Many knitters are puzzled when they come across the instructions: "Block to finished measurements." Do you really have to block your work? Should you block before or after assembling the pieces? What is blocking anyway, and how should you go about it? Join Lindsay for a demonstration of the basics of blocking that will include how pins and blocking wires can be effectively used to block lace. Class limit: 6

Theresa will be sharing tips and tricks to complete on of her favorite holiday patterns: the Churchmouse Yarns & Teas' Wooly Wreath and Garlands.
The pattern makes wreaths of two sizes and we've kitted up the materials needed for this project. Each kit includes a copy of the pattern and the appropriate yardage of deliciously soft Fleece Artist Slubby Blue yarn to make a generously full wreath that you will be able to enjoy for years to come. Theresa will provide help to those who purchase a kit to master the tricky wrapped stitch that creates all those soft beautiful loops of yarn that create the downy texture that we love. Class limit: 6.
When: December 10th (Wednesday) from 5:30-7pm
Cost: $35 (excluding yarn and supplies)
Let’s all admit it; there are times when knitting can become frustrating because of a dropped stitch or constant unraveling. Let Amelia help by teaching you how to get over the inevitable speed bumps. In this class, students will learn basic fixes like making vertical and horizontal corrections; unraveling, recognizing and correcting twisted and skipped stitches, and common causes for too many or too few stitches. Before class, students will be asked to make a 4 inch Stockinette swatch with worsted weight yarn. Don’t bind off. Class limit: 6
Bring your knitted swatch with you to class, and a crochet hook and any knitting needle size 5 or smaller.
