Newsletter 1/16: A Busy Weekend Ahead at Knit One

Woodcutter Vest Class – Register Now

With the holidays behind us and a long stretch of winter ahead, it’s a great time to focus on learning new knitting skills!  Wendy’s a big fan of the designer Amy Herzog and her emphasis on fit, and is excited to help knitters use Amy’s newest book, You Can Knit That, to create this easy to wear vest – a perfect project for those who’ve been wanting to try their hand at knitting a first garment.
During 3 class sessions, students will learn shaping for waist, bust, armholes and necklines, along with basic finishing techniques and the most important part – using their measurements and a gauge swatch to select the right size before the knitting even begins!

Register for “Mistakes No More” Now – 2 Spots Left!

Mistakes – we all make them, but knowing different ways to fix them can help you become a more confident knitter, as well as saving you valuable time! Students will learn how to “tink,” rescue bad stitches several rows down, use a lifeline, and undo a bindoff. We’ll also cover the basic decreases and how to “tink” those. If you want to get over your fear of mistakes, this is the workshop you’ve been waiting for! Class size limited to 6. Using smooth, light-colored yarn in worsted weight or larger, please come with the following small swatch on your needles to use during class: cast on 10 stitches and work 6 rows in stockinette stitch.
When: Saturday, January 21st: 1:30-3:30pm
Cost: $25

February KALs & CAL

** What is a KAL or CAL?? **
KALs (knit-alongs) and CALs (crochet-alongs) are free project-based groups that occur on certain days throughout the month. They are very informal, meaning that you may start at any time throughout the month. In addition, you can work at your own pace. We offer these knit-alongs to bring the knitting community together and help knitters to expand their skill set. We highly encourage participatory individuals to purchase materials at Knit One so that can support our instructors and keep these events free of charge.
