“Schrodinger’s Knitting: Taking Your Knitting Outside the Box and Bringing It to Life.”
Often in knitting, there are many opinions on what is the right way or the wrong way to do something, what is easy, what is hard, and what shouldn’t even be thought of attempting without a stiff drink (looking at you, steeking). But when we start to look at the logic of these statements, they unravel.
A lot of what we know about knitting is based on tradition, and that tradition says that we knit something a certain way because that’s how it’s always been done. But just because something has been done that way doesn’t mean it *has* to be done that way. Knitting has *traditions*, but that doesn’t mean knitting has *rules*. In this talk, we’ll discuss various ways to take your knitting outside the box, make it unruly, and make it do exactly what you want it to.
So if you want to free your mind, get messy and find a whole new approach to knitting, then this lecture should be top of your list.
The Woollinn Team.
