Product Details

Have you ever noticed a mistake in your knitting and thought ripping it out was your only option to fix it? In this workshop you will learn techniques to use instead of undoing all of your work. We will solve common problems such as dropped stitches, extra stitches, mistakes in lace and mixed up color work. We will practice all the techniques so that you can use them in your own knitting.

For the comfort and safety of our students and teachers, students may be asked to wear a mask during in person classes and workshops, and masks are available upon request.
