Meet a Knitting Star

Learn from nationally recognized knitting teacher and technique expert Patty Lyons at The Yarn Stop University May 17-19. Lyons is known for teaching the “why” not just the “how” in her pursuit of training the “mindful knitter.” She specializes in sweater design and sharing her love of the much-maligned subjects of gauge and blocking. Her designs and knitting skill articles have been published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Knit Purl, Knitter’s Magazine, Cast On, Knit Style, Creative Knitting, Twist Collective, and Mason Dixon Knitting where she writes a monthly knitter’s advice column: “Ask Patty.”  On Friday, May 17, from 7 to 8:30 pm, there will be a Meet and Greet with Lyons. Admission is a $5 donation, which will go to support Knit Michigan, which creates chemo caps and other patient comfort items for cancer patients.
