OOPS! Fixing mistakes, dropped stitches, and more! (EVENING EDITION)
Flustered by mistakes? Not sure what happened 5 stitches back? Learn to recognize common knitting mistakes and fix them! In this workshop, you’ll learn how to safely unknit stitches, learn what causes twisted stitches (and how to fix them), pick up that pesky dropped stitch, and learn exactly what “tink” and “frogging” is, and when and how to do what!
Participants must know how to knit, purl, cast-on, bind-off, and comfortably knit stockinette stitch without support. This class is meant for knitters who have made a few projects and are ready to tackle fixing their own mistakes, not complete beginners.
Please note: THERE IS HOMEWORK REQUIRED: If you do not do your homework, you will not be able to fully participate in the workshop. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of the workshop with your completed homework.
