Shop KAL's (Knit Along)
In these part online, part in-shop events, you'll get the motivation and inspiration of working on a project with others without the cost or commitment of a class. We'll kick it off in shop and have check in points when there will be a facilitator who provides assistance. We'll set up on a discussion group on Ravelry where you can ask and answer questions, post your results, and watch everyone's progress. There will even be prizes along the way! Join in the fun of these cooperative learning experiences.
Big Sister KAL
I started this sweater on my last vacation out of a need for a black cardigan. How did I not have one? While it looks like a lot of plain stockinette stitch, the construction was so innovative and fun that I want to share it with you. This is a top down sweater with the fit of a set in sleeve AND there are NO seams to sew! Your collar and pockets will be knit as you go. Your yarn for this project will be 10% off through May 31.

Every time I look at this shawl, I want to cast on. The high contrast colors are eye catching and perfect for wearing a neutral and a spectacular bright color around your face. The slipped stitch pattern is super easy even though it has serious wow factor! Your yarn for this project will be 10% off through May 31

This worsted weight, 100% mercerized cotton is an Out of the Loop basic. It's perfect for adult sweaters as well as baby blankets. The finished look is a bit more formal than a non-mercerized cotton but it still have a beautiful drape and softness and is also washable. Stop by to see the store sample sweater (#1 below).

I have my own mother and grandmother to thank for every skill my hands possess. While neither of them really liked to knit, their achievements when it comes to all forms of needlework is awe inspiring. I constantly hear their words in my head
