Yearlong Knitalong: January!
Join us today - Monday, January 7th - from 11:00 am until noon for January's installment of the Haus of Yarn Yearlong Knitalong; we'll be working on the Top Down Swing Pullover from Knitting Pure & Simple. Worked in worsted weight yarn, this one is a perfect "first sweater" project for those of you who've never knit one - if you can knit and purl, you can make this sweater! We love the flattering flared silhouette and - since it's both top down and knit in one piece - short of weaving in some ends, there's very little pesky finishing to do!

Yarn Suggestions: We have three (!!!) samples of the Top Down Swing Pullover on display in the shop; two are knit in wool - Homestead and Tara Tweed. Our third sample is in Good Earth, a cotton/linen blend. 

For those of you working on (or wanting to start!) a block from our Afghan Block-a -Month Book, we'll be meeting at 1:00 pm today (January 7th)!
