Bind-Offs 101

Wednesday, Apr 3

One 2 hr session 7 pm – 9 pm

$30 plus tax

Do your bind-offs leave something to be desired? Just as there are numerous ways to cast on stitches, there are many was to bind off your work to suit specific needs, for example, to match the appearance of your cast-on, to provide a firm edge, or to provide a super stretchy edge. In this class, you will learn a number of methods of binding off your knitting, and when you might want to use each one.

 

(Note: a little bit of advance homework required – instructions will be provided.)

Fixing Mistakes 201 (intermediate/advanced)

Wednesday Apr 10

One 2 hr session 7 pm – 9 pm

$30 plus tax and materials

It happens to every knitter – a mistake! You already know how to recognize and fix simple mistakes, such as dropped, or wrong stitches, and you know how to “tink.” You even know some tips for preventing mistakes before they happen.

But this one is, yikes, a BIG mistake! You’ve just realized that your lace pattern went wrong several rows back – or that your cable 20 rows (and 3 cables) down is twisted the wrong way. Or disaster has struck - your needle just fell apart in the middle of a very long, complicated row, and all of a sudden, your stitches are unravelling before your horrified eyes. Are you tempted to just toss the whole thing? Or do you have to wait until a really, really kind friend is both willing and able to rescue your ailing project?

What if you knew how to fix the mistake yourself, focussing on just the problem area – without having to rip WAY back? If you’d like to learn how, this class is for you. We will be learning a method for fixing more complicated mistakes in both lace and cable projects – otherwise known as “knitting surgery.”

(Note: some advance homework required – “gone wrong” pattern for a swatch of lace and/or cable knitting will be provided.)
