Our Summer Knitalong (#summerkal2016) starts in just over two weeks and it’s a good one. Here’s a chance for you to try knitting with one of our many fine Summer yarns, and make yourself a light and wispy summer cardigan, tank, or tee. This year we have an even wider range of yarns from lace to bulky, so come in and see what’s available before you decide on a project!

We have some great recommendations picked out on Ravelry. Just check out our Summer Kal 2016 Bundle under favourites in our user profile @handknityarn, or click here.

The requirements for the knitalong are:

-You must purchase yarn for your project from us. We’re a Ravelry pro-shop so you can purchase many Ravelry patterns from us too!

– Projects should be a garment, minimum 750 yards, and made in a summer yarn- cotton, linen, silk, or blend. Wool fingering and lace weight yarns are acceptable, as are shawls in fingering, lace, or summer yarns.

-You should be familiar with most of the techniques used in your pattern. We do not provide instruction during a knitalong or at knitalong meetings, but you can book a private consultation ($20/hour) if you need extra help with your project.
