Fixing Mistakes with Sue

Let's face it: we ALL make mistakes when we knit. We drop a stitch or forget a yarnover and don't see it until the next row...and sometimes we're not quiiite sure how to fix it! If this sounds a little too familiar, this is the class for you!

Instruction will include picking up dropped stitches in garter, stockinette (on the knit and purl side), and how to correct mistakes at the beginning and end of row. You will learn to fix missed yarnovers and missed decreases.

EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: Basic knitting skills. Must know how to cast on, knit and purl.

HOMEWORK: Must ARRIVE at class with three different completed swatches approximately 4"x4" with smooth, light-colored worsted weight yarn.

* Swatch 1: garter, do NOT bind off, leave on needle

* Swatches 2 & 3: stockinette, do NOT bind off, leave on needle.

    PRICE: $45 for one two-hour session with Sue
