I’m forever blowing bubbles… in Hot Springs – Singing and Knitting in the Historic Hale Bathhouse

April 7, 2011

This April, I have the great pleasure of bringing together 2 of my careers (who only has one career nowadays?).  The Muses, based out of The Hale BathHouse in Hot Springs, Arkansas, has invited me to give a couple of concerts and also to teach a lace knitting masterclass. The clicking of needles one day and then sound of clapping hands the next… and they saydiamonds are a girl’s best friend…  😉

UNVEILING THE ANATOMY OF THE STITCH LACE KNITTING MASTER CLASS  WITH LISA DAEHLIN THE HALE BATHHOUSE MUSES' THREE ARTS CAFÉ 341 CENTRAL AVENUE HOT SPRINGS A SAMPLING OF LACE KNITTING: TRIANGLE, RECTANGLE, IN THE ROUND  Thursday, April 14th 2011; 1-4pm; $50.00  Join us for an afternoon filled with the beauty of lace knitting as we explore this artful craft. Dissect seemingly complex lace patterns into their simple components. Using the elegant technique of yarn-over increases paired with decreases, learn a sampling of lace patterns and the structure of different shapes - triangle, rectangle, in the round - which can be used to create a lace shawl, pillow, coverlet, etc. Discover various ways to incorporate beads into a design.   While the afternoon will focus mostly on lace, we will cover other topics (short-row shaping, colorwork, etc.) depending on time available and individual requests of the participants.  PREREQ: know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind-off. Familiarity with double-pointed needles is helpful but not required. SUPPLIES: knitting needles (size 6 or 7, set 4 or 5 double-points), yarn (dk or worsted weight, light color, non-fuzzy, one ball).  INSTRUCTOR:  Lisa Daehlin is a knitting designer and opera singer. A continuing education faculty member at Cooper Union, she has the distinction of being their first-ever teacher of knitting and crochet courses.  A sought-after designer of knitted and crocheted fabrics and objects, she free-lances for the fashion industry and retail design.  Her designs can be seen walking the streets of Manhattan, on the pages of Interweave Knits, Knit 1, Vogue Knitting Magazines as well as featured in the Lace Style and Bag Style books published by Interweave Press.
