Seconds with Heather Peterson
What makes your knitting workshops di erent from other workshops? As well as group workshops, I offer individual knitting and crochet tuition: customers are able to select the knitting or crochet workshop theme and book in a time that suits them. Three things we’ll learn? 1. How to choose yarns and materials that best suit your project. 2. Selecting colours for Fair Isle. 3. Saving your work when something goes wrong. Why do you love teaching? I love sharing my own knowledge, especially when it empowers others to create things. It can be very helpful to have someone knowledgeable on-hand when learning a new technique. What questions do you always get? What is magic loop knitting? How do I count my rows? How do I keep an even tension when knitting Fair Isle? Your top 3 tips? 1. Use the best materials you can afford. 2. Think hard >L!ÕÌ$wÌ$>%`$V!#!ÕÀ$Liv!Ài$V>ÃÌ'%}$!%$>$ big project for yourself. 3.
