ARE YOU IN THE LOOP?




YEAR OF MITTENS

In The Loop is all thumbs up for our participation in Kelbourne Woolens new year- long knit-a-long, a Year of Mittens all knit with Fiber Company's Cumbria Fingering. Each month a new pattern will be released. " There will be classic cables, interesting color work, and unique lace applications, all with a heavy dose of classic inspiration and historical information."  August 1st kicks off the campaign and you can purchase and download your pattern on Ravelry or through our Ravelry in-store program and every month of the campaign we will be hosting an hour-long get together to cast on, for participants only, and to learn a new technique associated with that month's pattern.
Each participant* will receive a small In The Loop project bag and special gift on us (when they arrive from the printers) for knitting along with us. 

First technique class will run Saturday, August 6th from 12:30 to 1:30. Please contact the shop to register and make sure your yarn is wound prior to the technique class.
*Note: Participants, with pattern in hand, will receive 15% off FC's Cumbria Fingering and you do not have to attend the monthly get together to receive the discount.

HEATHER'S HELPFUL HINTS


Are you using the right needle for the job? With so many well made needles available now, be sure to select the right material and shape for the yarn you are using.
For example, wood needles are considered to have more "grip", use these when you are using a slippery yarn. Metal needles are wonderful with most wool, especially plied wools. Also consider the points. Are you knitting with lace weight or single ply yarn ? Pointier tips are excellent for the job.
