Year of Mittens Knit Along

Aug 18th

Event Description

We're delighted to introduce Year of Mittens, a year-long knit-along hosted by Kelbourne Woolens and featuring The Fibre Co. Cumbria Fingering!

A new pattern will be released on the 1st day each month including classic cables, interesting colorwork, and unique lace applications, all with a heavy dose of classic inspiration and historical information.

Join us at Yarn Culture where we will host a Mitten KAL on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 10am-noon, except where noted. (Dates for September and October are different due to previously scheduled events or holidays). 

How does it work?

Every month, we'll have kits available for purchase including a printed copy of the pattern and the monthly featured yarn color in Cumbria Fingering.  Don't like the color?  You can swap it out for another color in Cumbria Fingering that we have in stock.    

Our KAL will meet twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Saturday from 10am-noon.  During the first session we'll look at the pattern and talk about specific techniques used and share tips and tricks as appropriate.  The second session is a chance to get additional pointers or enjoy time with your fellow knitters.  We'll also share preliminary information about the pattern for the coming month during Session 2.  We'll also post details on our website.  Don't worry if you can't make both sessions.  You can always drop in to one of our sit 'n knit sessions and do your mitten knittin' then!

You get to choose how many months you participate.  You can sign up for the full year of mittens  and have the patterns delivered to your Ravelry account automatically every month, or you can pick and choose the months as you like.

How do I sign up and get my yarn?

Let us know if you plan to join us by calling the shop at 585.678.4894 or by email.  If you are participating in August, you know we have a full house and we want to be sure we have enough places for everyone. There is no fee for the KAL, however your yarn or kit must be purchased from Yarn Culture.  You are welcomed to get the pattern from us or through Ravelry.  Of course it will be included in your kit if you choose to purchase one from us.  Our kit price is $25.00, so if you want to pick and choose your months, this will be your best value.  Please make sure your yarn is purchased and wound before the first session of the month so you can dive right in and knit.  Remember you can purchase your yarn by phone or online and we'll be happy to wind it and have it waiting for you when you arrive for the KAL.
