Often the hardest part of weaving is knowing what fibers to choose, what colors to mix, what weave structure is best for your project and how best to finish a piece. In this class students will learn all about how to match heddle/reed sizes to yarn weights as well as how to adjust sett based on weave structure.
Learn more about what yarns are best suited for the warp and weft as well as how to blend yarns of different weights and materials to create one cohesive piece. In class Sara will show lots of samples and share ideas on how to get color combinations that will pop. A portion of class will be dedicated to reviewing warp and weft calculation questions and advice on specific projects are encouraged. This class is intended to help rigid heddle, table loom or floor loom weavers of any level continue their mastery of weaving.
Learn how to combine double knitting with double-stranded garter stitch to produce a double-thick, double-sided plaid fabric. Explore the unique stitches used to transition from double-stranding to double knitting and back again. By the end of the class, students will be prepared to cast on the Breaking Plaid bandana cowl, or one of its many variations, such as a loop cowl, triangular shawl, or scarf.
Cut your knitting? Are you SILLY? Why would anyone do that? Well, knitting stranded color work is easier in the round. Not to mention that our tension is usually more consistent in the round as well. Whether you decide to make a set of single-color or stranded color work coasters as homework, we will all hold each others hands and cheer for one another while we cut our knitted coasters. You'll have the chance to steek your coasters twice and the opportunity to finish at least one in class. No liquid courage required!
