HOMEWORK: Bring a computer or tablet fully charged, if possible. If you do not already have a Ravelry ID, please visit www.ravelry.com and register. Be sure to bring your name and password with you to class, along with materials for note taking. If possible, have a picture of a past knitting project (or WIP/work in progress) saved to your computer or tablet as we will be learning how to create a project file and upload a photo. This is an interactive class and while students can share computers, you will learn the most if you are able to practice on your own.
