SAVE THE DATE: New Knitalong, New Issue of Creative Knitting is LIVE!

Get ready, get set for a new knitalong!

This January, let’s chime in the New Year together and work our way through the Pata Shawl, designed by Francoise Danoy. The sample below is made with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Lace, which you can learn about on AnniesYarnShop.com by clicking here. We also suggest that you consider Plymouth Linaza if the idea of linen excites you.

The Details

We still have about a month before we get moving with the knitalong, but in the meantime, here are a few things you can do…

See you in a few weeks with more details!

    I have never done a knit along before. Is it at a certain time each day or how does it work?

      Hi Pam,
      It’s not a certain time of day, but it starts on a given date, and then you “knitalong” on the chosen project with other knitters. Keep following along here, because I’ll be posting about the spring issue knitalong, which starts this Friday, 1/22. All the details will be listed there. Hope to see you! 🙂

    I just received the email about this and have never done this before. I am like Pam and was wondering more about how this works. I will also have to order my yarn from Annie’s.

      Wanda,
      As mentioned in my comment to Pam, this is how it works: when the knitalong starts, which will be Friday, 1/22, you then “knitalong” on the chosen project with other knitters. You can check out this thread on Ravelry for more info: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/creative-knitting-magazine-fans/3341011/26-50#38

      Keep following along here on the blog, because I’ll be posting about the spring issue knitalong, which starts Friday, 1/22. All the details will be listed there.

      In the meantime, make sure you get your yarn and supplies so you’re ready to go on the 22nd!
