Through out the year we offer Knit Alongs; projects that we do together as a group.  These are unstructured meetings that anyone can participate in at no cost.  Knit 1 offers discounts on the yarn for the project; though not a formal class, help is offered to those who need it.


The Modern Tunic Knit-a-Long is about to begin.  We're casting on Monday, April 13 and we'll wrap up on the weekend of June 13 and 14.  This is such a great garment and it can be knit in so many yarns and combinations.  When Lori was here for the workshop in January, she was wearing it knit in Shibui Linen and Cima.  I've started mine in that combo and I love it.  I'm continually impressed by the brilliance of Shibui yarn.  So many yarn combinations work and you can choose to mix colors as well.  You don't need to do it in Shibui, we have lots of other yarns that would be perfect.  Stop into the shop and we'll get you all set up.

Here are the deets:

•Come in anytime to buy your yarn and pattern and receive 10% off on all supplies specifically for this project.

•Check in with us here in the comments section or by email info@knit1chgo.com and/or here on Ravelry.  You must check in to get your discount.

•Join us on Monday evening for the official kick off.

•Great prizes for the first people to complete their garment.  Prizes will be awarded the weekend of June 14th.

Can't wait till I can wear this with some white jeans and sandals!




The Lanesplitter Skirt
by Tina Whitmore
2068 people have knit it on Ravelry and it looks good on everyone!  Cory's knitting it right now in Noro Takeuma and it's beautiful.  The original is knit in Noro Kureyon and we're excited to try it in Schoppel Wolle Gradient.  Any self-striping yarn will work, even sock yarn (just means more knitting). 

Please join us for the Kickoff September 11 at 6:30. 
Here's how it works:  We all cast on the same evening.  Some of our friends live too far to join, so they're going to Skype in.  Our job is to keep you on task by setting a schedule which is below.  You can post on the Knit 1 FB page or on Ravelry to get help or ask questions.  Yarn for the project will be 10% off.  We are here to help you and make recommendations. 

October 2nd we'll establish the circumference.
October 23rd we'll start the decreases.
November 6th we'll seam and pick up for the waistband.
November 20th we'll wrap up!  Literally!!
