Knitting Community

Well, I have been working on a mitten knitting video series, and a Knit-A-Long so that we can all have mittens!!

I think the middle of winter is a perfect time to learn something new and quick to knit. This week I give a general outline of the course including supplies that you will need.

I'm totally behind on reading your posts, but I wanted to throw out there that I'm really excited about these videos! It's definitely the season to start thinking of knitting mittens, and I have a couple of patterns in mind that I want to try, so thank you for adding to the inspiration!

mimakelly, you can set your email settings to receive emails when there are new discussions or when new comments are made. Click on settings on the upper right portions of the page. Then click on Email. You can pick and choose what kinds of email notifications you want to receive. To tell the truth I have everything but when anyone joins the community and when a new member joins a KAL I'm in. I do get tons of emails from KP but then I'm in lots of KALs.

Luv the video's its like attending ones private class. How often will there be new posts on videos so i'll know when to check in. I've already got my 4" ribbing. I'm very anxious to move onto the next step.......? I hope future KAL's are video series also, I for one am a learner who needs to see how it's done as well as read. Thanks Kelley! (we share the same name I just spell mine with 1 e)

Victoria, I left you a message on Peggy's blog "Off in All Directions! ...." I hope it helps you decide how much yarn you need.

Kelley, you obviously chose a great new video series. Most can hardly wait for the next installment. ♥cheryl

I hope some one can help me. I have to buy yarn and I have no idea how much to buy for the kal and it says 32" for the length But what size. I will be ordering asap to keep up with everyone. I have not picked a pattern I will just go along like I did when we did socks together.

I haven't done mittens either!

Is there a particular pattern we are following? And what size needles should I use?

Congratulations, Susan the BLK! I have a 6 year old grandson and a 4 year old granddaughter. They are such blessings and fun to knit for! Many blessing to your family!
PS Swish DK makes nice Piggy mittens from ...and Snowman mittens ( I think that was from knitting pattern central...)

Hi I'm new to a KAL. I conveniently just purchased the "Mostly Mittens" book. I have knitted mittens in the past using DPN's but I always had trounble with the thumb..there was always a small hole that I would need to sew closed. I am looking forwards to using the magic loop method. this sounds like fun!!

This should be fun, and it looks like there are a lot of us interested. I've knitted so many Swedish Lovikka mittens on double point needes (everyone in the family has a pair and I've sold a lot too), but now I want to try knitting mittens with the magic loop technique. This is the perfect opportunity. I've tried Magic Loop on other things and didn't really like it, but now with an expert teacher, it might work and be a turning point for this old lady. I'm planning to knit a pair of fingerless mitts since Spring is just around the corner. Angel
