All About Yarn is offering a different technique workshop once a month for 8 months starting November 17, 2012. So mark your calendars and join Kathleen Fajardo one Saturday each month from 10:00am-12:00pm.
You can “drop in” and pay $10.00 per workshop or sign-up for all 8 for only $70.00!
Below we have listed a brief description of each of the fabulous workshops:
Go beyond a basic backward loop cast-on and learn the long-tail, provisional, cable and knitted methods. In addition, we’ll cover binding off your stitches while maintaining a knitting pattern. Learn the 3-needle bind-off for smooth seams, the yarn-over bind off for toe-up socks and binding off with a crochet hook.
Have projects that need help? Trying to get projects done by Christmas and run into problems? Bring them in and learn how to fix the problem.
Love a pattern but can’t get the same yarn listed in the directions? Or do you have a great yarn and are not sure what pattern to use? Learn how to do just that with a variety of methods to determine just the right combination.
Learn a different method of knitting that is not only efficient, but can reduce the “wear & tear” on your wrists and hands. This is the perfect workshop for knitters who would like to learn a new knitting style. Basic beginner knitting skills required.
Learn how to use knitting charts successfully and add more versatility to your knitting. A general overview of chart reading, understanding how a pattern repeats with in a chart, and tips for keeping track of your progress. *Needed skills for “lace” knitting.
Not quite sure how to complete a short row? Learn how to effectively use this technique in your knitting for everything from sock heels to shaping.
Learn to confidently undo and fix your knitting without having to completely restart your project. Undoing stitches, picking up dropped stitches, turning twisted stitches and identifying incorrect stitches will all be covered.
Learn a variety of different techniques to join your finished pieces together including mattress stitch and setting in sleeves. The Kitchener stitch, also called Grafting will be included as well.
