A comfy chair, a cup of something yummy, and your knitting:

& Refresher Sessions
Would you like to learn to knit? Do you know how to knit but need a refresher on how to cast on? Would a reminder of how to purl, or how to pick up a dropped stitch or how to weave in ends make you pick up your needles again and finish that ancient project? Any or all of these things can be accomplished by attending our beginning knitting sessions. You choose which sessions to attend and how many you need!

SNAPDRAGON FLIP-TOP MITTENS
These are the best mittens every: warm, beautiful, and practical! The cable pattern, which is both written and charted, is very pretty and fun to do.

Make a loop for a button or not, your choice.
