Over The Rainbow Yarn



You’ve done all the knitting; now what?  This class will cover everything you do after you bind off.  Washing, wet blocking, steam or mist blocking, seaming, and simple alterations, we’ll touch all the bases.  With some simple care, your finishing can make your knitwear look polished and professional.
