Summer 2016 KAL

We are going to start another KAL in a few weeks. For this KAL you get to choose the pattern you want to make from Ambah O'Brien's collection. Ambah and I are working out a few things so please wait a few days to purchase any patterns. And there will be prizes!

This awesome shawl is called Mookari (pattern purchased on Ravelry) and could be my choice for the KAL.

These are Fiona Ellis' Sparrow Lake Mittens. Fiona will be one of our instructors this year at Camp and will be teaching a class on Saturday afternoon where you can design your own mittens.

Thumbs Up for Mittens
In the 1st part of this workshop we will look at mitten construction; including ways that the thumb gusset & the top of the mitten can be worked. Fiona will review a variety of increases and decreases – knowledge that you will be able to apply to other types of projects. But that’s only the beginning….

In the 2nd part of the class you will use the swatch worked in “Creating Cables” (or another pattern swatch you may like to bring) as a springboard to devise creative ways of incorporating the patterning into a mitten of your own design.

This workshop is geared towards knitters who have a little experience right up to those who are very adventurous

Think of the fun you can have with this.
