Fixing Mistakes Workshop
For the safety of our students and teachers, if you are not fully vaccinated, please let us schedule you a private Zoom class.
There are so many ways to avoid having to rip out rows and rows of knitting to correct a mistake!
This workshop will start you out with simple fixes like correcting a stitch in-line or tinking back and then progress to rebuilding one or multiple stitches from rows back. We'll talk about life lines and how to insert them before proceeding or afterwards. The class will wrap up with demos showing how to rebuild lace and cables. There will be great hints and tips for beginners as well as for seasoned knitters.
