Happy Birthday Elizabeth Zimmermann!! (Giveaways & Knit-a-long)

This month we honor the birthday of revolutionary knitter, Elizabeth Zimmermann (August 9, 1910 - November 30, 1999). Also known as EZ, she is one of the most well-known and influential knitters ever. Her most popular patterns include the Baby Surprise Jacket, the
Pi Shawl, and the February Baby Sweater.
EZ's books are wonderful and full of patterns and her musings about knitting as well as photos of herself and her family. To celebrate her birthday we will have drawings throughout the month to give away copies of her books. Come by the shop to signup for the drawings and to check out EZ's terrific books!

We are happy to announce our August knit-a-long ~ the terrific, amazing and of course, surprising "Baby Surprise Jacket" by Elizabeth Zimmermann. If you are looking for a fun and interesting knit this summer, this one is definitely for you! The
knit-a-long fee is $20 plus the cost of your supplies and includes all the help you need to complete this amazing baby sweater. We will meet on Thursdays, 12pm - 2pm beginning Thursday, August 11th. If you are unable to attend the knit-a-long on Thursdays, we invite you to create your own project class ~ for a fee of $20 you will receive all the help you need to complete the sweater at your own pace!
Come by soon to sign-up and to choose your yarn!
