HK West KAL 2017
We had so much fun hosting our Stephen West knitalong last year, we decided to do an encore knitalong! If you’d like to join, just come in and sign up, and pick out your yarn and pattern. We cast on together on April 9th (but you don’t have to wait..), and all participants who finish by the Cast OFF date will enter a draw to win a $60 HK gift card!!
The requirements of the Knitalong are:
-You must purchase your yarn for the knitalong from Handknit within 3 months of the start date, or during the knitalong until the deadline date, in order to qualify for the prize draw.
-Projects must meet a minimum yardage requirement of 700 yards, in order to qualify for the prize draw. If your project does not meet the required yardage, you can still join, but you won’t be able to enter the draw.
Please note that this is strictly a social knitalong- there is no instruction provided. If you need extra help with your project during the knitalong, we recommend booking a private lesson ($20/hour).
The knitalong (KAL) starts April 9th, and ends May 21st. Here are the meeting dates: April 9th, April 23rd, May 7th, May 21st. 10-12pm.
