Newsletter 9/18: Did You Miss Our Mistakes Class? We Have Another!

Short Row Savvy – 2 Spots Left!

Have you ever avoided a pattern because reading “short rows” in the description sent you into a panic? Join Wendy for this workshop to boost your technical knitting skills. We’ll learn German short rows, Shadow Wraps, and Japanese Short Rows in addition to the standard Wrap and Turn. We’ll also cover how you can use short rows for shoulder and sleeve cap shaping.
Please come to class with 4 identical swatches as follows: Cast on 18 stitches, knit 4 rows in garter, then work 6 rows stockinette. Each swatch should be on needles or stitch holders so it’s ready to be worked on during class. Please use smooth,light-colored yarn that requires size 7 or larger needles for your swatches.

Mistakes No More

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.
