Weight, Gauge & Skeins
Kelli Cole Ladwig


You are a new knitter or crocheter. You may or may not completed your first project. Someone taught you how to knit or crochet and gave you yarn and a hook or needles. Now you would like to start a project on your own. You have a pattern but it calls for yarn you are not familiar with, and it talks about a gauge swatch. Can I use a different yarn? What do you mean there are different needles or hooks? Why can’t I use the one I learned on for everything? We were all new fiber artists at some point. We all went to our first yarn crawl, shop hop, fiber festival, or guild festival where we saw yarns we never knew existed. This class will guide you through all of those questions and more.

Things to bring: No prerequisites except a love of fiber in your hands. Anything you might have a question about. Note taking materials.
