50 Shades of Sweaters
Never knit a sweater? Knit a few sweaters but none of them fit quite right? A chance to look at construction styles of 50 hand knit sweaters; along with yarn choices and textures, will allow students in the class to really visually “see” what they may like or dislike about a sweater they plan to knit. How to fix a gapping neckline? What about if a sweater is too long? What if sleeves are too short? Can a hand knit sweater actually make you look thinner?
Cori gives ideas for things you’ve never heard of doing to get a sweater to fit you superbly, shows you why some sweaters look great on everyone, and talks about why some sweaters will never fit anyone well, even though we love the look of them. These tips and more all in one place at one time. There is a try-it-on component to this class so participants will have an opportunity to get up close to all the items discussed.
Skeins to Skeins
Cori has developed a new interactive game based on the original matching card game of Apples to Apples. Using knitting trivia and fill in the blank prompts, the group works its way through some hilarious, amazing, awe-inspiring and downright naughty answers given by the small groups teamed up to play against one another. This is the perfect introduction for a group of knitters at a retreat, a knitting event or LYS social gathering. Cori uses a power point display to keep everyone on track while also playing emcee for the game. An unlimited number of players may participate while enjoying refreshments, dinner or evening snacks.
