Store Sample at The Knitting Garage
The Glacerie Shawl......came out beautiful if I may say so myself...Come by to see it "in person" at the shop and to pick up yarns to start your own :)
I started on a new Store sample in Blue Sky Alpaca Petites "Windsor Mitts".
As summer is winding down, this is a good project to get ready for those chilly mornings when you want to wear something stylish to keep your hands warm.
I am offering a class on these on Saturday September 6th from 10:30 am to 12 noon and for those of you who rather come to a class while the children are at school, I will also give the same class on Wednesday September 10th from 10:30 am to 12 noon. The class is $35 and includes the $8 pattern. I will explain to you the "LT" stitch which gives this mitten the unique look and I will show you two methods of knitting in the round. One is with DPN's and one with two circular needles. Both are favorites of mine. I will show you how to avoid getting the gap between needles with both methods. When you look at any of my store samples you see a smooth even round of stitches. How did I do that? You will have to sign up prior for the Wednesday Class (as I am not usually in Rhinebeck on Wednesdays), but have the option to make a last minute decision and walk in for the Saturday Class. However all classes are limited to four participants.
I will be posting the rest of the class schedule for this Fall shortly.
