Begins February 23rd2012 – runs 4 weeks.
(Thursday evenings 6:00 – 9:00pm)

While spring is technically just over a month away, we’re still feeling the chill of winter and enjoying projects designed to keep us cozy and warm. Our next Knit-Along features three fun knits guaranteed to keep you toasty for the rest of the season. Make your selection and join us beginning February 23rd for four consecutive Thursdays of fun, support, and creative productivity.

The State Street Cowl by Pam Allen is a great piece which can be worn worn down over the shoulders or as a traditional cowl perfect for braving the elements. We knit our store sample up in SweetGeorgia Superwash Chunky – it’s squishy and soft without being overly bulky. Pattern available for purchase online.

Chevron Colour Block Blanket by Espace Tricot is a luxurious throw knit using 4 shades of Cascade Eco Cloud – a soft 70% merino / 30% alpaca blend.  As written, the blanket dimensions are 48″ x 60″ but this pattern is easily sized upwards / downwards.  Pattern is available in store – for free!

Astor by Norah Gaughan is a gorgeous cardigan with a stunning cabled front.  It is designed to be somewhat oversized and features shortened sleeves and deep pockets.  Knit with Berroco Peruvia Quick – a chunky / bulky weight yarn – this cardigan is a surprisingly quick project.  Come in and try on our store sample but, be warned, you won’t ever want to part with it! Pattern is available for purchase in store.
