Sept 16th (11am-1:00pm) In Stitches with Kim
In Stitches Stitch patterns create our favourite textures in our knits, and should be as unique as we are. Let’s develop a library of personalized stitch patterns, by expanding and contracting, manipulating and warping common stitch patterns. Learn how to adapt a favourite pattern to best suit a garment, scarf or shawl. Learn how to plan, map out or improvise a stitch pattern to travel in a dynamic way across your knits and how to incorporate it into newly increased or decreased stitches. **Note: this is a theory class that includes some playing with yarn. No specific project will be created, but many many evil plans will emerge!
Take whatever stitch pattern you and turn it into whatever EWE want!
Sept 16th (2:00pm-4:00pm)

Secrets from the Skein: What your yarn forgot to tell you! with Kim
Hand dyed yarns seduce us with their beauty, but are often challenging to work with. But once the honeymoon is over and you’re knitting your project, all its secrets rise to the surface. What is your hand dyed yarn REALLY telling you, and how can you best use it in your next project? We’ll explore: • What kinds of projects are best suited for different dyeing styles • Identify different dyeing styles and how to “read” your yarn • The myth of the “dye lot” • How to easily and effectively alternate skeins for larger projects
Pick the right yarn for your project!
