NEW Happy Endings Finishing Class CANCELLED

 A KnitHow Class with Lynne Sosnowski

Are you one of those knitters who has a basket full of knit pieces just waiting to be seamed together or finished in some way? Come to this class where we’ll cover the things you need to know to put your project together and end up with a smile on your face.

This KnitHow class starts with seaming - including shoulder seams, side seams, all the parts of sleeve seams, and working two kinds of fabric texture together. We’ll also work on picking up stitches to make your edge treatments, sewing in ends securely, and washing & blocking.

We’ll talk about how different cast-ons and bind-offs can affect your finished project, and we’ll take up a list of questions from students in the class about finishing and point you to answers. Students are welcome to bring projects in progress as samples or to ask specific questions.

To be in the best position to practice the skills presented in this class, students should come with the following materials and two swatches worked as instructed below:

Materials

• Approximately 65 m of smooth medium weight yarn (wool preferred) in a light colour that you find easy to see

• one set of either 4mm or 4.5mm knitting needles, straight or circulars

• safety pins or locking stitch markers

• wool darning needle

• a few grams of yarn of a contrasting colour

• scissors or snips; • note-taking materials.

Please note: there will be other notions used in class, but the teacher will have a supply on hand for students to use. If you find them helpful you may choose to purchase your own after the class.
