Knitting for Speed and Efficiency with Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Workshop Description: This interesting class examines the various techniques, attitudes and history of the most productive knitters, and is designed not necessarily to change how you knit (unless you want to) but to help you become the most efficient knitter you can be on your own terms. We’ll look at the various styles of knitting, and have some instruction on “lever knitting” (fixed needle knitting.) We’ll talk about techniques for knitting faster through changing what you do, and the way you think.
Student skill level: This class is interesting for all levels – although beginners should have a good grip on the basics. Cast on and off, knit, purl, increase and decrease.
Students to bring: Your regular knitting supplies, smooth, light coloured worsted weight wool, and your favourite needles to match (Circulars, DPN’s, whatever you like best), as well as long straight needles (14 inches) of the same size.
Materials fee: None. Coffee, continental breakfast, and vegan-friendly buffet lunch are provided.
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 13, 2020. 9am-4pm.
