All Wound Up University Beginnings:
The global pandemic of 2020 caused everyone to rethink getting together in groups. A huge part of All Wound Up prior to this was our robust list of in-person classes. After much planning, filming, and designing, we have created All Wound Up University.
The online, self-paced format allows you to take our most popular classes in the comfort of your own home. Fit the class to your schedule and personality. Maybe you prefer to go through the lessons all in one sitting like you would in a traditional class setting. Or, you might prefer to work through the class a little at a time, spanning a week or more. Are you a night owl or an early bird? With these classes, you can choose the time that suits you best. AWU-Univeristy video tutorials don’t expire, so you can take the class repeatedly, or review a specific part when you need it. And any updates we make to videos will come to you automatically with our web-based video hosting.
When you sign up for an AWU-U class, you’ll have 2 options:
The Digital Class option includes a PDF download of your lesson plan, a link to lesson videos, and a supply list. The video links and downloads will be emailed to you.
The Digital Class + Supply Kit option includes everything from the Digital class, but also provides you with a color printout of the PDF lesson plan, and yarn to complete the lessons and/or class project(s). Additional supplies may be included depending on the class. The video links and downloads will be emailed to you. Your supply kit can be picked up from AWU (free!) or mailed to you for the cost of postage.
What if I need help?
You are always welcome to email us with questions (). We respond within 24 hours.
You can call or visit the shop during our open hours, however email is our preferred first step in answering your questions.
That way we ensure that you are speaking with either Nona or Leslie, the owners of AWU.
We are excited to present this new learning opportunity. Growing your knitting and crochet skills has never been more accessible. And in time, we plan to expand our class options.
What will I learn in Fixing Mistakes?
There are 14 lessons in this class, including:
Putting Stitches Back on Needles, Fixing Twisted Stitches, Recognizing and Fixing Skipped Stitches, Counting Rows, Learning to Read Your Knitting, Fixing Dropped Stitches (in both Garter and Stockinette), Fixing a Mis-Crossed Cable, Tinking/Frogging/Starting Over, Joining to Work in the Round, Fixing a Twisted Join, Placing a Lifeline, Dealing with Ladders, Gauge, and Tips for Following Patterns.
The focus is on learning to read your knitting, and understanding knitting fundamentals. Naturally, the more you understand about the "why" of knitting, the easier it becomes to fix the "how" when things go awry.
Necessary Skills to take the class: You should be able to knit and purl.
