Join us for a Slip Stitch Party KAL June 1 – August 31.  
Isabel Kramer’s new shawl pattern SSP (aka Slip Stitch Party) is an opportunity to play with color. This pattern is a fun project for knitters of any level that have experience with knit, purl, KFB, and slip stitches; and have at least made a few small projects. (advanced beginner)

We have put together some color options that you can use, or come into the shop to have us help you put together your own yarn choices. This pattern was designed for a sport weight yarn (such as Cascade 220), but can be made with a heavy fingering or a light DK (such as Rowan Felted Tweed or Berroco Ultra Alpaca).
  

We will be offering 2 Get Started classes with the objectives of helping you start the first Slip Stitch pattern and offer some tips on knitting & designing the shawl.
Class #1 - Saturday, May 28 @ 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Class #2 - Thursday June 2 @ 4:00 - 5:00 pm
Class is $10 for the 1 hour session and is limited to 8 students for each class. 
You only need to sign up for 1 of the classes if you think it will help you on your way.

There is no charge to participate in the KAL and
the class is optional - you do NOT need to take the class to participate in the KAL.

Pattern is FREE with purchase of yarn or if you are stash busting,
it is available on Ravelry for €5.00 EUR (Between $5-6 US dollars)
