Expert Advice for Successful Projects!

Good GradesThere are a ton of variables when plotting your next knitting project. All those questions can be a little daunting. Will a particular yarn yield the expected result? Will a certain style of sweater look as well in real life as it does in those beautifully styled photos on Ravelry? Which size to make?

We have two fabulous lectures with local designer Mer Stevens (Pom Pom) to answer these questions and more! Not only does Mer write patterns for lovely sweaters and accessories, her years of experience as a LYS (local yarn store) worker give her a wealth of knowledge about fiber, weight, and all those subjects that can seem so mysterious.
