My Sister Knits has a multitude of knitting classes in October and you can read about two of them here today! Classes offer a supportive, friendly environment to learn new skills and make new fiber friends!
One of the benefits of these mitts is the fact that they can be worn completely covering your fingers or folded back, to set those digits free! These are knit with worsted weight yarn; the pattern suggests size 7 needles.These warm mitts knit up quickly with a garter rib pattern consisting of two rounds. Round 1 is a P2 K2 pattern and Round 2 is knit all the stitches. You will learn how to make a thumb gusset and how to finish the thumb. This is reassuring practice for picking up stitches as there are only 10, 12, or 14 stitches to pick up, depending on your size!Lambing Mitts, designed by Veronika Jobe are marvelous gifts and the holidays will soon be upon us!Julie Conway will teach this two-session class on Saturdays Oct. 13th and 20th from 9am until 11am.Call the shop at 970.407.1461 or register online!
