The Holidays always sneak up on me, and this can lead to a little panic. There is something so special about handmade gifts, but it’s almost impossible to find time to make them during an already busy season. If you’re like me, I have a couple of great suggestions for upcoming classes at Twisted. These classes focus on exciting techniques learned through fast, satisfying projects. The finished objects make fabulous last minute gifts, even for yourself!
Tofino Cowl – The 2 Hour Project is Tuesday, December 1, from 6:00-7:30pm. Join Kat and learn an interesting stitch while making this cozy cowl. Kat isn’t kidding – made with super bulky wool, this cowl really whips up in a couple of hours. It’s the perfect solution to crunch time gift knitting, and makes for luxurious instant gratification when you need a treat just for you.
Michele’s Intro to Steeking – The Bucket List Coffee Cuff or Mug Rug is Monday, December 7, from 5:30-8:00pm. There’s no technique that causes knitters to shudder harder than steeking, or cutting your work. Pick up Michele’s fun Bucket List pattern, work up a fast circular color stranded piece as homework, then come to class ready to cut! Michele will help you fearlessly steek your work to create an adorable cuff or mug rug to keep winter beverages cozy.
