The Tip Jar

What's the difference between Tinking and Frogging? First, only knitters can tink. To tink (aka "knit" backwards) is to unknit one stitch at a time. Frogging is something both knitters and crocheters can do - it means you "rip-it, rip-it" - as the frog says. Ripping out completely? That means you sent it to the Frog Pond.

We're here to help prevent excessive frogging! If you're feeling like you need to rip back more than a couple of rows, please come see us! We can fix almost any mistake without ripping out - even in complicated knitting patterns! And often, we can get you back on track with your crochet without ripping too far, either. We don't charge unless it's going to take more than 15 minutes of staff time, and the VAST majority can be fixed in only a few minutes.

Brioche Basics

Sunday, April 7 & 14 from noon-2 pm, $33

Brioche Stitch is all the rage right now! It makes a beautifully soft, puffy rib that just cries out to be snuggled. Many knitters find Brioche intimidating, but Wendy's here to simplify it and make it easy to understand.

The first session will start with basic Brioche Rib in a single color, then in two colors. In the second session, we'll learn to increase and decrease in Brioche and to read a Brioche chart while working a fun Brioche scarf or cowl.
