New thrum kits have arrived

Posted by on Jan 30, 2014 |

Every time I receive an order from Fleece Artist I am upset that I didn’t order more. Today is no exception. More thrum kits arrived and they are stunningly beautiful. I already have a pair on the go from the last class but really want to make more. In fact, I’d like to hoard all of these kits for myself. Why not save me from myself by signing up for the thrum mitten class February 10th?

The class is $55 and that includes two hours of instruction and a kit from Fleece...

Another thrum workshop

Some of us were a bit more anxious than others to get going on the knitting and didn’t complete making all the thrums as the teacher Patrick suggested. However, we all came away with the knowledge of how to finish the mittens. I’ve had a number of requests to run the class again so will look in to scheduling that for early to mid-February. If you’re interested in being put on the waiting list email me at ragrugs@hotmail.com and I’ll add you to the list. We’ll keep the cut off at 12 people since that worked so well this time.
