Yarn Shopping 101 / TBD
You've got the pattern you want to knit, but now you have to find the yarn. When the yarn specified is discontinued, out of your price range, not a fibre you like to use, or just not available nearby, how do you go about choosing a yarn that will work?
We are always happy to help you choose yarn, but in this class, we will arm you with the knowledge you need to shop more independently--especially in these days of shopping online and doing curbside pickup! You will learn:
- How to interpret what the designer used
- How to use the information on a ball band
- Why yarn weight matters (and when it matters less)
- How fibre makes a difference
This class dovetails with our class about gauge (Knitting Garments That Fit) but also can be taken independently of that one and will be of value to both knitters and crocheters.
