NaKniSweMo

boyfriend-sweater.jpgNational Knit a Sweater in a Month was in November. But, we were swamped in November and figured everyone else was, too. We are now offering an opportunity to make a sweater in a month, with lots of fun, friends and support! You can even win prizes!

Susan will be teaching a class in January called "Knit to Fit", which you may want to take prior to the NaKniSweMo.

New Knit-A-Long with Michelle Hunter:

Match Play Poncho

fullsizeoutput-1741.jpgJoin Michelle Hunter this October for Match Play, a poncho featuring high-impact textured stitches and great techniques. Match Play has a bit of structure as she nudges you toward full sweater knitting. The best aspect of this poncho is that it has an easygoing fit to be figure-flattering on everyone. Match Play’s design features a vertical central motif to elongate every silhouette and who doesn’t like that?

Michelle discovered a new way to execute a favorite stitch that will forever change this technique for you. Perhaps life changing is a bit strong of a term, but it certainly rocked her world! She is excited to share the updated stitch and its accompanying video with you.

The true luxury of Match Play is due to the glorious Sueno yarn. This merino/bamboo blend gives the fabric drape, fluidity and sheen along with excellent stitch definition.

The photo shows her initial design sketch. She will be releasing tempting, mini clues up until the KAL debut on October 4th so stay tuned.
