Ludington Bed & Breakfast Association and Nautical Yarn have created a relaxing weekend getaway that combines knitting, great food and fun times with friends! The talented team at Nautical Yarn will be teaching a class entitled Silver Linings, multiple projects that include a lined hat and a pair of lined mittens knit using worsted weight yarn. For the hat and mittens, you may use an “intentional patterning” yarn or one skein of solid and one skein of yarn that stripes.
