Instructor - Carol Puntel

Some of you know about humility stitches, but there are times when humble means actually having to fix something. Do you want to learn how to pick up those pesky dropped stitches (even when you are working in pattern or they have dropped down more than one row)? Do you want to learn about “frogging” and “tinking” and getting your stitches back on the needle with them all going in the right direction? What happens if you finish the row and there are too many or too few stitches? Are your yarn overs going in the correct direction? How about your increases and decreases? Is there a hole in your garment (or socks) that you want to repair? What happens when you get all done and the sweater is too big or too small----is there a way to fix this other than giving it away? Come to this class and learn these and other “Fix-It” techniques to help reduce your stress.

Steek This Coffee Cozy {Part 2}

Instructor - Carol Puntel

The thought of cutting your knitting strikes fear in the hearts of many knitters. Knitting in the round with addition of a “steek” and then cutting is the best way to work stranded colorwork such as Fair Isle. Knitting in the round with two hands helps keep tension even when doing colorwork. To turn this “tube” into a sweater means cutting for sleeves, necks, and button bands (in the case of a cardigan). This coffee cozy is a small project in which you can learn both two handed colorwork and the steeking technique. It is divided into two sessions.

Those who have already mastered two handed colorwork are welcome to come to only the second session where we cut and finish. The second session is 3 hours.

Cost is as follows: Session 1: $20; Session 2: $30; Both for $45
