Mini Skein Swap

with Tracy Workman 


Description:

Rules:


At least 7 grams each. Please skein them up (and if you have the info, please try and label them.)


How it will work: Bring a mini skein, take a mini skein. So if you bring 1, you take 1. If you bring 5 mini skeins, you may take 5 mini skeins (3, 4, 20, etc.)


Got it? Easy Peasy!


If you have a class/5k you may send a proxy in your place to swap for you. (Please let us know who your proxy is.)


To make things fair, as you bring up your mini skeins, we’ll have you write down your Ravelry/Discord name and the number of skeins you are trading, then once everyone has turned in their skeins, we’ll draw from the hat for each persons turn to pick. Similar to the $20 skein swap we’ve had in the past.


Oh and the TWIST? You only have 20 seconds to pick out your new skeins during your turn (for the sake of time!)


IF you don’t make the 20 second time limit, you have to put ALL the mini’s you did choose back on the table, and your name goes back in the hat/bucket/bowl! Say you are picked first, if you don’t hit your 20 seconds, you could end up middle or last, depending on when your name gets chosen again!


Any leftovers will be put on the winding table for first come first serve.


Materials:

Bring Minis! See Rules above for size.

Class duration:

30 minutes

Offered:

Double the Fun with Large Gauge Stitches

With Shaina Scott 


Description:

During this class, students will learn the fun technique of adding multi-gauge stitches to their knitting. We'll cover the basics of creating knit stitches that are 2 and 3 times the size of normal stitches, and how to add this technique into a pre-existing pattern. We'll be adding this technique to a simple set of fingerless mitts that students will prepare ahead of time as homework. By the end of class students should be binding off and will have a finished project to take home.

Skill level: Intermediate; students should be comfortable with cast-on, knit, purl, and bind-off stitches, and picking up stitches with a crochet hook. 

Materials/
Homework:

Participants should bring a crochet hook in a size similar to the needles used; locking stitch markers; scissors; notepad and pen; and at least 1 homework mitt with stitches live on the needles OR a 6" swatch with the stitches live on the needles.


Homework: I will be providing full copies of the Gaugetastic Mitts pattern to all students at no extra charge. These will be sent upon registration so you have time to prepare at least one mitt before class.

Class duration:

60 minutes
