Are you such a perfectionist that it’s hard to use leftovers because you might run out of a yarn mid-stripe and it won’t match? We can’t change that “precise personality” but we can make your knitting appear more random, less structured.
Perfectionists welcome! You will learn games to play and sequences to use that give you a guide while allowing the stitch or color repeat to look like it just happened by chance. Imagine choosing from 10 different ways to “force” yourself to knit random. All of the options can be used for color or stitch textures—or both! You’ll have more tricks up your sleeve than a magician. Apply one or all of these techniques as you begin a scarf, shawl or poncho in class.
Here’s what to bring to class:
- Yarn in colors you like together. They do not need to be the same weight. A large variety of at least 12 small balls of yarn is better than three large ones.
- Straight or circular needles in sizes 7, 8 or 9 (depending on the average weight of the yarns).
- Note paper and pencil
- A pair of dice
Handouts will be provided in class.
The cost for this three-hour workshop is $30. Sign up at the March meeting or contact Program Chair Tina Rounsavell to reserve your spot.
