Ginny is an adventurous knitter and weaver, eagerly trying knew techniques and patterns, and almost inevitably modifying patterns to fit her taste, her preferred techniques or the yarn she has on hand.
Her experience as a spinner has proven very helpful in her various fiber adventures.
Understanding the structure of yarn can be an important tool in making informed decisions on what yarn will work for any given project freeing the crafter to experiment, to contemplate substitutions, and avoid making unfortunate mistakes.
Saturday, 1:30 to 4:30 pm
Instructor: Ginny Mutti
Yarn, it is so basic for success in your knitting, crochet, weaving and even embroidery, but do you know about how to pick the best yarn for your project? Have you ever spent a fortune (or not) on yarn but were disappointed by how well it held up or how the item turned out?
What should you look for in selecting yarn? How do you substitute yarn if you can't find or afford the suggested yarn for a project.?
We will look at different yarns and learn how to make good choices. We will also make swatches and talk about the joys and pitfalls of swatching and how it can be an important aid in making you happier and more confident that the finished item is as wonderful as you envisioned.
Bring to class a yarn you would like to swatch and at least three different size needles or hooks that you think might work for your yarn.
