We know many of you are already signed up and excited for Anne Hanson’s visit to our shop this Sunday. Many of you have asked for more information regarding the “Yarn Voyage For Knitting and Design” class. Have you ever wondered why, when substituting yarn in a pattern, despite achieving exact gauge, your finished object looks nothing like the original? Much more than a discussion about yarn weights, this explorative class for knitters of all levels will review a myriad of yarn characteristics and their effect on knitted fabric.
During this class you will learn how yarn type relates to gauge, needle size, texture, and fabric integrity, as well as use that information to make better choices and/or substitutions in their projects. You will test yarns of various fibers, twist ratios, and dye applications to make comparisons and learn to assess final fabrics. Even the most experienced knitters will go away with new insights.
