Project Prep Class- This Weekend!


Project Prep Class
Saturday November 14, 2015
1:00pm to 3:00pm
$30 per person- some materials included
Please bring with you: A selection of yarn and needles to match for swatching, a notebook, a tape measure, stitch markers and if available, please bring your tablet or ipad.
This class is one of our most popular classes that we teach and is absolutely essential for knitters of all skill levels to take part in!
Project prep class walks you through the basics of getting set up for any knitting project. We talk about how to navigate ravelry.com- the online pattern mecca, we discuss how to choose a pattern that suits you and your knitting style, how to choose the proper yarn for your project, how to substitute a yarn that a specific pattern calls for and we also discuss tools and materials needed to get started with a project.
We have a lengthy in depth discussion about gauge and how, no matter what you say, your gauge will never be right on for every single project you knit! We talk about the specifics of this and what can change your gauge and how to make adjustments when this does happen and we also show you how to properly check your gauge before proceeding with a project. We end the class with an open discussion for questions and comments that you might have and we really encourage students to come to class with a few questions in mind that we might be able to assist you with!
Our students have given us rave reviews on this class and we highly recommend it to knitters of all skill levels! We have been told by experienced knitters "I went in to this class thinking I knew everything and came out of this class realizing I knew nothing!"
We have 10 seats available in this class and we always sell out! Give us a call at the store to reserve your spot- only a paid seat can be reserved. 705-223-8245
