Knit Purl Hunter KAL

Knit Purl Hunter’s last KAL begins on October 10th. The first part of the pattern for the asymmetrical shawl will be released on the Knit Purl Hunter Web site at https://knitpurlhunter.com/blog/ on October 10th, with subsequent parts of the pattern released weekly. More info can also be found in the KnitPurlHunter Ravelry Group.

This KAL uses Skacel Simplicity Spray or Simplicity Tonal as the main yarn, along with Simplicity Solid. Yarn is available for purchase in the shop. Join us during Open Stitch time on Thursday evenings in October to work on the KAL together.

Join Our Fall Knit-A-Longs!

Shiftalong Hat KAL

Our “Shiftalong” KAL Runs August 30 – Sept 13. We are using Andrea Mowry’s Shiftalong Hat pattern. There is no cost and no need to register to be a part of the Knit-a-Long (KAL), just show up with your pattern and yarnWe’ll be meeting on 3 Fridays: August 30, September 6, and September 13, from 10:00am to 12:00pm for a little social knitting time, while we work on our hats.

There will not be any formal instruction during the KAL knitting time, but others may be willing to share tips and tricks that they have learned while on their own knitting adventure.

We currently have the Knitting My Way Home Trunk Show in the shop (until September 15th) featuring Sharon Knutson’s gorgeous fiber and homespun yarn, she has created kits for this hat, with one skein of color-changing homespun and one skein of a solid colored homespun to make your hat. Fun Fact it takes Sharon 8 -10+ hours of spinning and processing time per hank of handspun!!

You can come see Sharon giving a spinning demonstration during Defeat of Jesse James Days. She will be taking part in the KAL on September 6th and doing spinning demonstrations on September 7th.

Keep a look out for our next KAL, coming in October we will be knitting along with Knit Purl Hunter!
