Frascati by Norah Gaughan
Insouciant by Julie Hoover We're delighted to announce our new knitalong ("KAL", for short) at Serendipity Needleworks. Yes, it's been a while since we had one of these, but our fingers are itching to stitch a breezy summertime sweater and we thought this would be the perfect opportunity for you to join us! Norah Gaughan's Frascati sweater has been a shop favorite, so we've chosen it for one of our two options. Our other selection is Insouciant by Julie Hoover. We have both patterns available for you at the shop. Both are easy to knit and flattering to everyone, so you may have a hard time deciding. (Of course, you can always knit them both!) We have a plethora of summery, lightweight fibers to choose from and we'll be happy to help you make a selection.
We've tweaked the Serendipity KAL just a little and I'm sure you're going to find the changes to your liking. So, how is this going to work? We'll have a launch party on Friday, June 7 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. - complete with sparkly drinks and sweet treats. Come by the shop, if you're in the neighborhood, and choose your pattern and yarn.
We really wanted our long-distance friends to be able to participate with us, too. Now you can - on Ravelry in our Serendipity Stitchers group. Simply pop in on the Summer KAL thread and, voila, you're in the loop! We'll have patterns and yarns on our web site by June 8 for your project, if you live too far away to come for a visit.
We'll all knit along together, sharing our yarn and pattern selections, progress, questions, and pictures on Ravelry. Our local friends (and anyone who feels the urge to make a road trip) are warmly invited to come on down and knit around our big farm table on Saturday afternoons during Sit & Stitch from 2:00 - 4:00.
Our Knit Doctors will be on call for 'emergencies' or you can post a question on the Ravelry KAL thread, where one of our staff will help you through your rough spot. We'll all gladly cheer you on to the finish line, in time for our Wrap Up party on August 23, where we'll celebrate with a "Big Hurrah", lots of pictures, and, of course, more sparkly drinks and sweet treats. Please come and join us!

other terrific choices, too, though.)
