Things I Learned From Evelyn Clark

I spent this past weekend at a knitting retreat taking a lace design class from Evelyn Clark. She is, in fact, as lovely as you would imagine. Evelyn is also a fountain of knowledge, not just in lace, and one could likely be a learning sponge just by sitting next to her at a meal.

Here are a few other things I learned.

  • Gaia is the new Smooshy.
  • If all else fails, fake it. They will never know.
  • If knitting wasn’t ment to be inventive we would still be knitting the same old patterns.
  • Wraps Per Inch are your friend.

    If you can, locate and purchase a copy of her Knitting Lace Triangles book. It is well written, informative, and above all the charts are all correct, a rarity these days in publishing. Plus it has the BEST calculator for determining what size shawl you can make, something that makes it worth the purchase of the book alone.

      EAC is a favorite designer and one I’ve had a hard time finding information about. Where and how did you find out about her class? I’ve never had a bad experience with her things so I’ll be looking for that book!
