The Guild was delighted to welcome Anniken Allis as our guest speaker this month. Anniken is well known as a knitwear designer and teacher and she is the author of 'Beaded Lace Knitting'. Her talk was fun, engaging and informative and she managed to cope with some rather odd off-piste conversations, including a lively debate about Cornish versus Devonshire Cream Teas and the vital "cream-first or jam-first?" question! Entirely Anniken's fault, of course ... she told us that her Cornwall retreats kick off with cream teas!
However, we mostly behaved ourselves and Anniken rewarded us by giving us some practical tips on how to use the patterns in 'Beaded Lace Knitting' and on lace knitting in general ... click here.
An article on Anniken's visit and talk will be published in our next newsletter.
In honour of Anniken's visit, various members of the Guild knitted swatches from some of the lovely designs in 'Beaded Lace Knitting':
