June is Lace Month!

the projects are as follows...

Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery. A great way to introduce yourself to the wonders of lace knitting, this scarf is knit out of a fingering weight yarn and features a subtle zig-zag achieved through undulating columns of yarnovers. Lace repeats are short and easy to memorize, you’ll have a beautiful scarf before you know it!
The sample pictured is still in progress, and looking great so far!

Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark. This small triangular shawl can be knit from just 400 m of lace weight yarn…or sock yarn of course! It features a simple repeat in the main body, that flows into an elaborate border edge. The small size of this shawl makes it quite manageable to knit, and the triangular shape adds interest to the knitting process as it grows and gradually takes its shape!


Laminaria by Elizabeth Freeman
Based on traditional Estonian Lace stitches, this shawl will challenge and inspire you! There are two size options, so those who are timid about taking on a large project can still knit the pattern with a slightly smaller commitment of time. The Shawl Pictured was knit from 2 skeins of Malabrigo lace by our friend and wonder-knitter, Angela. She customized its size to be somewhere in between the large and small sizes provided in the pattern.

If you are interested in the Summer Knitting Club, drop by the store to register. Its completely free to join!

Our first meeting will be around two weeks into June, a final date will be posted shortly.
