Newish Knitter Knitalong October
Our first Newish Knitter Knitalong has been so popular, we decided to make it a regular monthly event.
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.
What are we going to make in October?
The project for the next Newish Knitter Knitalong is the Hitchhiker. This is an asymmetrical triangle shape that can be worn as a scarf, all knit in garter stitch.
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 meets Wednesday at 7pm Central Time on Zoom, starting on October 7 and ending on October 21.
What yarn do I need?
The scarf calls for two skeins of DK Weight Yarn (you can use one skein, but it ends up a little wimpy.)
You could pick two skeins of Neighborhood Fiber Co DK or Migration Journey or Malabrigo Susurro (if wool is too warm for you).
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 size 6 or 7 24" circular needles. Longer needles would work too.
How do I sign up?
To register, buy one or two skeins of the listed above or another good substitute and Include a note that you are interested in the knitalong when you checkout. On October 6, we will send you the Zoom link so you can join in.
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.

Every year our customers make (and donate) boutique-worthy scarves for our Scarf Market which runs Thanksgiving through Christmas. We sell them and donate all proceeds to a different local charity.
