    As you probably know already, for me, knitting is more than just a hobby, it's kind of an existential metaphor for life.  I always mention at some point during any given class, that in knitting, as in life, there are some mistakes we make that we can go back and correct pretty easily.  We can ladder down and change that knit to a purl, or pick up a dropped stitch.  The fabric might be a little tight in that area at first, but it will soon ease out and be nearly invisible.  Likewise, if we have inadvertently hurt a friend or our partner, we can go back and offer a sincere apology, trusting that the fabric of our relationship will bounce back into shape.  Healthy relationships rely on open honest communication, but sadly, our knitting cannot talk to us.  When there's a problem, it just gives us the silent treatment, or worse, dares us to do the wrong thing.  Kinda like this:

    Dangerous phrases

    Knowing how to read and interpret what we see in our knitting is key.  In our upcoming class, "Reading Your Knitting and Fixing your Mistakes" you'll learn how to identify those danger areas and how to get out of them without ripping back or making them worse.  This class is the single most empowering thing you can do as a knitter.  Knowing how to avoid problems, identify them if they happen, and fix them smoothly.  Think of it as couples therapy for your knitting. 

    I look forward to seeing you in the shop and around the table.  You are always welcome here.  ~Ellen
