On your knitting journey, roadblocks sometimes pop up. But with a little foresight, you can foresee tricky problems BEFORE they trip you up ­ a helpful skill when choosing projects you’ll actually complete and enjoy!

We’ll learn how to choose the right yarn for your finished project, discuss the beauty (and necessity!) of the swatch, and talk about how to make smart choices when you’re altering a pattern to suit your needs. We’ll also analyze different ways of photographing knitwear, and what secrets those tempting pictures might be hiding!

You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to pull off a piece of knitting that is timeless, flattering, and well­made.
