Choosing the right needle for your project is the most important decision you’ll make! Discover what a problems can occur when you pair the wrong needles with your chosen yarn and stitch pattern. This hands-on workshop can help you make better choices.
Far too often we discover the answer when we have reached for whatever vacant needle we have that matches the pattern’s suggestion.
Knitting needles have evolved to make our work easier – IF you pair them correctly with the yarn and stitch pattern you’re knitting. Pair incorrectly, and you’ll work much harder. Yet many knitters don’t understand the features a needle brings to a project and when to choose which needle.
Poor yarn and needle pairing can lead to muscle and eye soreness, even to injury. This hands-on class teaches you what to look for in a needle to minimize the strain on your body. As you knit a variety of stitches with the range of needles and yarns that are provided in class, you will have the opportunity to discover what works best for you.
