August 8 Gauge and Blocking
10 am - 12 noon PT
Checking your gauge is necessary if you want projects to fit, but a lot of people aren't sure if they're doing it right. In this class we'll discuss why gauge is so important, the best way to make a swatch, and the rare times when you can get away with being not quite on gauge. We will also practice measuring gauge on a variety of stitch patterns, and go through the process of both wet blocking and steam blocking. This class will be useful for anyone who knits or crochets garments or accessories.
This workshop will take place on Zoom and registered students will receive the link two days in advance. Students will receive a handout as well as the slides shown during class, and will have the opportunity to ask questions during the workshop. The workshop will not be recorded and students do not have permission to record it themselves, but videos shown during class will be available to re-watch.
Materials Needed: This is a lecture and demonstration style class so you don't need to have any tools and you are welcome to knit or crochet while watching. You may want to print out the handout that will be emailed to you two days in advance and/or have note-taking supplies and a calculator on hand.
