Clever Knitters,

Have you ever dreamed of becoming a famous knitwear designer? Or do you simply want to knit a sweater and be confident that it will fit whether you’re using a commercial pattern or designing your own.  Have you seen Shirley Paden's new book, KNITWEAR DESIGN WORKSHOP: A Comprehensive Guide to Handknits? It's like a graduate school course in design. A master's level workshop. 

But Shirley wasn't born a brilliant designer. Eighteen years ago she taught herself design and one of her most important resources was Cheryl Brunette's Sweater 101. Here's what Shirley recently wrote to Cheryl:

"I cannot tell you how much your little book and formula contributed to my understanding of designing hand knits.  The formula opened a whole new world for me in terms of being able to more accurately plan my designs.  Because I am completely self taught, I have purchased and carefully studied many books over the years.  Yours was a real treasure in a simple package. Many of us owe you a huge Thank You for your contribution to advancing the craft...

I am so glad to hear that you decided to put Sweater 101 back in print.  I am sure that many new designers will find it as helpful as I did...

The formula that I found in your little book changed my professional life!  The book itself is a wonderful design review in an easy to follow format."

You may not recognize Cheryl Brunette's name because she retired from the knitting world almost 20 years ago, long before the internet, but she taught many of the people who are teaching now. She's "Oldie but Goodie," on Ravelry and people who have been around a long time know her work.

When Meg Swansen (Elizabeth Zimmerman's daughter) heard that Cheryl was bringing back Sweater 101 she said,

"I had no idea your wonderful book was coming back . . . Hooray! Don't think I've given a workshop in the last 15 years without mentioning you and it."

AND CHERYL WILL BE HERE, IN VISTA, TEACHING THE WORKSHOP THAT WAS THE BASIS OF SWEATER 101 ON JUNE 19!!! She teaches very seldom any more so don't miss this opportunity to learn from "the teachers' teacher." 

There are only a couple of seats left so call today and reserve one of them! This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a giant step toward becoming an empowered sweater-maker, able to adapt any pattern to any size or yarn and able to create your own patterns at will. It's simple once you know the smart way to do it. 

If you can't make the full workshop and want a fun evening with the magic math trick that "changed [Shirley Paden's] professional life!" join us from 6-8pm that evening (June 19) for Knitting, S.E.X., Chocolate and a Couple of Math Skills. Click here for details.

Warm (& sweatery) regards,
