MiniVersity Course: Small Scale Knitting

The latest D. Thomas MiniVersity course led by IGMA Artisan Julie Steiner from RidiculousTinyThings (Instagram) was just posted on YouTube. Julie is a micro scale knitting and crochet artist from Philadelphia who crafts some of the most awesome tiny scale works you've ever seen!

In this course, Julie presented “Downsizing Your Knitting: Tips and Tricks for Knitting in Small Scale” which helped answer the question: Do you want to take your knitting tiny?" She walked folks through her personal knitting journey and shared what she’s learned (and created!) along the way including tools and material sources, choosing patterns and final finishing tricks.

This course also addresses scaling and how to achieve a properly sized piece and is for all all skill levels including those who are familiar with working in full scale! You'll leave with terrific information and to help you move to knitting smaller!

This should be awesome!
