Lecture: Turbo Throwing: Super-Fast English Knitting
Date & Time
Saturday, March 25, 2017, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
All Levels Welcome
If you’ve ever heard that Continental knitting (yarn in left hand) is faster than English knitting (yarn in right hand), don’t believe the hype. Unfortunately however, most of us don’t knit English-style in the most efficient manner. In this lecture, Debbie Stoller will teach you how to knit Engish-style the way it’s done in the Netherlands (and elsewhere), which is much quicker. We’ll go over the history of how English knitting evolved from horsehair pouch to the knitting needles we know today; what got lost in the process; and how to use the “pit knitting” method to substantially speed up your English-style knitting.
Supplies for Class:
If you want to join in and play with this fast technique, you can! Bring 14" long straight needles size 8 and some worsted-weight yarn to go with them. Debbie will teach you the basics in this lecture!
