Darning and Beyond! Mending Your Knits

Sunday December 11th, 1-3pm

Taught by Elise Webb

An In-Person Class

 

Does your favorite handknit scarf have pesky moth holes? Is your big toe peeking through the end of your sock? Do the cuffs of your store-bought sweater need some love? Or do you just want the confidence to take apart and re-knit your cherished hand-knit pieces? Join Elise for a truly enlightening 2 and a half hours. Together, we’ll look at how to “read” your knitting to choose the right fix. Anything from a classic darn to invisible re-knitting!
 
Supplies you'll need.
  • Any and all garments that are in need of mending. We might not finish them all, but we’ll talk about how best to tackle each item.
  • Yarn or thread to mend with. This should never be thicker than the yarns of the garment.
  • Darning needles.
  • At least two double pointed needles (of a size that makes sense with your thread/knitted item).
  • Stitch markers.
 
A swatch for practicing while in class will be provided.
 
This is an in-person class, held at For Yarns Sake. $45, plus supplies
