Education Director Gretchen Fancher invites you to join us to meet Margaret Radcliffe at the LBY Studio!
Margaret Radcliffe’s new book, The Knowledgeable Knitter—Understand the Inner Workings of Knitting and Make Every Project a Success is now available at the Studio! Beautifully illustrated and loaded with wisdom from her many years of teaching and designing, this book is sure to become an indispensible reference for novices and experienced knitters alike. From choosing yarn and pattern, selecting which size to knit, to shaping and finishing techniques, Margaret Radcliffe has covered it all.
But it’s not just a “how to do this” book, she also explains “why do we do it that way.” As a knitting teacher myself, I often have students ask why things are done one way as opposed to another. I myself am a curious knitter and find myself asking “where did this technique come from” and “what happens if I do this that way?” Clearly Margaret is too, and has knitted up all the alternatives and photographed them. So if you are wondering how to incorporate shaping in a sweater with textured, ribbed, cabled or lace fabric, knitted either flat or in the round it’s in here, with photos. Bust darts, sleeve caps (and how to adjust them) steeks, fixing mistakes. The amount of information packed into this book is truly impressive!
Wherever you are in your knitting journey, The Knowledgeable Knitter will help you to “set your own standard of excellence, pursue it, and find satisfaction in its achievement.” (page 255)
Come meet Margaret Radcliffe on Thursday December 11 at 6PM! You can pick up a copy of the book in the Studio* and Margaret will be here to sign it and answer your questions.
