I took knitting lace shawl class at the IOLI convention. Taught by Kelli Slack.
I learned so much! Kelli provided pattern & an awesome booklet - full of information needed to make a lace shawl.
I'm using us4 needles, Simple Sock, Lilliput Yarn, color Sasha.
Practice pieces pictured above & below. Kelli brought yarn from her store, for us to use as practice. That was so very helpful to me! Her pattern is written out and in chart form. I focused on the chart - just wanted to learn how to interpret knitting charts (in general).(teal color yarn is Tonos Carnival sock - Misty Alpaca. http://www.mistialpaca.com/yarns/collection/tonos-carnaval/).
This is a photograph of a completed shawlette - notice the waves?
Purchased Kelli's sock book - there are some charming patterns here ; )
purchased some xtra Lilliput yarn and project bags from the Black Sheep at Orenco vendor booth.yes, also gave one to our daughter (who has 2 kittys).
Above, flash drive and hand made paper give to participants at the Fri dinner. Photos below (back and front of charm) - IOLI charm for convention/committee participants.
Next year, Convention will be near Philadelphia at King of Prussia, PA. Stay tuned to IOLI web site and Liberty Lacers web sites.
