Thrummed Mittens, with Julie Herold
Last Fall/Winter this was our most popular class, so we decided to offer it again this year! Thrumming is a knitting technique that involves placing tufts of wool in your knit stitches to make the insides warm and squishy. This is an intermediate class, participants should be comfortable knitting on double pointed needles. The pattern we will be using can be seen here.

$20.00 plus supplies.
This class is currently full. Please call the shop to be added to the waitlist.
Toe-Up Socks, with Linda Peterson
This could be your first ever sock or just your first toe-up version. We will start with a nifty cast on and work toe increases in the first session. The second session will involve inserting an after-thought heel. Choose double point needles – or magic loop. We think you’ll love this method that allows for great yarn usage and replaceable heels and toes.
Sundays October 29 11:30-1:30 & November 12, 11:30-1:30.
$40.00 plus supplies.
