About this class: 

Does knitting a gauge swatch mystify you? Have you knit a gauge swatch and it ‘lied’ to you? Thought you had gauge, but your finished sweater grew or shrunk and didn’t fit? Do you wonder what it means to ‘block’ something? Well then, this class is for you! We will learn the ins and outs of gauge swatching, accurately measuring our gauge so that it doesn’t ‘lie’ to us, and how to block a variety of items. Knit up a swatch and join us!
