KAL (Knit Along) With Us!

We always have some sort of Knit Along (KAL) going on at the Cottage. KALs are a fun way to join a community of knitters and stretch your skills. In the past we have made shawls with short rows, knitted sweaters and socks, chosen one particular designer and let everyone select a project from her designs. Sometimes I choose the project. Sometimes the participants decide what they would like to make. Every time we have had fun knitting together and seeing how everyone's projects turn out. At the end of each KAL, we have a photo shoot to show off our newly made wares. (Don't worry. It's just my dad coming to take some posed and candid shots of us with our projects! Thanks Dad!) Check out the Past KALs Gallery below.


Electric Love KAL

Our next KAL is a multi-textured wrap called Electric Love. It starts with Brioche knitting and increases to the designated width of the wrap. Then after a small Garter Ridge section, proceeds into a simple lace fabric. At the other end, the shawl mirrors the beginning with another Garter Ridge section and ends with Brioche, decreasing down to the final point. As will all of our KALs, there will be basic instruction provided and help available if you get stuck. We are also offering a Brioche Basics class in September for those who would prefer a little more hands-on instruction.

Stop by the Cottage to purchase the pattern and yarn to join us when we cast on during Therapy Night on Tuesday, August 28, at 5pm! This KAL will be continuing through November (at least) so it's okay if you miss the cast on night. You can join anytime! In September we return to our regular Therapy Night time of 6-8pm on Tuesday evenings. FYI - You don't have to be working on the KAL to join us those evenings. Just bring a project and plan to spend your evening knitting, chatting, and laughing!
