Join toy-knitting expert Susan B. Anderson to knit an adorable pint-size Gnome. The Gnome is worked from the bottom-up and completely seamlessly. In class, Susan will demonstrate techniques and give loads of tips for completing your Gnome but also for toy-knitting in general. We'll go over techniques for working in the round on double-pointed needles with a small number of stitches, picking up stitches to add on arms and feet, stuffing tips and more! There will be lots individual attention as well as projected technique demonstrations during the class. The Gnome is a happy little project. You will leave class being a much more confident toy-knitter!
