Saturday, August 23rd 1:00 - 4:00 PM
Learn to play in your stash and create beautiful new finished projects. This workshop will cover all of the basics of stash-busting. The first half of the class will include determining yarn weights when the ball band is missing using wraps per inch (no special tool needed!), estimating yardage and figuring out fiber content. The second half will cover using Ravelry to help put your stash to good use. We will talk about how stitch patterns, colors, fiber content, and weight all contribute to the look of your finished knitted project. Finally, Kristina will bring many samples of knits (and a few crafts) as examples of busting your stash in the best and most beautiful way possible.
Kristina has been knitting for ten years and professionally teaching knitting for four of those years. She has worked at Main Street Yarns in Watkinvile while she attended the University of Georgia, and more recently at Lovin' Knit in Marietta. She has enjoyed teaching with knitting guilds, the 2013 Alpaca Fiber Fest, Time to Knit, and has opened a home studio. When she is not knitting, Kristina is working on her Masters in Counseling. Her other hobbies include anything to do with fiber - spinning, crocheting, sewing, crafting, as well as cooking and baking.
