Gayle Roehm – Japanese Knitting
Handweavers Guild of Boulder
November 2020 Day & Evening Program
Gayle teaches knitting classes around the country, with a focus on using Japanese patterns. She loves to introduce knitters to the pleasures of Japanese designs, and her knowledge of the subject is unmatched.
Her article about Japanese knitting appeared in Knitter’s Magazine in 1997, and was among the first information to appear in English on the topic. She prepared the Japanese section of the book Knitting Languages, and for some time she was the translator for Dancing Fibers, importer of Diakeito yarn.
Now that Japanese books and magazines are readily available online, Gayle has been teaching knitters across the country how to understand and enjoy these intriguing designs. She has taught for Stitches events, Interweave Knitting Lab, Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat, Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, Vogue Knitting Live, Knitter’s Connection and numerous other national, regional and guild events.
Her designs for garments and accessories have appeared in Knitter’s Magazine, Interweave Knits, A Gathering of Lace, and for yarn companies such as Jamieson & Smith. She is a member of Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery in Alexandria, VA, where she sells her original handknits.
