November Knits Every Tuesday through October
The November Knits book is full of fabulous designs. We want to knit them all, so we decided that until November we will start one design a month and in November have a show and tell party where you model your version of one of the designs. Make one or make them all. This started with the Market Jacket which we began in February. From that we said, why not do more? So, in September we will make the Bozeman Jacket, a warm, oversized jacket. Come by on Tuesday nights from 5:30pm - 7:30pm. If you're not sure, stop by anyway and we'll introduce you to the KAL. No fee for KAL. Yarns must be purchased at River Wools.
Swept Off My Feet Knitalong: If you have not knit socks before, this pattern is a fun way to try out sock construction. Because there's no need to fit these socks to someone's foot, gauge is unimportant. The size of the scarf will vary depending on the yarn and needles you choose. The scarf can be knit toe-up, top-down, or one of each; and the feet can point the same direction or opposite directions. Have fun making this scarf your own! Tuesdays, beginning September 2, 5:30 - 7:30pm.
