Advanced, esoteric, perfectionist knitting including free patterns, reviews of books and products, and illustrated technique tutorials.
Waste Not: Scrap Busting class
If you have leftover short skeins, here’s the chance to figure out what to do with them. This class will give you lots of ideas about “ad finitum” knitting. We’ll look at striping — what works easily, what doesn’t. We’ll look at color. We’ll look at sample projects. Students will learn Russian join, set-up for two cylinders at the same time, lots of ideas for small projects, which search terms to use on Ravelry (there's a long reference list in the handout), and stitch patterns that work well with magic ball yarns.
Skill level is intermediate.
Prerequisite: Students should know how to knit, purl, and slip stitches.
Maximum 20 students.
½ day workshop
Students receive a handout in booklet form.
No materials fee.
lots of random samples of yarn
needles for working that yarn
a sharp chenille needle
No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. I have a projector if the facilities can accommodate it. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
