This season local knitting expert Talley Parker will be leading us in an in-store knit along! We'll be meeting on Wednesdays during Sit and Stitch (1pm-3pm). Our focus is going to be top down sweaters with stranded colorwork in the yoke. We've picked out a few patterns in different weights of yarn, but feel free to bring in any sweater that fits the theme!
Fingering Weight Yarn (Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Light): Terrace Gardens by Mary Pranica
Talley has almost finished this one with Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Light!
DK Weight Yarn (Berroco Ultra Wool DK):Blizzard by Jessica McDonald
Several of our local knitters are working on this one in Berroco Ultra Wool DK (83158 Rosemary and 8301 Cream) (83157 Lavender and 8301 Cream)!
Worsted Weight (Berroco Ultra Wool): Sweetheart by Linnea Ornstein
Kiera just cast on this one in Malabrigo Rios (Solis and Water Green)!
Note: This beautiful is written as a seamless bottom up sweater, but it can easily be converted for knitting top down if you're more comfortable knitting it that way.
Worsted Weight (Berroco Ultra Alpaca): Community Tunic by Joji Locatelli
Angela is starting this one in Berroco Ultra Alpaca (62183 Garnet Mix and 62190 Sweet Nectar Mix)
All of the patterns are available through Ravelry. Make sure to check out all of the beautiful pictures of projects other people have made! If there's a color you don't see that you'd like for your sweater, we may be able to special order colors in the yarns that we carry from our distributors. Contact us for more details.
We have a flexible timeline for our knit along--some of us have already started, others haven't picked patterns yet--so don't feel like you have to start right away or won't be able to participate because you're busy, a slow knitter, in the middle of ten other projects, etc., or all of the above.
Feel free to drop in on Wednesdays (with or without your sweater) and knit along with us! We can't wait to see you!
