Speed Blocking.  Need it NOW, Need it Gorgeous, Take this class!  Blocking is essential to our knitting from the start (gauge swatch) to the end (finished object). In this class, we will swatch and block different stitch patterns and calculate gauge. Keith will share his tips for speed blocking sweaters, scarves and shawls.

This stitch primarily consists of a knit-stitch knitted together with its “wrap,” a yarnover from the previous row. Come join the fun and learn some new knitting abbreviations such as “Bark” and “Burp”!

It is named after Fair Isle, a small island in the north of Scotland, that forms part of the Shetland islands. In this class, we will make a children’s hat composed of different colored hearts.
