Announcing the TKG Knitty Make-Along

At our final meeting of 2020, we spent the evening with Amy Singer, Editor, Publisher and Founder of the Knitty.com magazine. Amy launched Knitty.com in 2002 “to feature the knitting talent she’d been seeing on blogs all over the world in one tidy, professional-looking website”. In the 18 years since its debut, the quarterly Knitty magazine has launched many designers and published hundreds of patterns.

After a Knitty FO Fashion Show, followed by Amy’s presentation, chatter about a Knitty make-along soon started, and, well… here we are. All TKG Members are invited to the Knitty Make-Along (MAL)! Find all the details about participating below, the party links will be shared closer to the event.

October 21 meeting, open to guests

Join Kate Atherley and Kim McBrien Evans for a deep dive tour of their new book, Custom Shawls for the Curious and Creative Knitter. Kim and Kate will give an overview of the elements of the book, how they used these elements in building the beautiful shawl patterns in the book, and what’s on their needles a year after writing it. Through learning about how both Kate and Kim approach shawl design, you’ll get tips for creating your own amazing shawls through this book. Full meeting details . . .

This will be a virtual meeting via ZOOM. Log in from 7:15 pm for a 7:30 pm start.

In order for the presentation to run smoothly, the meeting will be conducted as a webinar. Participants will be muted but will be able to post questions for the presenter and communicate with other participants via the text chat function.
