November Is Coming!
You know what that means, National Knit a Sweater Month! Or as it’s more commonly called NaKniSweMo (na-nee-sway-mo).
We believe that everyone should knit a sweater this November and we want to make it as easy for you as possible. So every Saturday in November from 10am to noon we’ll be having a sweater workshop of sorts. For $75 you’ll get the Knitter’s handy Book of Patterns book and 5 classes!
The first class will be on November 1st and we’ll get you started. We’ll help you find the perfect yarn and decide how you want to start your sweater. At the Second class on November 8th we’ll talk armhole and neck shaping. At the third class on November 15th we’ll handle the sleeves. On November 22nd at the 4th class we’ll help you with any seaming or picking up of stitches. Then finally at the 5th class on November 29th we’ll handle all the finishing, weaving in ends, blocking, etc. We know you can do it. Every knitter can knit a sweater! And we’re here to help. To register and pay either give us a call at (207)-594-6060 or stop by the shop!
