Aran Mitten Class - part 1

Tonight was the first of two mitten knitting classes held at our local yarn shop, Little Red Mitten.

We cast on and started working the cabled cuff. Joan had lots of great tips for knitting in the round, increasing and reading cable charts. I'm really looking forward to Saturday's class when we work through what looks like a pretty complicated medallion pattern.

For now though our homework is to knit the cuff and start the gusset increases. I've been playing around doing some of the cables with a cable needle and some without to see if I could tell the difference. I can't. Knitting a cable without a cable needle was one of the tricks Joan showed us tonight. Pretty slick!
