Newish Knitter KAL July 2020
Our first Newish Knitter Knitalong was so popular, we decided to start another one.
One of the questions that we get most often from newer knitters is "What should I knit next?" So we designed the Newish Knitter Knitalong to answer that question for you. In June, the Newish Knitters (and several not so new knitters) made the River shawl.
What are we going to make in July?
Our July Knitalong project is the Versa Cowl (pictured above).
What is a knitalong(KAL)?
A KAL is when several people knit the same thing at the same time. It is like a class, but more casual. There is more encouragement than education. Liz helps you with techniques that might be new to you or reviewing things you may have forgotten. She will also have a few tips and tricks to share.
When does it meet?
This Knitalong group will meet every Wednesday at 7pm on Zoom, starting on July 1st and ending on July 22.
What yarn do I need?
There is no charge to participate, but we do ask that you buy your yarn for this project from String Theory. We recommend two contrasting skeins of Rios, Classy, Self-striping Entropy or Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio DK. If you see something you like grab it. If not, give us a call and we'll put something together just for you. You will also need the pattern and a size 7 24" circular needles. Size 8 needles would work too.
How do I sign up?
To register, buy two contrasting skeins of the yarns listed above. Include a note that you are interested in the knitalong when you checkout. We will send you the Zoom link, with instructions how Zoom works if you need that too.
Everyone is welcome
This knitalong is open to everyone. We put it together to support people who have taken Knit 101 and have been knitting for less than a year. But I imagine even some experienced knitters are a little overwhelmed by life right now would benefit from an easier project and some human interaction. Join us.
