In this class we’ll be taking it to the streets! After a brief introduction to what ergonomics is all about and common pitfalls for knitters, we’re picking up our needles and knitting on the go. We will walk to local venues where your knitters like to hang out, and we’ll examine ways to make these places more ergonomically friendly. Knitters will learn to knit while walking, and of course we’ll be knitting as we walk between locations! This is lots of fun and very practical for today’s on-the-go knitter.
