November 22, 2016 –
It’s that time of year when it’s not quite glove weather, but your hands are still cold. Meet Gully Gloves by Kelly McClure. Guest Instructor and S&B knit night ringleader MaryAnne Teal will lead you through the venture of knitting these springy & comfy hand warmers in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.
These gloves are knit from the bottom to the top with a worsted weight yarn. The garter cuff is knitted on to live stitches with no gusset or sewing required (WOOOHOOO!). This 2-session class will be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, and the same time again Tuesday, Nov. 15.
