I checked out a semi-cool place near me called Knit Sewing Club. I
guess they're huge in Japan (like over 60 locations there). Here in
Torrance, we have 2 (1 Japanese only, one English). The idea is cool,
the techniques are cool, the designs are attrocious (all drained with
the "mature woman" IMO. Way to frumpy for me!).
One awesome tip I did pick up, though, I thought I'd pass along: when
working with knits, it's not a great idea to pin with…normal pins.
They can put holes in the fabric, snags, etc. It's much easier to pin
with CLOTHES pins! Pin your fabric together just as you would with
straight pins, remove as you go, and voilà!
