This is a great opportunity for your children to work on knitting skills (which would be a perfect skill to have for sitting to listen to read alouds!), or even for you to brush up on old skills (or learn for the first time, much like I would need to do).
Here is information about the focus of the free online class:
Learn how to easily customize your knitting with short rows in the brand new, totally free, online Craftsy class, Short Rows, taught by knit designer Carol Feller. Explore new and creative ways to use shorts rows as Carol shows you how to raise the collar of a sweater, shape shoulders, hemlines, yokes, hats, scarves, and shawls. Work through four different methods of short rows — the traditional wrap and turn, Carol’s variation of the wrap and turn, Japanese short rows, and yarn over short rows — and when to use each technique. Short Rows is free, so there’s nothing to lose. Sign up now!
