Wärme Mitts with Vickie Howell
The geometric look of log cabin knitting continues to make an old technique look modern, especially when it's applied to a must-have accessory, wrist warmers!
In Vickie's latest book, The Knit Vibe, contributing designer and owner of Ewe Ewe Yarns, Heather Walpole, created the greatest little pair of graphic gloves! The Wa'rme Mitts employ playfully colorful log-cabin rows combined with clever thumb shaping. Vickie will show how to work the techniques, talk about how color choices greatly affect the look of the project, and get students well on their way towards finishing one of their mitts!
A copy of The Knit Vibe: A Knitter’s Guide to Creativity, Community, and Well-being for the Mind, Body and Soul will be included in the class.

Note: A $20 fee for mitt kit (Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted in the color way shown, plus a select number of other color options.) will be collected in class.
