Swatchbuckling with Carson Demers
Avast ye maties! Let's bring improved ergonomics to life in your knitting technique.
We'll swatch to improve your posture, comfort, and efficiency. We'll examine 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 and to avoid stiffness and injuries caused by disuse.
Light color worsted weight yarn, needles appropriate for yarn weight, and a small towel or shawl that can be rolled.
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.
