Left Can Be Right For You! with Kellie Nuss
Learn the basics of controlling your yarn with your left hand. We'll start with Continental knitting and purling, then take a trip around the world to survey knitting styles and innovations that make purling (and knitting) with the yarn in the left hand more efficient. Students will learn and try Norwegian purl, Eastern Combined knitting, and Portuguese Knitting.
1 ball smooth, light-colored, #4 (worsted-weight) yarn for swatching; straight or circular needles in any size from 4.5 to 5.5mm/US 7 to 9) or size appropriate to yarn choice and knitting style (loose or tight).
Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.
