A Knitalong is a nice way to keep summer-knitting slap-happy. Some of the folks who join us at the Knit Cafe regularly have started one. The Sexy Shrug knitalong began Tuesday May 31. Already the shrugs are well on their way. Take a gander!
This is the Knit Cafe’s already finished version of the Sexy Shrug just in case you were wondering what the end result might be. Knit-up in Dream in Colour Classy (which is a worsted weight yarn). The colour shown is “In Vino Veritas” which translates to “in wine there is truth” Indeed!
What do you need to start your own knitalong?
First you need a project.
Then you need some knitters.
Then you need a convenient and regular way to get in touch.
The internet is a great tool for a virtual knitalong. Meeting in person is nice too. Our Sexy Shrug Knitalong is being propelled by two types of communicators.
1. The knitters meet consistently at our Tuesday night Stitch and Bitch.
2. Email addresses were exchanged. Comments, concerns and status updates can be imparted this way. This is some of the chatter this week:
Hi Ladies, Are we starting this tonight at the KC? ~ C
I have a confession…I cast on for my shrug last night. I can never concentrate enough at the Knit Cafe to get the right number, so I am all ready! ~S
I vote this the most adorable confession of the day! ~R
I believe this project is not good for the subway either. Second try failed miserably in row 3. Will try again in the peacefulness of my hotel in room in Frankfurt. Good luck everyone. ~A
Haha, I had a very good row 3- 6, with branching out to Continental purl rows oh my!~E
If you are also knitting the Sexy Shrug and have some pics or some comments – send them along! ~ME!
