What We’ll be Knitting – this year, I found a great book that we’ll be using as the basis for our weekend knitalong. It’s called “Sock-Yarn Shawls” by Jen Lucas. There are 15 different shawls to choose from, in three different categories; “Lace-edged”, “Allover Lace”, and “Beyond the Triangle”. It’s a good time to learn to read a chart, since each pattern is written out AND charted, and there is a wide range of skill levels to choose from too. Along with the book, you’ll receive a skein of custom dyed, exclusive sock yarn to knit your shawl with, along with other goodies in your bag. As always, YG’s trio of experts will be on hand to help you with any questions you may encounter along the way.
