Warming up to Linen with Elizabeth Doherty - May 14th or June 17th
Instructor: Elizabeth Doherty
Warming up to Linen Class
Made from the long, straight fibers of the flax plant's stem, linen is cool and drapey, the perfect thing for knitting warm-weather garments. But if you've never knit with an inelastic fiber, linen yarns can feel pretty different the first time you try them.
This three-hour class will focus on getting comfortable with linen—how to avoid over-tensioning the yarn; understanding how linen fabric transforms with washing and wearing, and how to predict the look and hand of your finished fabric; as well as techniques for joining new skeins, weaving in ends, and making your stitches in linen look just plain beautiful.
