Newish Knitter KAL -July

Date(s): July 3, 10 and 17 

Time: 7:00-8:30pm-ish

Location: The comfort of your own location - this is a zoom class

Instructor: Liz Daly 

Description:
Our Newish Knitter KAL is for knitters who have finished Knit101 and Knit 102 and are wondering what to knit next.  All of these patterns are great places to practice your stitches and learn how to read patterns.  This KAL is also for more experienced knitters who want to socialize with others while knitting a project where you can knit and chat at the same time.   

In July we typically knit a fingering weight project, a project that takes a little bit longer since our store closes in August for a break and we don't meet.  This July we will be knitting The Sea Urchin shawl by Ambah O'Brien.  We will go over eyelets, picking up stitches, short rows with garter stitch (no picking up the wraps) and so much more! 

There is no charge for this virtual get-together, however, we ask that you purchase yarn from the store for this project.    When you purchase your yarn write in the comments section that you would like to be added to the KAL!   Don't worry if you can't make all of the sessions.  We'd love to have you when you can make it.

Supplies:  

  • 1 skeins of Fingering weight yarn (approximately 225 yards or more) of a solid-ish color.  Liz used Keenan Sock
  • 1 Fino mini skein kit or 1 Paint Can approximately 420 yards 
  • US 5 24" and/or 40" circular needles or size to get gauge.  (For the body of the shawl you could use a 24" or longer needle.  For the border of the shawl you will need a 40" needle.  If you don't mind working with a long cable needle you could use a 40" for the entire project.)
  • Basic knitting supplies

Homework: Have your yarn and needles ready.  

Prerequisites: Be comfortable knitting and purling
