Every year we hear more than one person comment “I wish I knew how to knit mittens”. Well here is your chance. “Let’s Make Mittens I” is the first of a series of mitten workshops that will be offered at Yarns With A Twist this summer and continue into fall and winter.

The first workshop is just the basics. You will make one pair of simple mittens using either Yankee Design pattern (this pattern is worked on two straight needles) or Anne Norling's Basic Mittens on 4 Needles (for those of prefer knitting on four needles). Either pattern gives you the option of size and we are recommending that you use a worsted weight yarn.

This is not a learn to knit class, but a class for those who already know the basics (knit, purl, increase, decrease) and are ready to move forward.
Future “Let’s Make Mittens” Workshops will include reading patterns, cables, stranding and, even brioche. Of course knitting a hat to match, or compliment, your mittens is a must. “Let’s Make Hats” workshops will also be offered.
This is a 2 part class. 1st class will cover cast on, ribbing and thumb gusset. 2nd class will cover the thumb, hand, bind off and pick up for thumb.
Please purchase your supplies prior to class day (pattern, yarn, needles etc) so we are ready to go on the first day.
Suggested yarn is Andes by Euro yarn. Needle size as per gauge. (Sample mittens are 5st = 1 inch (worsted) but using size 5 needles).
Level: Intermediate - know the basics and ready to move forward.
Date: Part 1: Saturday, July 23rd Time: 9:30 - 11:30 am
Date: Part 2: Saturday, July 30th Time: 9:30 - 11:30 am
Instructor: Barb

Whether dressing up your jeans jacket or adding flair to dressier attire, Volan offers endless possibilities for fashionably warding off the chill of cool evenings or air conditioning. This versatile new design by Christiane is something between a scarf, shawl and wrap with a crescent shape that allows for many styling options.
Volan has double shaped ruffles on both edges and a two colored garter stitch body. Innovative construction techniques eliminate the need for short rows and picking up stitches.
When: Wednesday, August 24th, 7 - 9 pm

She doesn't remember what pattern she used
but was very happy with the results as was her granddaughter.

Martha Gerling used her stash yarn from Yarns With A Twist to create this
beauitful baby blanket for a baby due any day.
The afghan is called Rambing Rose by Cottage Creations.

Linda Breault made this adorable hat from one skein of Kauni from their
pattern called Lake Drive Hat both of which we have in the shop.
