Technique Toolbox:  a skill-building workshop

Does disaster strike when you drop a stitch? Do “paired increases” sound like a dating website to you? Do you panic when picking up stitches? Are you perpetually knitting in the round to avoid sewing a seam?  If you’ve answered “yes”, then it’s time to fill your technique toolbox in this full-day skill building workshop.

In this workshop you’ll learn how to…

·       Un-do common knitting mistakes without “tinking”

·       Work paired increases and decreases to enhance the finished look of a garment

·       Pick-up stitches along straight and curved edges

·       Sew “seamless-looking” side and shoulder seams

·       Weave in ends so they stay put
