Participants are invited to torture swatches by making and fixing mistakes and learning about the structure of knitted fabric. Participants are also invited to bring along projects where mistakes are holding them back from finishing.
Please bring a 10cm x 10cm swatch in a smooth medium weight yarn still on the needles. Please also feel free to bring a work in progress with a mistake you need help in resolving.
