Too many stitches, too few stitches, a dropped stitch–it happens to the best of us. This time on YarnCraft, Liz and Zontee share their own yarncrafting mishaps–and talk about lessons learned and insights gained.
We also share stories from listeners like you about knitting and crochet snafus, as well as advice on fixing common problems, like lifelines, purposely dropping stitches, and other tricks of the trade.
A book recommended is When Bad Things Happen to Good Knitters by Marion Edmonds & Ahza Moore, which was previously featured in the Lion Brand E-Newsletter.
Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life – Discover resources at the Learning Center on the NEW Lion Brand website, why YouTube can be a good way to learn a new skill, and what website Liz & Zontee go to when they can’t quite salvage that project in time to give it as a gift.
