Little Long Johns

If you have never used double pointed needles, or you’ve tried and not quite felt that you achieved a mastery of the process, then this is the class for you!  Double pointed needles (DPNs) are essential options for any kind of small circumference knitting such as sleeves, hats and mittens. It’s a great way to increase your confidence in knitting, and it will motivate you to make that beautiful fitted hat you’ve been eyeing.  Yes, we saw you.  You were looking at it. 

We will practice the art of DPNs by making Susan B. Anderson’s “Little Long Johns” Christmas ornaments and sipping some hot chocolate!  All levels of knitting are welcome, but you must be able to knit and purl!
