The Absolute Best Way to Learn How to Knit Continentally. Just back from Seattle Vogue Knitting Live, knitting instructor/knitwear designer, Leslye Solomon, will be at Delmarva Fiber Festival with a huge selection of exciting designer yarns at great prices and holding her most popular class described below. Join Leslye to take her class called…..
The Absolute Best Way to Learn How to Knit (or switch to) Continental Style Knitting..
It doesn’t matter how old you were when you learned to knit or if you are left or right handed, Leslye has a proven technique that will help you quickly and easily change your style to knit faster, ergonomically, and create a more even fabric. Classes continue to sell out year after year because, as a result of this fun and easy-to-learn technique, students begin to fly through and love ribbing and seed stitch which are knit fabrics many knitters choose to avoid. Besides becoming more productive through speed, this method will also stop the problem of knitting too tight or too loose. Aches, soreness, and pains caused by your present winding method of possibly detrimental repetitive motion might be greatly reduced or eliminated with her reduced motion method. Enjoy renewed knitting confidence as you will find yourself attempting more complicated stitch projects. This life-changing, 3-hour, class is for beginners as well as experienced knitters.
Supplies: Bring light colored, smooth Aran or knitting worsted weight wool yarn and size 8 or 9 needles.
Special Class Price $29.95
