Join us for a fun virtual evening of darning and mending. In this 2 hour workshop you will learn how to mend holes and weak points in your knitting. We will cover basic woven darning, swiss darning (a.k.a. duplicate stitch) and how to use needle felting as a darning technique.
$95 includes all supplies needed for mending (Canadian made darning mushroom, darning needles, yarn for darning, small amount of fibre, needle felting needle)
Please call (604-874-9665) or stop by the shop to register.
Bring any store-bought or hand knit socks with holes or weak points, as well as other knitting you may have questions about!
Supplies for homework swatch: Use 5 mm needles and a light colour of Quince & Co. Lark or 4 mm needles and a light colour of Quince & Co. Chickadee (please do not substitute yarn, as some substitutions will be too difficult to work with) and prepare the swatch below.
Stockinette Stitch Swatch
Cast on 40 stitches.
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Purl
Repeat rows 1 and 2 until your swatch is 5-6" long. Bind off.
Please also bring a set of double-pointed needles with you to class in a size (or two) smaller than the needles you used to knit your swatch (4 or 4.5 mm for those knitting their swatches in Lark and 3.75 or 3.5 mm for those using Chickadee).
