Short Rows: This handy technique involves working only part of the total number of stitches in a row.  When turning around on an  incomplete row, some type of extra stitch needs to be worked to prevent the formation of holes visible from the right side of the work.  Forget any myths about the horrors of short rows you may have heard.  We will try our hands at Wrap-and-Turn, Yarnover, Japanese, and if time permits, Shadow wraps.  There really is nothing to be afraid of!  Please bring light-colored, worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles, a few stitch markers and a safety pin or locking ring marker or two.
