One of the benefits of guild membership -- in any guild -- is the opportunity to learn from others who share your hobby passion. In a guild the size of AKG, there is a whole lot of knowledge just there for the asking at every meeting. Thus, it is a delight to post that our founder, Whit Robbins, will be offering a Tips and Tricks mini-workshop on Sunday 11 September at her home. The list of conventions Whit has attended or classes she has taken would over-fill this humble blog space. I took a version of this workshop from Whit some years ago when I first joined the guild. This is a great opportunity to learn from someone who has been knitting passionately and continuously for a lifetime.
Tips and Tricks for Knitters will help new knitters and those who just need a refresher, save time and avoid costly mistakes. Whit will guide you through several easy ways to make your knitting less work and more fun! Basic skills will be reviewed including increasing, decreasing, slip stitches, yarn-overs, correcting mistakes, gauge, blocking, joining yarns, and so much more!
Whit is a Master Knitter and Master Teacher who has shared her expertise with us for many years. You will leave this class with much knowledge and so much more confidence!
