Come join me for a knit along! I’m hosting the July knit-along on Craftsy. We’re making the shawl that you see in these pics – my new Blue Angel Shawl.
This project will teach you some fun new skills and explain some things that you may have been doing in your knitting for years, but maybe haven’t really understood why. The workshop includes the pattern, along with in-depth instructions and high quality close-up photos of each step. Craftsy will send you one beautiful skein of Cascade Heritage yarn in Como Blue to complete the project. Plus, I will be responding to questions and providing help along the way.
With my guidance, knitters intermediate and above will be able to participate in and enjoy the workshop. Won’t you join the fun? Grab a tall iced tea, your favorite patio chair, and knit along with me! Click here to join!
Note: this is not a video class, it’s a photo-based knit-along.
Besides a few things that I knit for Mazie when she was a baby, I haven’t knit many seamed sweaters in the last few years.
For my next seamed project, I’ve decided to knit Breckon, by Amy Christoffers from Brooklyn Tweed WoolPeople 3. I love the texture of this sweater, and the mix of the tweed and the lace is really interesting to me. After reading the pattern, I see that the body is knit in one pice from the bottom up to the shoulders – so the only seams are at the shoulders and armholes…the sleeves are set in.
This might be a good segue for me into the wide world of seaming!
I’ve ordered enough Brooklyn Tweed Loft in Thistle, and as soon as I finish my next Hope Shawlette, I’ll cast on for it!
The yarn arrived this week, and it’s so airy and the color is perfect. I knit Nathan a hat in Shelter – so I know that I’m going to LOVE this sweater! I can’t wait!
