This technique is a type of seaming most commonly used to close the toe
of socks, but it is also useful for projects like cowls, hats, and shawl
edgings. Used for joining two pieces that have live stitch loops on two
needles, it exactly mimics the appearance of stockinette stitch. The
join is smooth and virtually invisible with no lumpy seam allowance,
just as if it had been knitted in one piece. This class is for knitters
who can already cast on, knit, and purl.

|1:10||Fiber Prep: From raw fleece to ready-for-spinning fiber, this demonstration is for those interested in understanding just what it takes to transform a sheep's fleece into knittable yarn. Shearing and skirting, washing, combing or carding, blending and dyeing are just a few of the steps taken before we cast on. Intended for spinners as well as those generally curious about how and why certain decisions are made at each step of the process and the tools involved to accomplish the tasks. Bring your curiosity and questions.||20|
It's easy to add beads to your knitting. This class will show you how,
using dental floss threaders. You will be making a headband, with sport

choosing. We will supply the threaders. This class is for those who
can cast on, knit, and purl.
|3:30||Tension and Pain Relief Strategies: Do you push for "just one more row"? Does that additional row give you tense shoulders, aching hands and wrists? Do you sit for hours at your spinning wheel only to feel strained or stuck when you do stand up? Do you have aches and pains from working on a project too long? Come to a Knit & Yoga session to learn how to avoid those project stoppers while sharing your passion for knitting, crocheting, or spinning with other yarn and fiber lovers. Bring your current works-in-progress and while you work, you'll learn important strategies and a little yoga to avoid repetitive stress injuries while sharing our passion for all things fiber! The mission is to inspire you to be physically and mentally healthy to pursue the activities you love through both yoga and a healthy lifestyle.||15|
