Learn to make simple, warm and waterproof mittens out of wool. Suitable for knitters who are confident beginners or better. We will focus on casting on, working with double point needles, and making the thumb. The Pattern will be provided, yarn and needles will be available for purchase, or bring your own. We will need approx 200 yds of worsted weight wool (not acrylic, cotton, or superwash) and size 10 double point needles. If you are a fast knitter (or choose a small size mitten to knit) you may finish your mittens in class. Instructions for finishing and felting will be provided to students at the end of class.
