Snip and Zip: Steeks and Zippers with Franklin Habit
This empowering class is designed to guide timid and/or inexperienced knitters through two operations: the cutting of steeks (slashed openings in knit fabric) and the installation of zippers. These techniques are famous for causing anxiety in the uninitiated.

Note: Fluency in the basics of knitting, including knitting-in-the-round and stranded 2-color work (Fair Isle Knitting) is a pre-requisite.

__One ball (partial is fine) of wool yarn in a weight equal to, or slightly lighter than, the yarns used to knit the homework; it should be of a color that contrasts well with the homework yarns.
__One crochet hook, equal to or slightly smaller in diameter than the knitting needles used to knit the homework.
