Featuring Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter

We are pleased to announce the next Progressive Needles KAL, sponsored by skacel and hosted once again by Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter.

First Clue for this KAL goes live on July 2, 2015!

Join me this summer for Unleashed – a delightful convertible mitten. These gems have a handy flip top allowing them to be worn as fingerless mitts or as a warm mitten. Perfect for texting, dog walking, or knitting outdoors. Available in Child (approx. 4-6 yrs.) and Adult (fits most) size. Learn something new while getting a jump on your holiday gifts!
