Tuesdays 6PM-8PM: January 22 & 29, & February 5, 12, 19, & 26
We are beginning 2019 with a KAL to celebrate the craft of knitting and the community we have been growing here at EWE. A colorwork yoked sweater is a timeless, milestone project that every knitter committed to the craft should make at least once. But it's also a project best knit in community, because you have the benefit of other knitters' ideas and input when it comes to motifs, color combinations, knitting techniques, etc.
Please note: we will be offering a 2-hour "Colorwork Refresher" class a week before the KAL begins. Click here to read more about this class and reserve your spot!
Knitters can choose any colorwork yoked sweater pattern to participate in this KAL. Here are some of our favorites that have been trending on Ravelry lately:

How does the KAL work?
KAL stands for knit along. In a KAL knitters typically knit the same or similar project. During the KAL, knitters get support to help navigate any tricky parts, learn a new skill, or trouble shoot along the way. The format is informal, so it is possible to join in at any time and it is not necessary to attend every knitting session.
The KAL is not a class but there will be an instructor (and other experienced knitters) at each session to answer questions, or help with any issues that crop up. We also have a lot of fun and the meetings are quite social.
There is no cost to participate in the KAL, but we do ask that you knit a project consistent with the KAL theme and purchase your pattern and yarn from us. We stock a good supply of yarns for almost any pattern you choose.
Get 10% off your KAL purchase, including yarn and needles. *Not to be combined with any other offers.
You do not need to come each week, and you can start your project at any point during the KAL. If you can't make it on Tuesday evening, you can come knit your project at our weekly Makers Circle.
If you want to participate in the KAL please add it to your cart and check out (there is no charge). This helps us keep track of how many knitters to expect.
