The Yarn Studio will be launching a
Spring Knit A Long with a start date of April 1.
What is a Knit A Long? This is when knitters commit to knit a project together and support each other through the process. Many KAL's focus on one pattern design. Our Spring KAL will be a little different as I am asking you to select a wearable design and commit to finishing your chosen project by June 1. We will have 3 categories from which you can choose patterns. The categories will be shawls, wraps / ponchos, and sweaters. To make this more fun...I will be awarding prizes in each category. Participants who finish by June 1 will receive a tote bag.
Here are 3 sweater choices our staff has selected...
Tara is knitting the Seven Sisters Top in
Printed Organic Cotton by Blue Sky Fibers
Jeanette is knitting the Weekender Light
in Flaxen Silk by Sweet Georgia
Kelly is knitting the Weekender
in Shepherds Wool
What is the cost to participate? The only cost is for your supplies and they MUST be purchased from our shop either by visiting the store in-person or by shopping online through our website.
How do I get my supplies? I will be in the shop this week and next during our open hours to assist you in selecting materials and to provide help picking a project. If you want to be virtual and need help, email me your pattern ideas and I will get you fixed up!!
Do I have to attend gatherings? No... but you are invited to join Open Knitting Sessions at the shop. These Open Knit Sessions will be held on Thursdays and Saturdays. This is a great time to collaborate with other knitters and I will be available for free assistance during these sessions.
Can I participate virtually? Absolutely!!
So that everyone ( in-person and virtual ) feels informed, You will be added to a specific email group for participants only. I have also established a Spring 2021 KAL page on the shop website where participants will be listed along with their chosen project. This is also the registration page.
We think your project and material choices will inspire others so your project information will also be posted on the Official KAL Board at the shop.
To be eligible for prizes you must register by our start date of April 1.
Knit Gatherings at The Project Table
YESSS....for the month of April the Project Table will be back!!!
Thursdays starting @ 1 pm
Saturdays starting @ 10:30 am
Most of you know that I own a corner building with beautiful sunlit windows that is currently sitting empty. (the former location of The Farmer's Wife Gift Shoppe)
For the month of April we will be using that building for Creative Gatherings on Thursday afternoons and on Saturday mornings. This will allow plenty of room for people to spread out and "feel safe."
I will personally be available to offer help on your projects during this time.
The teaching table located in the store remains available for individuals to drop in and knit during our open hours as long as there is not a class meeting.
This is a free service offered to our customers. Therefore as a courtesy to the shop, we ask that you please work with supplies purchased at The Yarn Studio.
Also you will need to enter and exit the building through the front corner door.
Upcoming Spring Cocoknit Workshop
It is time for our spring version of the Cocoknits Workshop. If this method of sweater construction interests you...check out our workshop listing on the shop website. It will be available both in person and virtual.
In the mean time...happy knitting!!
