Lucy Neatby Workshop

On April 30th Lucy Neatby joined us in Carrboro- and later in Raleigh- to teach us some of her tricks. There were many Oohs and Ah Hahs about the wealth of knowledge Lucy has about knitting. She is an inspiring teacher as well as entertaining and funny. We hope she will come back!

Lucy has the most interesting hair- Is it pink? is it purple? or blue? She also wears mismatched shoes and earrings. Being around her makes me want to be a little more colorful and perhaps try something new with my knitting.
Everyone enjoyed cupcakes during the break to celebrate my (Mary) birthday. What a great way for me to spend the day! My son, Evan, has the same birthday so we always have fun on April 30th!

Lucy brought many of her colorful creations with her. The work is flawless and you can't help but touch everything.

Her color choices are amazing. She is not afraid to take chances with using lots of colors in each project.

This piece looks like a painting of tiny flowers in a field.

This kitty pillow got a lot of attention.
Everyone loved this baby hat. Can't you just see it on a sweet little baby.
We will have Lucy come back on her next tour through the South. We do have some DVD's and handpainted yarn of hers in stock. We will also be getting more books and patterns of hers when we order at market this Summer.
