A GREAT Knit A Long Coming

Julia will be leading a new Knit A Long starting
Monday, June 15.
Join Julia on our Facebook Group Page.
Come see us now.
Get your pattern & yarn.
Check your gauge.
Get ready to CAST ON!!!!
An interesting, educational, and just plain fun knit for 3 colors of fingering weight yarn. Julia will guide you through this design on our New Facebook Knitter’s Edge Group Page. Join our group now if you don’t already belong. Call, email or come in to get your yarn and pattern for this beautiful project
(we can wind yarns for you now) and get ready to cast on.
Please take a look at some (or all) of the photos on this pattern’s Ravelry page- they are stunning! We suggest solids, or 2 solids and one speckled like Julia has chosen. The sections of this pattern feature different textured stitches, lace stitches, and mosaic work. You won’t get bored at all!
Julia chose Electra Lite- a superwash merino with nylon and sparkle plus Happy Feet Splash- a speckled blend of Superwash merino and nylon. I love Julia’s color choices: Turquoise color 10 & Sapphire color 12 in Electra Lite plus Purple Iris color 106 in Happy Feet Splash. Both of these yarns are in stock and available in many colors.
