Lynette is a master at our craft to say the least. She is a prolific knit wear designer with a strong affinity for lace knitting, embellishing and using her finished knitted projects as a canvas for painting. It was her design of a stunning, hand painted, two piece mohair ensemble consisting of a sheath dress and long coat that won her an invitation to Vogue Knitting Live in New York City where she was first runner up in the Mohair design contest. Her gorgeous designs have since been featured in numerous issues of Vogue Knitting.
Lynette is the head instructor for our knitting classes and each spring and fall has exciting new designs for our class choices. She loves to take photographs not only of knitting but of the beautiful surroundings we have in Nanaimo.
Lynette is our full time in store expert and is well loved and trusted by anyone with any kind of knitting dilemma. Many a troubled knitter, both beginner and experienced, have flocked to her for her expertise.
“There has been some speculation that there might be some sheep in my ancestry because I have yet to meet a wool that I don’t like. Of late my passions have been directed towards designing; first for my students and secondly for others. With each new project I feel my creativity expanding with lots of ideas to share with anyone interested in listening!”
