Do you really know what size to make? How?
Have you noticed how gauge changes when blocked?
Do you have favorite needles and yarn that you go too?
Do you own an iron or a steamer?
Do you go treat different yarns differently?
How bummed would you be if your project changed when blocking?
Fifth Studio Chat with Jill Wolcott Knits
Fifth Studio Chat is a conversation about why we knit and how to get the most out of our knitting time. Are you a solid-block-of-time knitter or are you a grab-time-when-I-can knitter? Do you plan your projects or . . . ?
Fifth Studio Chat
You can come via video (I’ll have lipstick on!) or just come to chat (no video). Sign up to get the log-in information. Use any device or computer. Come with answers to the questions on the first tab. We’ll see where we go from there.
The invitation to the GoToMeeting login is the pdf you will get the link to after purchasing this.
Studio Chats are every other week and cost $5 to join. This is the last one for 2020!
Why Studio Chat?
I love talking about knitting, and yarn, and what knitting brings to our lives. For me knitting is a metaphor for life, but we aren’t always paying attention to it that way. So the Studio Chats might be considered spiritual lifting up, and polishing your skills, or looking to make your knitting more satisfying or more fulfilling. Or just talking about your next project, what you want to learn, what your knitting world is like. Or maybe just what’s for dinner! Also, show and tell. I am a solitary knitter. Mitch is pretty much not interested.
You can ask me questions. You know I probably have an opinion. Blocking. I am a crazed blocker. Things get wet blocked and then steamed blocked. Everything. No exceptions. Six reasons:
- Wet block lets the knitting relax into its final state. Just as we are better after a shower or bath, so is our knitting;
- Steam blocking puts a final polish on your project that cannot be gained any other way;
- Who knows what got knit into our project!
- I spent all that time making it this far;
- It gives me a chance to review and decide final finishing steps;
- It is the big reveal!
Studio Chats Beginning in 2021
January 4: Return of Studio Chats! 5 pm PST/PDT
Topics for 2021 TBA!
I will also be beginning a series of Chats called Becoming the Knitter You Want to Be. A little more depth; talking specifically about making your knitting practice matter in ways you want it to.
I also will be starting a one-on-one consulting service, Jill Wolcott Knits Studio Sessions. You can set time with me to help you solve issues, professional, knitting, design-related, or other life-related advice. The first 15 minutes are free, then you sign up for additional blocks of time at $12.50/15 min. I will also do small groups (you put the group together) and will give you a quote on cost.
Jill Wolcott Knits Studio Sessions: Be The You You Want to Be. Sign ups will open later this fall.
Outside North America?
I am using PayHip because they do VAT! You can sign up there and get exactly what I have here in terms of downloads and information. So click over to there. I will likely figure out how to put the button here, but until then just use the link.
