We’re continuing right along with our series of complimentary workshops to help get you started on your next knitting project. This series is designed for beginner knitters who are ready to tackle the next challenge. All you need to know is how to cast on, knit and purl! I’ll show you the rest. Seriously.

As you (hopefully!) already know, we’re making The Sophia Cowl this month with the supersoft and bouncy Manos del Uruguay Maxima 100% merino wool yarn. With purchase of materials and an RSVP, you’re invited to come on over on Wednesday, May 15 from 6-8PM to get started! Read more about The Sophia Cowl Workshop here.

For June, we’re going to have fun knitting with Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk yarn, a 50% alpaca and 50% silk yarn blend that offers an elegant drape and sheen to your projects. I’ve picked out my favorite color combinations for making the Colorblock Shawl, a straight forward garter stitch shawl that’ll see you through Summer’s chilly nights. Or freezing air conditioned places, whether it’s your work place or the grocery store. Who says you can’t be the best dressed at Shop Rite?!

Which Alpaca Silk colors will you choose?

The Colorblock Shawl is a terrific project to see the potential of circular needles. Contrary to The Sophia Cowl, we’ll be working our project flat on the same length circular needle instead of joining to work in the round. Plus, I’ll show you make one increases (from right and left), how to change colors or add new yarn to your project, and demonstrate a stretchy bind off. Good stuff, right?
