LEARN KNIT FINISHING

LEARN KNIT FINISHING TECHNIQUES 
When we explore knitting finishing techniques, it helps  to understand how one defines "finishing"  Is it SEWING SEAMS?  WEAVING IN ENDS?  BLOCKING?  BUTTON HOLES?   ADDING SELVAGE STS. 
Many patterns will not specify how to sew the seams, how to weave in the ends, or how to block the work.   Once the needles are put down, all of the fun is over.   Let Lana help you learn to finish your projects so they look professional.  IT can ALSO be fun!
 

INTARSIA - Knitting in Color

KNITTING IN COLOR  - INTARSIA with Deb Abrahams
  Intarsia is a color-work technique used to create basic geometric shapes or complicated pictures in a knitted piece.  Intarsia patterns can be worked in as few as two colors or as many as needed for a given design.  Unlike Fair Isle knitting, in which small repeating patterns are created by alternating two strands of yarn in different colors across a row, intarsia knit designs are generally free-form, & each area of color is worked from an individual ball, bobbin, or length of yarn.  Learn color block knitting with Deb, plus tips for minimizing working in yarn ends & dealing
with long floats. 
Materials required. 3 smooth contrasting yarns, knitting needles of suitable gauge.
