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."
September's Mitten will be released September 1st 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.

Planning to cast on the September Mitten? Join us on Saturday, September 10th from 2:00 to 3:00 for this month's mitten. Please have your yarn wound prior to joining us.


*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


When knitting requires purling through the back loop, often the stitches stretch and look uneven.  
Solution: slip the stitch purlwise onto the right needle, than slip it back to the left needle knitwise, then purl. No more stretching.
