Knit a Masterpiece from Leftover Yarns with Gwen Bortner
If you knit enough projects, you have leftover yarn...a lot of it! Or maybe you just buy a single skein as a souvenir from each of your travels. But the question remains: What to do with all those bits, pieces, and odd skeins?
Class begins with learning how to organize the yarn for easier use. Next, working with the yarn brought to class, experiment with different fabrics that only require a minimal amount of any given yarn. Finally, discuss options for utilizing the fabrics to create a masterpiece project.
A wide variety (a minimum of 10 yarns, more is fine) of left over yarns balled up and ready to be used (small amounts are welcomed and encouraged), Please bring yarn you are willing to share with your fellow classmates as it will enhance the learning experience. In addition, please bring 1 oz of a smooth black worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles for worsted weight yarn, a scissors.
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.
