Upcoming Class: KNITTING: Picking Up Dropped Stitches

Craft category: needle knitting
Class type: phone
Class date: January 30, 2016
Time: 2 PM eastern
Sign up deadline: January 16, 2016

Description: This class will be taught over the telephone. It will teach you how to pick up dropped stitches. Dropping stitches is part of knitting. When a pattern tells you to drop a stitch, you do it even though it might make your stomach flip or when you find that you have dropped a stitch that was not intended, you want to cry. Sign-up for this telephone class and learn about the construction of knitted and purl stitches and get experience picking up dropped stitches in a controlled situation and get them back on your needles. Even if you are not successful in getting that stitch on your needles, I guarantee you will leave this class with a better concept of the construction of knitted fabrics and better able to recognize when something is wrong. Working with larger needles and a thicker smoother yarn will help you observe the construction of your stitches. So, sign-up for this class and shed no more tears over dropped stitches. You will be able to leave the tissues in your knitting bag for when you need to clean the chocolate off your fingers.
Completion of homework prior to the start of this class is required. See instructions for homework in the “Additional Comments” section of this class listing.
