Care to Join Me? with Sarah Peasley
The end of the skein. Changing to a new color. A knot or a thin spot in the yarn. You can't avoid it—at some point you'll have to join a new strand of yarn to your knitting. What's the best way to do that? How do you avoid join-related issues, like knots, bumps, jogs, or twisted stitches? What works best for stockinette, cables, or Fair Isle? Practice a variety of joins, then compare and contrast the effects and discuss the pros and cons of each. Weaving in ends will be mentioned in passing, but is not the main focus of this class. Join the ranks of smarter, more confident knitters, with Sarah as your guide!
