Thrummed Mitten Class

First Baptist Church of Ann Arbor
  • This event has passed.

Last February, one of our dear pastors, Stacey Simpson Duke, passed away. She was a marvelous knitter and often spun roving into yarn before sitting with a project. A cozy knitted mitten pattern has been found in which one can incorporate pieces of Stacey’s roving. We have wool roving of Stacey’s that is ready to be made into something beautiful. 

All knitters are welcome to join us to make thrums from roving and weave them into mittens. The class will be held at Spun on two consecutive Thursdays, March 7 and 14 from 3:30-5:30. We are honored to have Carol Ullmann, creator of the Thrummed Mittens pattern, as our instructor. On February 22, there will be an initial gathering of participants at FBC in the Memorial lounge from 3:30 till 5:30. We will review the pattern and start the homework. Stacey’s roving will be available for purchase; the cost of the class at Spun is $85. We do not want the cost of this class to be a barrier for anyone; please connect with Xan as needed. 

To sign up for the class, please click the purple “Sign Up” button. Once our class list is set (max 8 attendees), we will email the group to confirm your registration. Once you have received your confirmation email you’ll need to purchase the mitten yarn from Spun (410 N Fourth Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48104). Please make sure to mention you are part of the FBCA2 Mitten class; they will have our class list at the counter. You also need to purchase the pattern from Ravelry.
