MarketSessions20132013Kellie NussKellie learned to knit as a child and has been designing and teaching knitting professionallyfor nine years. She loves to help students feel confident and content with their knitting.Friday 10:30am - 11:30amtt4 look, no double points Come and learn the two popular ways of using longcircular needles to knit on small circumferences, such as socks, sleeves, baby hats, and thelike. You’ll never have to use double points again unless you want to! The first method usestwo 24-inch circulars. The second way, commonly called The Magic Loop, uses one long (32-40 inch) circular needle. Both methods can be used on any circumference of knitting, enablingknitters to go from cuff to toe of a sock or brim to crown of a hat without ever having to changeneedles. Knitters should already be comfortable with knitting in the round or have at leasttried it before class. Materials: all needles should be US 7 or 8: two 24-inch circular needles, each of adifferent material if possible (such as one of metal and one of bamboo); one 32- or 40-inch circular needleof any material and few yards of smooth, plain, #4 (worsted) weight yarn, wool or wool-blend preferred.yarnweightKEYSuper FineSockFingeringBabyFineSportBabyLIGHTDKLight-Worsted(worsted)MEDIUMWorsted(worsted)AfghanAranBULKYChunkyCraftRugSUPER BULKYBulkyRovingFriday 12:30pm - 1:30pm or Saturday 3:30pm - 4:30pmTT2 Continental Knitting Continental knitting involves tensioning the yarn in the handholding the unworked stitches (for most people this is the left hand) and using the other needleto pick stitches through in a quick and efficient manner. It is a great technique to have in yourknitting repertoire. It can solve a multitude of knitting problems or just be a good companion tothe way you already knit. Your instructor will teach the basics of tensioning the yarn and pickingthe stitches rather than throwing. We will learn the knit and purl stitches and have time topractice this useful method of knitting. Materials: Any yarn and appropriate needles for sampling.Friday 2:00pm - 3:00pm or Sunday 11:30am - 12:30pmTT8 Knitting in Both Directions Knitting in both directions allows the knitter to always belooking at the right side, even if you are knitting flat. The work is never turned, and the knittercleverly works both knit and purl stitches from the same side. This saves time when working ona very small number of stitches as for bobbles or entrelac, and it saves effort when working ona very large number of stitches. Your instructor will teach the basics of working knit and purlstitches from the right side of the work. There is time for practice and a discussion of how touse this technique in your every-day knitting. Materials: Any yarn and appropriate needles forsampling.Friday 3:30pm - 4:30pm or Saturday 2:00pm - 3:00pmCC2 Double Knit in Color Double knitting in color creates a two-sided, double-thickfabric with an image on one side and the exact negative of the image on the other side.
