CANCELED- Eeks! Steeks FIBER FRIDAY with Mary Scott Huff via ZOOM!



Stranded color work knitting is lots of fun: Working in the round, easy shaping, minimal seaming; but how do you get from knitted tubes to people-shaped garments?

Easy: Make Steeks! Steeks are areas of knitting designed to be cut (gasp!) with shears and then finished with knitting. Steeks allow knitters to work in three dimensions, creating garments that fit! Scared to slice into your work? Not after this class with Mary Scott Huff. Students will make a class project, knitting in the round, and creating a steek. In the first half of class, Mary will guide you through three techniques for marking, securing, and cutting open your steek using the 3 homework swatches you complete prior to class.  

You will also learn various ways to finish the cut steek edges. During the second half, Mary will hold your hand as you make the cut in your completed 9th Anniversary Cowl, then walk you through the final finishing steps. If you wish, it's actually possible to leave class with a completed garment!

Your Zoom Link will be sent the evening prior to the day of class.  If you do not see your zoom link- please check your spam filter.
