Lace and Cable Surgery
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL! CONTACT PROGRAM CHAIRS KAREN OR CAROL TO ADD YOUR NAME TO THE WAITING LIST.
In this workshop, we will discuss techniques to avoid lace and cable mishaps and then learn how to rip a section of lace back and knit it up row by row without having to rip the entire project out. After the lace, we will move on to mis-crossed or mis-placed cables, exploring how to use duplicate stitch to cover small problems and how to ladder down and fix other issues.
Students will be given charted knitting homework to be prepared prior to the class: a lace swatch and a cable swatch with mistakes, to be operated upon during class!
Level of Experience: Advanced beginner (minimum; experienced knitters welcome). Students should be able to cast on and comfortably knit and purl.
Homework: Charted knitting instructions in a downloadable pdf document are here.
Materials: Swatches, double-pointed knitting needles at least two sizes smaller than used to knit swatch, crochet hook in similar size to double-pointed needles, small foam core sheet (or something else to which the swatch can be pinned), T-pins, point protectors, patience.
Member’s Cost: $30
