1pm-4pm Fingerless Mitts Session
This exciting class will be taught a few shorts blocks from Magpie Knits. The morning class will be dedicated to learning Roosimine knitting (Estonian colorwork). The afternoon class with be a colorwork class and we will learn how to make fingerless mittens. The hat we will make is designed by Tanis and is called A Short Reprise. This hat requires DK yarn and US6 and US7 16" circular needles.
There is a little homework that we will share once you register for the class.
The afternoon session will be focused on learning the secrets of colorwork and we will make two-color fingerless mitts using the Louisa Pattern by Tanis Grey. These mitts use Aran weight yarn and US 6 Flexiflips or DPN's.
The classes will be held in the iconic Bradbury building on the Downtown Mall now called Vault Virginia on the corner of 3rd Street SE and the mall. Look for a Magpie sign on the mall our front. The class will be held in the old bank lobby and tables will be spread out to enable social distancing. We will have pastries and coffee in the morning and a nice boxed lunch catered from Harvest Moon Catering.
We ask that everyone respect the health and wellness of each other by being vaccinated and wearing a mask when you are not eating or drinking.
