Save that Sweater! with Jeane deCoster
When we knit a sweater and it doesn't look fabulous once we wear it, we think we've knit a disaster and are ready to abandon it. *Nine out of ten times, the problem is how it fits—or even more simply— how you wear or style it.
Before you rip it out or give it away, come to class, and bring up to 3 of those “disasters" for salvation. With one-on-one attention and group participation, everybody will learn how to fix disasters and avoid repeating them. That's right! Have an open mind and you'll leave class prepared to start knitting with the confidence to evaluate the problems before they arise.
The results will be fabulous looking sweaters made with a couple of tweaks and a more seasoned eye. (*Of course, the 10th time may be an actual technical problem but don't worry – we can learn to fix it, too!)
__Bring up to 3 hand-knit garments that you consider to be a disaster. If you don't have any hand-knit garments – bring any top (sweater, blouse or jacket) from your wardrobe that doesn't make you feel good when you wear it.
__Please wear a camisole or other fitted garment that you are comfortable wearing in front of a group
