On Saturday 8 April, 2-4pm we will be casting on our next knitalong – the Love Note sweater by Tin Can Knits. The pattern is available on ravelry.com and the sweater is usually knitted with one strand of 4ply/fingering weight and one strand of mohair/silk held together, but it is also possible to do it in DK. A 10% discount on yarn is available to those attending the knitalong. I have already done one of these – it is a joy to knit – quick and relatively easy and has a lovely drape. Perfect for Spring layers! Several things to enhance your skills as well – knitting top down, provisional cast on, short rows and lace work. It will be fun!

On Saturday 19 November at 4pm we will be casting on an Icelandic-style sweater – Manou by Isabell Kraemer. The idea is that we will knit it together so that we can support each other through any difficulties, such as short rows and colourwork. Tea and cakes will be provided. We will meet at regular intervals to be agreed with the group after that.
The sweater is knitted top down on circular needles. The pattern is on ravelry.com. The sweater is in DK wool in two colours – max 1200m (around 500g) for the main colour and 265m (around 150g) for the contrasting colour. I am offering a 10% discount to anyone purchasing the yarn from my shop for this project.
Let me know if you are interested in coming along. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or just turn up on the day. I am very much looking forward to this!
