Swatchbuckling with Carson Demers
Bring improved ergonomics to life in your knitting technique. Students will swatch to improve posture, comfort, and efficiency while knitting. Carson will work with knitters to examine yarn tensioning techniques, and all phases of stitch creation first with simple, and then more challenging swatches and stitches. Students will also look at ways to add movement to knitting to avoid stiffness and injury caused by disuse. Class is appropriate for students who are comfortable with basic knit-and-purl stitches. Swatches of basic cable and lace patterns are also made in class. Stitch patterns are provided in both written and charted form.
