OOOPS! Correcting Knitting Mistakes (and Preventing Them).
Sunday, October 18, 2020
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM (EDT)

This class is specifically designed for beginning knitters and will make you a more competent, informed knitter.  Ever look at your knitting and say, "What happened THERE?", or panicked as a dropped stitch ran down it, or picked up your knitting project and wondered "Where am I in the pattern?"-how many decreases/increases have I worked, what row was I on, etc.? And why did this end up too big/too small?? Take this class! Divided into two sections, "Knowing Where You Are" and "Identifying and Correcting Mistakes", this class teaches how to "read" your knitting--to recognize what you are looking at, where you are, what to do next, whether that be correcting a problem or moving ahead!
