Sticks and Strings

Carson Demers

Thursday All Day

What could possibly go wrong with two needles and some yarn? Do you know that choosing the right needle for your project is the most important decision a you’ll makes about your project? Far too often, we reach for whatever vacant needle we have that matches the pattern’s suggestion. Knitting needles have evolved to make work easier – if you pair them correctly with the yarn and stitch pattern you’re knitting. Paired incorrectly, and you’ll work much harder than you need to. Yet many knitters don’t know what a needle’s features bring to a project and when to choose them. Poor yarn and needle pairing can lead to muscle and eye soreness, and even injury. This class teaches you what to look for in a needle to minimize the strain on their body. You’ll knit a variety of stitch patterns with a variety of needles and yarns.

Skill Level: Advanced beginner through advanced knitter. A basic understanding of how to read charts is strongly encouraged. It is helpful if the knitter has knit simple cables and lace patterns as these will be knit in class.
