Yarn 101

Yarn 101



Even if you’ve been knitting for a while, going into the yarn store can be overwhelming.  So many choices.  What’s the difference and how do I know what to choose?  If you feel like this, join us for a fun afternoon of yarn exploration.  In this class you’ll learn all about gauge and the difference between the various weights – sport, dk, chunky, and what the heck does worsted mean anyway?  You’ll learn how to read a yarn label and how that information relates to what your pattern is telling you. 

You’ll learn the basics of the different types of fibers—how they behave, and what they each need to perform their very best in your project.  You'll gain an understanding of the various ways yarn can be dyed as well as how and to choose a color style for your project.  

This is a hands-on, interactive class, so bring your needles and a sense of adventure .  I think you’ll learn a lot, and I promise you’ll have fun.
