The theme for January's sweater makealong is: Scandi Design. As always, our guidelines are flexible--if you want to participate, there's probably a way we can include your project. The main criteria are:
The makealong will start January 13th, and continue through the end of February. If there is interest, we may schedule some Zoom check-ins for early Sunday afternoons. There is no requirement that you finish your project.
For our purposes here, we'll be going with the broader definition of Scandinavia, which includes Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland. (Finland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland aren't always included.)
January is a great time for fresh starts, and there's nothing quite like casting on for a new project with friends! See below for some possible ways to interpret our theme.
A reminder--if you're feeling poorly, please join us again as soon as you're feeling better!
Our official start date will be January 13th, and we'll continue through February.
January 1 -- 9a - 3:30p (note the later opening time)
January 8-10 -- Closed for annual planning
In the ten years we've been open, we've had *very* few unscheduled closures. That said, our hours are sometimes affected, and here's how we try to keep you posted:
