OOPS! Get your knitting back on track!

OOPS! is a beginner’s guide to getting your knitting back on track, presented by Alissa Barton the Knitting Fairy. In this 3-hour class we will cover many of the mistakes encountered by new knitters and talk about how to get your knitting back on track without pulling everything back out.

At the end of class you will also get links to videos to refer to later.
