Hi everyone! My name is Lark and I'll be the host for our next meetup. Perhaps you have already met me at a previous S'n'B?
I've been asked by a few people to do a double-pointed needle (DPN) knitting workshop for Stitch 'n' Bitch. Since Stina is out of town for our next gathering and she needed a meetup host, I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to host and to teach the workshop.
*Please post in the comments if you are interested in participating in the workshop so I know approximately how many to expect*
If you just want to hang out and work on other stuff, that's cool too!
For the workshop, we are going to make the ultimate fall accessory: wrist warmers!
We're going to be making the Voodoo wrist warmers from Knitty.com
These are very straight forward and perfect for the beginning knitter, or someone who doesn't have any experience with DPNs.
Please bring the following materials for the workshop. For shopping, I recommend Litet Nystan at Sankt Paulsgatan 20, Södermalm or Ljungqvist's Garn at Karlbergsvägen 10, Odenplan and other locations.
If you have any questions, please post in the comments!
- 3.50mm double pointed needles (I personally prefer wood) or whatever size matches the recommended needle size of your yarn.
- 100g yarn in color of your choice. Needs to create a gauge of 20 - 22 stitches/10cm (check the yarn package or ask someone in the store to help pick one). In UK/US this is called Worsted/DK.
