We are meeting on Fridays anytime after 4:30, and typically having some wine and cheese and chat.  And knit.  KAL's are for us to benefit from each others' experience.  There's no formal teacher, we just dig in and nail a project for the fun with each other!   Let us know you're coming here!
January 3rd finds us casting on the Joy Cardigan from Laine Magazine Issue 9
If you don't have it, don't worry, we do!  Grab some Donegal DK, or Felted Tweed and we'll work together to get this beautiful cardigan done, and learn some things in the process!  It starts with just 3 stitches!
After working a length of i-cord, it grows seamlessly over shoulders and down the back until coming together for the body. A beautiful crossed-stitch detail is worked above the hem. The sleeves are picked up and knitted to the cuff, which is folded back. There is nothing to sew, and no trims to pick up. Once you cast off your last sleeve, the cardigan is practically ready to wear. The cardigan is open at the front and has spacious upper arms to make wearing layers easy. The length is slightly cropped, but as it is worked top-down, it is easy to work the body as long as you want it to be.
We'll shoot to be wearing our Cardis on Valentines Day!
