A change of scenery.
Reminder that the shop is closed through Wednesday. See you on Thursday!
Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.
In-store shopping: masks are optional (but welcome and appreciated).
Join us around the big table for a couple of hours of convivial stitching.
Schedule changes related to winter weather will be posted on the door if possible, as well as on Instagram, Facebook, and Google. If roads are crummy on a Saturday, opening time will likely be delayed until 11:30.
Pattern here. This KAL will be self-directed, but please feel free to join in on Saturday social stitching, or to reach out for assistance. The beginning steps are well-designed and explained, but the cardigan starts out a bit differently than most, and I am happy to field questions! Recommended gauge is 20 stitches / 4"--lots of options will work for this! (Lore, Loch Lomond, Tosh DK, Encore, Lanas, Ultra Wool, Rios, Forge, Woolstok...)
While what I am up to this week is more business related, I do love a bit of craft planning. I've mentioned Knitsonik's online, craft-focused bullet journaling course before. (Loved it, still use lots of it, may re-watch soon). The Craftic shop/tutorial site/blog has some printable craft planners for purchase, along with a few freebies when you sign up for their newsletter.
And if you're looking for some larger scale, year-long projects, it's not too late to start--take a look at these ideas from Jennifer's Little World.
Pressed Flowers Cardigan: Perhaps you saw the social media post where, when knitting in the round, I realized I should have been knitting the flower motifs as stockinette (not garter stitch) all along. The project is not in time out (and I will treat this very consistently applied error as a design change, rather than pulling out 2/3 of a cardigan), but I did not make a lot of progress on it this week 🤦
