NaKniSweMo [IN PROGRESS]

November 1, 8, 15, 22*, 29 (Wednesdays)
Instructor: Ann Miner
5-7pm
$30 + materials

The first National Knit a Sweater Month (NaKniSweMo) was the brainchild of Cooperative Press founder, Shannon Okey, in 2006. Inspired by National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), it has happened every subsequent November, and stitchers in the NaKniSweMo Ravelry group are currently making plans for 2017 projects.

While the “official rules” state that a qualifying sweater must be 50,000 stitches, for the purposes of this KAL at Yarn Folk, you can participate with a sweater of any size. Whether you’re taking on your first sweater or your fortieth, join us to make a sweater in November!

*November 22 is the day before Thanksgiving–we will discuss class interest and availability to meet on that date.

Class is suitable for confident beginners–you should know how to cast on, knit, purl, cast off, and possess basic knowledge of knitting pattern terminology.

Project Circle

November 24 (Friday)
5-9pm
Materials only

Join us for monthly project circle–a dedicated time to work on those long-term projects that need a little extra attention to transform them from unfinished objects into finished ones! Please note: November project circle is extended by two hours due to Plaid Friday hours. Regular monthly Project Circle meets from 5-7pm.

Drop-in Workshop Hours

Wednesdays and Fridays during December
5-7pm
Materials only

Due to busy schedules, we are taking a break from formal classes during December, but will be available for workshop hours on Wednesday and Friday evenings from 5-7pm. Whether you need a bit of help to move your project forward, or you just need a place away from curious eyes to work on gift projects, we’ll be here for you!

    I’d like to sign up for the Continental Knitting class on Fri. 9/23/16. Is there still a seat available? What do I need to bring

  2. Ann

    Hi Lois–
    Yes, space available. All you need is some medium-weight yarn and needles to knit with! Preferably light-colored. Sorry I didn’t see this until this afternoon!

    I attended the previous Mindful Swatching class, mostly because I thought I should…”there might be something useful”… Wow, I was completely impressed (and humbled) by how much I learned. The skills will be really helpful in my mission to step up my knitting game, and save me from a lot of false starts. Thank you Ann!

    I’m glad it was useful, Terri! Swatching really doesn’t have to be a chore!
