Workshop with Ellen Mason:Fried Chicken Mittens, Two at a Time
Learn to knit two Fried Chicken mittens at the same time. Ellen has rewritten her Fried Chicken Mitten pattern to include many sizes and detailed instructions on how to knit them simultaneously. The Fried Chicken Mitten has a sculpted thumb much like a chicken drumstick. It fits well and serves well as a go to pattern. Best of all, no second mitten to knit! The pattern will not be launched until January 31; be first to learn the technique.
Students will be learning the magic loop method of knitting two tubes simultaneously. They will be provided a printed copy of an unreleased pattern, modified to cater to the time restraints of the class. They will also be provided a digital copy of the same pattern, not modified. I will supply the yarn and stitch markers, as well as a new circular needle. I will need to charge a materials fee of $8 per student for the needle. It is imperative that they have the right tools. Limit of 12 students.
Ellen Mason Design
Ellen lives with her family in a handmade home in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. She has always been curious about textiles and would like to explore every process in the world before she kicks the bucket. So far, she has endeavored knitting, machine knitting, sewing, weaving, silk-screen and dyeing. She earned a degree in studio art, emphasis on weaving, and has worked as a trim designer, illustrator, children's clothing designer, and dyer.
On Groundhog Day, 2013 she launched a personal project called Dress + Cardigan: Twelve dresses sewn and twelve cardigans knit, six of the cardigans worked into patterns. On Groundhog Day, 2014, she will poke her head up and look around: If she casts a shadow there will be another six weeks of the project.
