Want to find a cure for the February blahs? Here at Handknit Yarn Studio, we think there is no better way than to add some vibrant woollen colourwork to your crafting projects. If you have been thinking about putting some new skills in your knitting toolkit, this is the perfect month to try it. Once you understand a couple of basic techniques — such as yarn floats and chart work, you are good to go.
To help you understand this skill, Kate and Tracy are offering some free “MIni Clinics” on Sunday, February 4th and 11th from 1:30-2 pm. We will help you understand a couple of basic concepts and show you to make your work look great. We have a very simple project for you to try as well called Hearts Cup Cozy - a very simple Valentine’s Day coffee cup cozy — that will give you the confidence to tackle bigger projects like mittens and sweaters. GULP!
