You’ll learn everything from neutral postures to optimal tensioning techniques to help you be a comfortable, lifelong knitter. We’ll apply various strategies that can improve your productivity, efficiency and comfort. Working in small groups you’ll examine your yarn tensioning techniques, and all phases of stitch creation first with simple then more challenging swatches and stitches. We’ll also look at ways to add movement to knitting to avoid stiffness and injuries caused by disuse including walking while you knit. Class is appropriate for students who are comfortable with basic knit purl stitches.
