Ever panic when you see a pattern begin with "Using a provisional cast on..." — or one that ends with "bind off loosely in rib" and wonder why they are asking for such specific instructions? Then after struggling to teach yourself a new cast on or bind off, you just give up and do it the one way you know for certain? This workshop will shed some light on when to use which cast on for certain projects and will explore the difference between aesthetic cast ons and functional ones. Plus, we'll make some great little one-hour projects to practice these techniques!

Featuring Chris ‘Citrus’ Sauthoff and Dustin Adams.

It is often heard in world music; its sympathetic tones marrying well with a wide range of musical genres. Chris ‘Citrus’ Sauthoff brings his signature style to the sitar – the soul of traditional Indian music. Dustin Adams adds in the heartbeat with the syncopated rhythm of the tabla. Enjoy the poetry and lyricism of these two perfectly paired instruments.
