Uppingham Summer School
9 June 2009 Anne
This machine-knitting course has been much sought after and expert Beryl Jarvis is the tutor. Brother punchcard machines are available or, if you prefer, you can bring your own machine. With Uppingham Yarns nearby, this is a good time to purchase your yarn and learn. Materials will be available at a cost around £10 to £12, or you may bring your own. Why not join in the fun and have a full week of machine knitting hands on?
On Monday and Tuesday you’ll make a small garment including hems, shaping with tools and holding position, plus neckbands, making up and so on. Basics are there for beginners and more experienced knitters can try intarsia and cables. Wednesday and Thursday will be two days of ribber work including setting up, basic ribs, buttonholes, shaping and knitting a variety of ribbed fabrics including jacquard. Beginners and those who want to can continue with the project from Tuesday if they choose. As every machine can produce a variety of lace fabrics, Friday will be a lace day covering as many variations of machine knitted lace as possible.
