in Boise, Idaho with her husband Bob and enjoys sharing her love of lace knitting by designing shawls and scarves, teaching lace knitting classes and publishing her designs. Her definition of lace knitting is using two sticks and some string to connect a series of holes in a pleasing fashion. Lace knitting does not require 000 needles and very fine thread. Worsted weight cotton and size 7 needles make practical, pretty lace dishcloths. Bulky yarn and size 11 needles produce beautiful lacy afghans.
In addition to a general discussion of lace knitting, Myrna will share some of her adventures while working on her next book: Adventures in Circular Lace Knitting - A Window Into the Designs Published by Christine Duchrow. She will also do some show and tell with items that will be in the book. If time permits, she will also talk just a bit about Dreaming of Shetland, the e-book supporting Deb Robson's research into the Shetland breed of sheep, and will bring samples of two of the designs that will be in that book - a stole and a Faroese-shaped shawl. Join us for this fun and informative presentation.
