Knitalongs & Stitchalongs
Scoreboard Cowl Knit-Along
begin with the kick off of football season and knit through the NCAA
National Football Championship Game (or whenever your favorite team
finishes their 2015 season)
during the game, or check in with us each Monday morning on our Facebook
page for the sequence of stripes for each Alabama and Auburn
Here's how it works...
Scoreboard Cowl is worked in the two (or three) colors of your favorite
football team. The main color (MC) represents your favorite team and
their points, while the secondary color (CC) represents your team's
opponents and their points. There's also an option to add a third color,
to provide a visual break line between the games.
The idea is
simple. When your team scores, you'll knit a round in the MC for each
point scored. Did they kick a field goal? That would be 3 rounds. Did
they score a touchdown? Another 6 rounds. Was the extra point good? Add
another round! Should the opposing team score on the subsequent drive,
their points will be knit in the CC (same rules as above). Follow this
structure the entire game, switching back and forth between the MC and
CC, depending on which team scores. All rounds will be worked in knit
stitch, except the optional game-dividing purl rounds. When the season
is over, you will have created an amazing wearable knitted record of
your team's 2015 season in the Scoreboard Cowl.
Accelerating Stripes Knit-Along
Wednesday, September 2, 9, 16, & 23
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon
stripes - big and little - adorn these sporty accessories that add a
touch of pizzazz to any wardrobe. Knit-along with us around the table to
create a cowl, fingerless gloves, or BOTH!
super-soft accessories are fun-to-knit projects that provide the
perfect practice for learning to make 'jogless' stripes and for keeping
your color changes neat and tidy. Simple to knit, the Accelerating
Stripes cowl or fingerless gloves would make a wonderful gift and
there's still plenty of time to get them knitted up and tucked away for
the upcoming holiday season.
The squishy soft yarn we suggest is
Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino Baby and we've gathered a host of stylish color
combinations from which to choose. The entire project takes only 4
skeins of yarn and it's just $11.50 a skein. Wow! That's less than $50
for a cowl and
fingerless gloves. We'll have one of our Serendipity experts on hand to
share some special tips and tricks throughout the knit-along, so join
us around the table for some fun-filled knitting with kindred spirits.
