HOLIDAY KNIT 2: FELTED OVEN MITTS • Advanced Beginner Knitting, November 3, 10 & 17, Saturdays$30.00
The holidays are all about cooking for many of us. Memories are formed in the kitchen - stealing a little lick or swiping a roll before dinner is served, the smell of sweet potatoes and savory herbs, checking on the oven and wishing it was time to eat! It is from our love of these memories that we are offering these Felted Oven Mitts. You can coordinate them with any palette and add stripes if you fancy. Don't worry - these are totally machine washable too!
Here at Cattywampus, we are all about the joy and specialness of having a handmade holiday, which is made even better when making together! We are offering a different knit and crochet project every month in October, November, and December in preparation for the holidays. Each one is intended to be a fairly easy pattern so that you can make more than one by the end of each month. We will meet up three times a month for each project. There is a class instruction option for those who need support and guidance throughout the project ($30 for three sessions, 3-4 pm) or a knit/crochet-a-long option for confident knitters/crocheters who simply want camaraderie (free, 4-5 pm). You will have the chance to win a $30 gift certificate raffle prize on the last day of each project. Raffle tickets are earned by showing up to the scheduled dates and for every completed project. The more you come and the more you make... the greater your chances are to win! There will be a grand raffle prize of $100 at the end of all the holiday projects on Friday, December 21st at our knit group Cattywampus Christmas party.
