Class Introduction

Hey there, I'm Vickie Howell. Welcome to Knit Maker 102. I'm so excited that you're here because if you are here, you've already been knitting at least for a little bit of time. This class is great for you if you've already made maybe a project or two or three and you're ready step up your skills just skosh or maybe you're a knitter from beyond, not beyond. I gotta start that again (laughing). Not from space. Okay, I'm gonna pick it up. Ready? Hey there, I'm Vickie Howell. Welcome to Knit Maker 102. I'm thrilled that you're here because if you're here, that means that you've already been knitting just a little bit. So that means that you're hooked, and I love that. We are gonna go over a ton of stuff in this class, but this class is perfect for you if you have knit maybe a project or two or three and you just wanna step up your skills, you're ready. Maybe you need a refresher course. You'd been knitting a ton, but then you set it down for a few years and maybe just want a few reminders...

, or really just for anyone that just loves fiber and needles. So were gonna go over a bunch of stuff in this class, like I mentioned. We're gonna cover some increases, how to block, which is how to shape things at the end. We're gonna do some mosaic color work, some lace stitch, some puff stitches, tons of stuff that goes beyond just basic knitting and purling.
