 Phone: 606-494-2301, Email: janispcampbell@yahoo.com

 

Knit-Along Classes: In 2013  I will offer Tahki Stacy Charles projects. I’ve been knitting since the fifth grade and my expertise will be at your fingertips.  Email me to submit  projects (see my yarn list) you would like to see featured in a future class.

·        Classes are FREE with purchase of yarn and pattern (unless you already have the pattern).  Other supplies listed may also be ordered from Janis. Sign up and order supplies two weeks prior to start date. 

·        Class only using your own yarn: $30.00 plus cost of pattern, if needed. 

·        All skills will be explained in detail and individual help given as necessary.  Detailed instructions will be by email to the group.  Lessons will be sent weekly or as needed by group members.  You may choose to interact within the group or just with me.  Basics of fit, gauge, stitch patterns, how to read & follow patterns and finishing techniques will all be covered. Tips for improving your skills will be given.

·         In stock yarn quantities per color in parentheses. Order supplies two weeks before start of class. See colors available for special order here: http://tahkistacycharles.com/t/yarn_single?products_id=692.

MY FAVORITE TIPS: Always check websites for Pattern Errata before you begin.  ALWAYS make a gauge swatch, wash & block it.  Go up or down in needle size to correct your gauge.  Finish the swatch with a few rib rows to use for a pocket.  Avoid running short: order plenty because different dye lots may vary significantly.  When knitting with several colors used every few rows, carry yarn up the side of the knitting by catching in at beginning of row every few rows – avoid many ends to weave in & save yarn.   Hand wash all projects by soaking in cool water with Eucalan or similar product.  Save yarn label, leftover yarn, extra buttons for future reference or repair. Photocopy patterns for making notes & keeping the original clean: you may want to knit another size in the future!
