Steek This Coffee Cozy {Part 1}

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.

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.

Instructor - Carol Puntel

Frustrated when you make what you hope will be a wonderful sweater and it doesn’t fit correctly? Not sure how to judge how the pattern in the picture will likely look on you? Unclear about making good yarn substitutions? This 2-part class is for YOU!

In the first class we will learn about what critical measurements we need and how to take them. You will leave with your own personal template of measurements. We will also talk about yarn substitutions and making a good swatch. We will also discuss ease and how that impacts garment fit.

In the second class we will use the swatch and pattern schematic to choose the best size to knit and make adaptations as necessary.

Please wear a fairly close-fitting tee shirt or tank to class. We will be taking measurements!

You should have basic knitting skills, be able to read a pattern, and be confident enough to want to knit your first sweater.

Two at a Time (TAAT) Toe-up Socks Using Magic Loop {Part 2}

Instructor - Carol Puntel

If you have knitted socks before and would like to be able to make two at once this could be your chance. If you have knitted socks before from the cuff down and would like to try toe up, this is also your chance. If you have never used the Magic Loop method of circular knitting this is definitely your chance.

Knitting socks from the toe up can help with customizing fit. This is also a great way to build in your gauge swatch. Finally, it is a great way to be sure you balance the yarn properly to get the same length cuffs without running out.

Some folks suffer from “second sock syndrome”. You finish one sock and instead of wanting to do the next one, you want to try a new yarn, pattern, or size. Off you go and suddenly you have a collection of single socks. Knitting two at a time (TAAT) can resolve this.

Magic Loop is a method of knitting in the round using one long circular needle. Many find this easier than manipulating dpns.

In this two- part class we will learn a special cast on and heel specifically designed for toe up. We’ll learn how to do two socks at once. You will also learn how to apply the Magic Loop method to socks and other circular projects.

Students should have knitted at least one pair of socks and have an understanding of basic sock construction and circular knitting. This is NOT an introductory sock class.

Selecting and Substituting Yarn

Instructor - Carol Puntel

Do you want to make the garment you saw on Ravelry or in the latest issue of your favorite knitting magazine? Unfortunately, the yarn recommended is discontinued, not available at Common Thread, too expensive or wrong for the season. How can you pick a good substitute? It isn’t just about gauge! In this class you will learn about the characteristics of various yarns. You will see how drape, stitch definition, wearability, and care are all impacted by the fiber or fiber blend you want to use. We will even talk about how you can figure out something about the fiber content of that stash yarn without a label! Hopefully you will leave with a better understanding of how to make your own choices.

(Please note, this is a 3-hour class.)
