CLASSES FOR JULY
Learn To Knit Continental
Have you ever wanted to learn to "knit the other way"? Well this is the class you have been waiting for!! There are many reasons to learn to knit continental (and purl). Multi strand knitting, those hard to execute techniques, looking really smart and the biggest reason of all, ITS JUST PLAIN FUN!!
Join Barbara and together you will explore the art of knitting "the other way'!!
This is not a learn-to-knit class. Students must be proficient in casting on, knitting, purling and binding off.
We will be working on a scarf, washcloth, basic hat or just a swatch. I recommend that you pick a project that would give you something to practice on after we are finished with class. Marney and Ruth have brought in so many gorgeous yarns I”m sure there is something you have been eyeing and now you have a darn good reason to grab it!!
Saturday July 29th 10:30-12 Cost $20 per student
Claud Nelson will be teaching "Fix Your Knits" on July 15 at 11:00. This class looks like a lot of fun and will be great for many knitters. The price for the class is $20. Try it out. A super duper class description is below.
Mistakes are just a reality of knitting. So, don’t panic, and learn how to recognize and correct these knitting mistakes with confidence! This class will help you learn to read your knitting so you can correct your mistakes quickly. It will discuss proactive and reactive lifelines, and help you to recognize when to use them. We will also cover issues like whether you need to un-knit or rip back your work to the mistake or whether it can be repaired on the next row.
Become a more confident, capable knitter as you learn to recognize and remedy any knitting mistake you make.
Things that we’ll cover:
·Reading your knitting
oWhat row am I on?
oWhat is a twisted stitch and how to correct it
oThe difference in a YO and a Make one
·Picking up dropped stitches in:
oAfter you’ve bound off
·Correcting increases and decreases
·When to rip back
Please bring a swatch knit in worsted weight yarn on size 7-9 needles. The swatch should be at least 26 stitches wide and about four inches long. The right half of the swatch (the first 13 stitches) should be in stockinette stitch, the left half of the swatch (the last 13 stitches) should be knit in garter. DO NOT BIND OFF.
For example: cast on 26 sts
Row 1 (rs): K all sts.
Row 2 (ws): k13, p13.
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until the swatch measures 3.5-4 inches. This is not a gauge swatch, so don’t worry too much about exact size. It will be lopsided, that is fine, there is no need to block, and please remember to not bind off.
If you have any current projects sitting idle-waiting to be fixed, or just can’t wrap your head around a pattern, bring it in and we will address the issue in class to get you back on track!
