What It's All About

We love the work of Kathy Lewinsky aka "Just Crafty Enough", especially when it comes to mittens. Kathy has graciously provided us all with the "plans" for 24 unique Scandinavian style mini-mittens for an advent calendar. Each numbered mitten has a unique, charted pattern and is roomy enough to hold treats; small enough to make a beautiful garland. Start now! You can make a mitten per day! In this three-part class you'll learn: Scandinavian "braiding", stranded colour work (working with two colours at the same time), and how to read a colour work chart. Kitchener stitch, duplicate stitch and i-cord techniques will also be demonstrated and you'll have a chance to practice these new skills on a sample piece. We'll also provide a materials kit for your first mitten to get you off to a great start.
