Technique Class- Fixing Mistakes!
Last weekend's technique class with Steph was a huge success!  Every knitter who took the class was very pleased and learned quite a bit about sewing up seams.  The next technique class will involve fixing mistakes and picking up sts for bands.  Bring size 7 needles.  We will supply the yarn.  You will be knitting up swatches with built in mistakes needing to be fixed.  Then a button band or a neckband will be picked up and knit along a side edge. 
Call to sign up soon as class is limited to 8 students.
