|Warm Woolen Mittens, FREE pattern. |
Sample knit with Lanaloft, in the Roasted Pepper colorway.
The second pattern that I've recently published is the Pekin Watch Cap. This pattern is for a simple, sophisticated "ear-flap" hat, that can be knit with less than one skein of Malabrigo Worsted. The "ear-flaps" are created by adding short rows.

I also have several classes coming up. I will be teaching a two part, Two-at-a-Time Sock Class on January 25 and February 8th. On February 22nd, I will be teaching a class on short rows using the Pekin Watch Cap pattern. The details are at the top of this page. You can register by calling Knit & Knot at (563) 332-7378. You can find all of the classes offered at Knit and Knot by visiting their Classes page or calling the store.
Starting January 14th, I will be working at Knit & Knot on Tuesday evenings from 5pm to 8pm. Stop by to sit and knit with me. That would also be a great time to schedule a lesson, if you have been thinking about it!
So grab your knitting project, enjoy these last days of 2013, and have a very happy New Year!
