You will need the following tools for this class:1) 300 g of bulky 100% wool yarn and double pointed needles (or magic loop alternative ) to achieve gauge. The yarn should NOT be superwash or bleached. I recommend Lopi Alafosslopi (100% Icelandic Wool); 100g / 109 y in natural white or grey
2) If you wish to make initials in a contrasting color on your mittens, please bring several yards of bulky yarn in color of your choice.
3) Steel brush, bucket or dish pan and natural soap for fulling
4) Please bring as well usual knitting tools like scissors, tapestry needle, and stitch markers.
Laura Ricketts lives in Indiana. She loves to play with color and design, and the knitting of the Sámi peoples in northern Scandinavia fits that bill while exciting her historically and culturally. She knits, crochets, spins and quilts. Lately, she has lectured and taught at Finnfest, Vesterheim Norwegian-American museum, ASI, and the Nordic Knitting Conference in Seattle. In between writing articles and patterns, she chases her three, school-age kids, shuttles them about and tries to attend all their events.
