Before you start knitting, it will help if you have a basic understanding of stranded colorwork, knitting in the round, and mitten construction (though I do give a knitter a hand in this department with tips and links).
Maple Ridge Sheep Farm yarn is not available in stores -- you have to order skeins directly from the farm, and for that reason, you may want to substitute a sport-weight yarn of your choice that knits up in the correct gauge. I’m not affiliated with MRSF! I just love Shetland yarn.
