Substituting yarn, especially for lace patterns, can be a challenge! But we’ve got your back. Join knitwear designer Romi Hill for a Fiberside Chat on the why, what, and how of yarn substitutions. Why should you be careful about choosing the right fiber for your project? What is the right spin? How do you compensate for differences? Romi will use her virtual teaching set-up to show you how to get the most out of your next project, and all questions are welcome!
Romi Hill lives on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Northern Nevada, where the high desert nights are cool and the air is clear and crisp.
