We started by raiding our stashes for odds and ends of worsted weight yarn and put those scraps and scintillae to good use!
I designed a quickie fingerless mitt pattern that we could all follow [get the scintillae pattern for free on ravelry].
We had fun experimenting with cast on techniques, making colorful and subtle stripes, using favorite stitches, and planning for some fabulous embellishments to add later [check out the than 5,000 “Applique/Embellishments” in the “Components” category on ravelry].
Some of us started matchy matchy mitts and others mixed it up with lots of colors and stitches. I haven’t used much fun fur or eyelash yarn in the past, but I just couldn’t resist! Of course, then we needed matching hats 😉 We got off to a good start on our projects and had a splendid afternoon together!
