Thrummed Slippers - $40

Saturdays, September 23rd & 30th, 12-2p

There is nothing as cozy as a pair of thrummed slippers! Thrumming is a technique used to add little bits of unspun wool to your stitches so that the inside of your slipper is super soft and warm. In this class, you'll not only learn how to work thrums into your knitting, but you'll learn several other skills as we work this pattern together. The pattern includes sizes for the whole family and these make great gifts!
