Knit & Crochet Show Part 3
The next class I had was "Design Your Own Stitch Pattern" with Marty Miller. She made us all raise our right hands and take an oath to not tell anyone how to alter stitch existing stitch patterns to make our own, so I can't tell you how to do it, but I will say that I cam up with a few new stitch patterns that I really like. I will probably use them in future patterns.
My third class was "Fine Shaping in Stitch Patterning" with Lily Chin. This class was really great and has already proven very helpful in designing. Lily also taught a class on pattern draping during Professional Development Day that was very helpful and insightful. I enjoyed getting to know Lily a little bit during these classes and during events. She has a sarcastic sense of humor that I appreciate. That sarcastic humor is definitely something that I grew up with in my family.
On Saturday there was a meet & greet between designers and editors. I was VERY nervous about this. It was, for me, the most anticipated part of the conference. I was very hopeful that this would help me get my foot in the door to more publishing opportunities. I can't share specific details, but I will say that I was very pleased with how the meet & greet went. I look forward to sharing the details as I am able.
