Knitalong with Us

Posted on Sep 22, 2010 in Katarina KAL

The Fiber Gallery is hosting its first knitalong this fall. Everyone is invited to join in through in-store classes and parties, and to follow along on our Ravelry group. The project is the immensely flattering and versatile Katarina by Cocoknits. The worsted-weight cardigan with shawl collar can be worn open or pinned closed.

This is a great opportunity to make your first sweater, to meet other knitters, or to pick up tips on new techniques. To participate, simply purchase your pattern and yarn from us between now and October 10, and then join us at the kickoff celebration on October 10 at 4 p.m. We’ll have door prizes and snacks for you as you get started on your sweater.

Participants are then invited to come to any or all of our four free support sessions for knitting assistance, to check in on one another’s progress and to win door prizes. All participants will be entered into our grand prize drawing. Additionally, you’ll be able to communicate with us and other knitalong participants through a thread on the Fiber Gallery’s Ravelry group.

In January, we’ll have a finish-line party at the store, and you’ll get the chance to display your finished project as part of a week-long trunk show. Your cardigan does not need to be finished by January, but any knitter with a finished sweater will earn a second entry into the grand prize drawing.

We hope you’ll join us!
