Ever looked at your knitting and said, “What happened THERE?” Seen a dropped stitch way down there? Or picked up your project and wondered “where you were in the world was I?” How many decreases/increases have I worked? What row was I on? That’s OOPS! and this workshop can help.

It’s divided into two sections; Knowing Where You Are and Identifying and Correcting Mistakes. Harry shares all sorts of tips on how to read your knitting so you’ll recognize what you are looking at, where you are, and what to do next, whether that be correcting a problem or moving ahead with confidence!

A sampling of the topics covered is recognizing types of stitches, counting rows in stockinette stitch and garter stitch, unknitting, the importance of stitch mount, identifying and fixing twisted stitches, vertical fixes for stitch mistakes or dropped stitches found lower in your knitted fabric, lifelines, causes of holes in knitting, and common causes of having too many stitches or not enough stitches.

Oops! Correcting Mistakes

I think this is a class well worth taking. The information is clearly presented and the handouts are easy to understand. I'd probably take any class that he is teaching because I enjoyed Harry's teaching style.

Great class

I’m an experienced knitter and learned skills that I didn’t know

So helpful!

Thank you Harry for a great class. All knitters (especially beginners like me!) I think will benefit from taking Harry's class. He customized a lot of the questions to the classes level, and was very open to questions and discussion about our projects. I learned a lot, and literally used some of the techniques to fix mistakes immediately on my next project. Thanks again!

Oops be gone!

Let Harry guide you around the treacherous oops. I cannot over learn fixing my boo boos. Thank you for guiding us through the "easy" and more complicated knitting fixes. Including tinking and frogging. 😉
