And turn it into this. Or at least that's the plan. Class members have to bring a small knitted tube to class, and I'll (theoretically) walk them through sewing and cutting the steeks, picking up stitches for sleeves and bands, and finishing a doll-size sweater. I know that 4 hours won't be enough for everyone to finish, but I hope to give them enough info to continue on their own (along with handouts). I think it'll be fun (if anyone signs up for the class, that is). (by the way- the little sweater hasn't been blocked yet. It should be nice and straight by class time. I used Cascade 220 Quatro yarns.)

I'm sort of proud of myself- I don't have to teach my two new workshops for another week and a half (see link at the side of the page for NCFF), and I actually did not wait until the last minute to start getting ready. I spent most of the day thinking through the process, and doing sample knitting for the introduction to steeking class, where students will take this...
