Knit Fix with Cindy Craig
Let's face it. We all have a favorite garment or socks that we have just about worn out but can't bear to part with, don't throw it out, let's salvage it for a few more seasons! We will work on repairing holes that result from different problems. We will practice in stockinette stitch and ribbing. This class will increase your understanding of how knit and purl stitches are created and how they relate to each other when mixed in a row.
