If knitting doesn’t feel woolly enough for you, let me introduce you to my friend, thrumming. If you don’t know what thrumming is, it’s the process of taking pieces of combed, raw wool and incorporating them into what you’re knitting. The result? A fluffy, warm, cocoon for your cold hands, toes, ears, etc.! In this class we will cover different ways to make and work your thrums, and the best kind of wool to use.
Level: Intermediate - must know how to knit in small circumferences and very comfortable with distinguishing knit stitches and purl stitches.
