If you’ve never made a pair of mitts before, a Mitt-A-Long is a great place to start, we’ll walk you through each step and you can ask questions at any time. Or it’s a great way to get a little motivation to start & finish a pair of mitts before Christmas or even spring arrives.
There will be helpful hints in the form of videos, blog posts and the opportunity to chat in the forum and on this website. We really welcome questions and love to get feedback about how you are getting on with your knits, so check in with us at:
