We're having a Knit-A-Long

It's cold out there...what can be better then to spend time with friends to make this beautiful sweater. 

That's right, we're having a knit-a-long (KAL) and best of all, we have the designer at the shop to help us on our journey. We're going to be creating the Moraine Jacket by Moon Eldridge as seen in Interweave Knits Winter 2015. It's on display at the shop for you to see for yourself. 
You will need to be able to read a pattern, knit, purl, increase, decrease... 
You can purchase the pattern at the shop or bring along your issue if you already have purchased it. 

We are meeting Tuesday nights from 6:30p - 9:00p OR Sundays afternoons from 1:00p - 4:00p.
