Double Knitting = Double Fun!

Want to know our favorite kind of knitting? The learning kind! Working a pattern that teaches us a new skill is energizing - once we master it, we feel like we can tackle anything! 

Recently, Laura needed a bit of a refresher on how to double-knit, so our resident knit-xpert, Terry, showed her the ropes. Even a long-time knitter can learn new skills, so check out the video of their lesson and let us know in the comments if you have any tips or tricks to add!





What new knitting skills have you been learning lately?
