Coming to Knit1 and other small businesses near you on Saturday the 28th.  I didn't plan any special events, but our bins are filled to bursting with fantastic fall and winter yarns and I stocked a lot of lovely chunkies to make your holiday crafting fun and speedy.  Many great patterns out there with just one skein of Rasta, Magnum, Merino5 which is the new yarn from Loopy Mango and Zumie.  We are happy to help you choose gifts for your favorite knitter or crocheter, too.

We are closing at 5PM on Wednesday to get all the cooking finished for Thanksgiving and will remain closed until Saturday morning at 10AM.

Happy Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing everyone this weekend,

Insert Happy Sweater Face

Intimidated by sweater knitting?  Scared of knitting patterns?  Want to knit a sweater in the company of some super fun people?!  Then this class is perfect for you.  Allyson Dykhuizen will take you on the sweater journey.  We'll break the sweater pattern of your choice down into sections, get you on a sweater knitting schedule, and help you every step of the way; from picking out materials to seaming your sleeves.  Sweater Club will help you knit a sweater!  We'll also be taking techniques from Amy Herzog's CustomFit and helping you modify your sweater pattern with your exact measurements to get you a sweater you're sure to wear again and again.  Signing up for this class gets you 4 or 8 class periods of your choice over the course of 10 weeks.  The goal is to finish your sweater by the end of the class.  Winter session of Sweater Club starts Sunday January 10th and continues every Sunday morning 10-Noon for 10 weeks.  Sign up for either 4 class periods over those 8 weeks for $80 or 8 class periods for $140

You got this!

A Quickie Post re: Christmas Stocking Class

This image is perfect, right? Grass, leaves and Christmas stockings. We still have space in our Christmas Stocking Class next Saturday, November 7th from 10AM to Noon. It's 3 weeks long and costs $75. You will get a pattern but you will have to buy yarn and needles. We have lots of gorgeous colors and we don't think Christmas stockings need to be red and green, but we have many shades of those, too. In this class you will learn to knit in the round, knit with multiple colors using the stranded or Fair Isle method and read charts. Please join us!
To register call us at 773.244.1646 or you can email me at lynn@knit1chgo.com
(soon we will have a brand new website with a shopping cart, but until then it's old school, sorry)
We also still have a couple spots in our Weaving Workshop on November 14th.  $110 and you get a loom, yarn and all the rest of your supplies.  See previous post for photos of our inspiration and more deets.
