Nina,
I do free consults at the Village Knitters by appointment on Friday afternoons from 4-5pm – I’d be happy to walk you through the dropped stitches there.
If that time doesn’t work, let me know – figure something else out.
You are welcome to join us for this coming retreat next week – come for the day of workshops or stay at the Boonville Hotel.
Jessica
