It’s the perfect time of year for fingerless mitts. When we get that fall chill in the air, I always bust out my fingerless mitts for walking around town, driving, and for sitting at my computer typing! It’s also the time of year when small and portable projects come in handy! If you’re anything like us here at Stash, you’re probably looking for some of these projects to focus on during the hectic holiday season.
Sheila has designed these beautiful fingerless mitts and will be teaching knitters the ins and outs of twisted stitches and i-cords on Sunday November 11th from 12:30-3:30. The cost for the class is $35 and includes a copy of the pattern.
Since the holiday knitting season is upon us (deep breaths, try not to freak out!), these would make a perfect gift for a special someone on your gift list. Of course, you could always knit them for yourself! In fact, we definitely encourage you to knit something special for yourself this time of year!
