Blocking is essential to our knitting from the start (gauge swatch) to the end (finished object). In this class we will swatch and block different stitch patterns and calculate gauge. Keith will share his tips for speed blocking sweaters, scarves, and shawls. Then we will learn how different fibers "bloom," the proper way to use T-pins and blocking wires, and how to flatten our seams. You will walk away with a perfectly blocked project.
Bring finished, unblocked, small knit items such as shawls, scarves, cowls, kid sweaters.
Supplies for Class:
1 skein fingering-weight yarn; 1 skein worsted-weight yarn; size US #6 knitting needles; size US #7 knitting needles
