Get Your Yarn for Our Next KAL!

Anker’s Summer Shirt – our next KAL begins May 21. Get your yarn now!
Julia has done the best job of leading our KALs. As she finishes the Winter Beach Cardigan, our eyes have turned to our next KAL- Anker’s Summer Shirt.
This fun textured top will take no time to knit up in a DK weight yarn.
Julia has chosen a rich red color of Silky Wool- a beautiful Silk/Wool blend yarn. Perfect for 3 season wear. Other yarns perfect for this project are: Sea Isle Cotton, Neve,
Denim DK, and Calico.
While Julia is leading us in the knitting of the Anker’s Summer Shirt, I will try to keep up by knitting this Anker’s Pullover for my grandson. Sized from 3 months to 8 years. I will be using Worsted Merino Superwash. Another yarn for this child’s sweater is Berroco Comfort.

Elsa, one of our customers, just finished The Anker’s Summer Shirt in Calico.
She said I could share it with all of you. Here were her thoughts on the pattern and her choice of Calico: You helped me find the perfect yarn for this sweater a few months ago. It is an easy and well fitting pattern and the Calico spring green was just what I was looking for.
