Lisa Daehlin Knitting in the Grotto of Eglise de Notre Dame NYC
"When I look at the world, I see it in many ways... one of those angles is through the lens of stitches, primarily in the 'positive/negative' space (perhaps one might call it 'manifest/potential' space) such as one can create with lace.
Lace of loops and holes. Lace of tendrils and gathered spaces and stitches clustered and dispersed.
I call it an 'examining of the space-in-between' and find it endlessly captivating and full of possibilities."

Lisa Daehlin is a knitting designer and opera chanteuse.

She teaches in venues including the Studio Arts Workshop at Newark Museum, PS122 Gallery, Harlem Knitting Circle, Vogue Knitting LIVE, and the American Folk Art Museum in New York. A continuing education faculty member at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and the Arts for seven years, she has the honor of having been the first teacher of knitting and crochet courses at this historic New York City institution.

A sought-after designer of knitted and crocheted fabrics and objects, she free-lances for the fashion industry and retail design.

Her designs can be seen walking the streets of Manhattan, gracing the pages of Interweave Knits, Knit.1, Knit Simple and Vogue Knitting magazines as well as featured in Lace Style, Bag Style, and The New Tunisian Crochet books published by Interweave Press, and Vogue Knitting: Ultimate Hat Book and Vogue Knitting: Shawls and Wraps by Sixth and Spring Books.

So... about that "opera chanteuse" moniker.... Her one-woman show (a blending of classical art song, cabaret schtick and knitting and crochet - you heard me right ;-) "Twisted Stitch: an Opera Knit Cabaret" shows up periodically in cabaret spaces, concert halls, and yarn shops. Perhaps soonly in a shop near you, especially if you invite her to town.... just sayin'....
