Have you ever tried to organize all of your leftover yarns to find a basket full of odds and ends that you don’t know what to do with?
I recently attempted to organize my leftover yarn balls by color, then by category, then by fiber… and really I just wanted to use them!
Goodbye organizing, and Welcome to Stashbuster Mittens!
Join me at Yarnability to indulge in the world of creativity using all the odds and ends of yarn to create unique, one of a kind, fun mittens! This class will use techniques from The Mitten Handbook by Mary Scott Huff to discuss mitten anatomy, construction, and design. This title is a great resource to have in your knitting library.
This 2-part workshop will supply you with your own copy of The Mitten Handbook and 2 class meetings. Due to limited supplies, only 12 spaces are available, and no gift cards can be redeemed for this class.
Class Fee: $45 (plus tax)
· Spaces left for Stashbuster Mittens — Thursdays = 3
· Spaces left for Stashbuster Mittens — Saturdays = 2
Yarn: Bring in your stash yarn of various weights, we will combine yarns to use a worsted weight gauge for the project. If you don’t have stash yarn we have you covered with a variety of ready-made stash yarn boxes in various colors! $20 for stash yarn boxes. Due to limited supply of stash yarn boxes, no gift cards can be redeemed on this purchase.
Needles: US 5-US 8; depending upon your gauge. Your choice of circular knitting style. Use a 9″ circular, double point needles, two circulars, or magic loop. Suggest a needle size for the body of the mitten and one size smaller for the cuff.
