A Year of Teaching Knitting – 2016 Review

Another year of teaching, traveling, knitting and laughing has come to an end.  I am so grateful that my job is to travel all over the country meeting and teaching (and being taught by) the most amazing knitters around.

This year saw travel to 22 cities, teaching hundreds of students live, thousands online, and 28 private students (live and streaming on the web). There were ups and downs, bad travel connections, lost luggage , and through it all, you were there.

2016 Knitting Events: Spring & Early Summer

2016 has started out with a bang. A great teaching trip to TNNA and Vogue Knitting Live NYC. Now I’m getting ready to head out to Stitches West, but before January & February becomes a memory, here’s a round up of the Spring, Early Summer teaching jobs.

Don’t forget, if you know a shop or guild that would like me to come visit. Let them know they can make teaching requests here. See my full schedule here.

I heart Vogue Knitting Chicago!!

Hello Chicago - p.lyons

The first sight of Chicago through the plane window made the city look like it was painted by Monet (very appropriate considering The Art Institute’s famous impressionist collection)

I always fall down on the job taking photos in Chicago. It is arguably one of the world’s most photogenic cities, with the lakefront and amazing architecture, every glance of downtown offers you a spectacular view . . . and then, there’s the lobby of the Palmer House!

Welcome to Vogue Knitting Live Chicago!

To say this venue is a special place, doesn’t quite cut it. I’ve taught in hotels and conference centers all over the country, but none of them welcomes you with this. Vogue Knitting Live Chicago at The Palmer House is truly magic!


My first night there I taught “All About Stripes” to an amazing group and it really started my show off right

All About Stripes class - p.lyons

Things just kept getting better as I headed to the market Friday night after another wonderful day of teaching.  As I got close to the entrance I saw one of my designs had made it onto the Vogue Knitting mannequin!! SQUEEEEE!!!!!

I headed into the market to ooh and ah at the fiber art:

Anna Hrachovec – Mochi Mochi


After seven classes I was both exhilarated AND exhausted all at the same time.  My amazing students give me so much, and I even got a wonderful bracelet from a student from Istanbul,


and this card from another . . . it sums up how I feel about my students, the other teachers, and the entire staff of Vogue Knitting Live


If you missed it . . . don’t worry, you can still join us in New York in January.  Believe me, it’s worth it.  See you all in Jan!
